In the near future, I will be acquiring a gently used, one owner 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan with ~45k (surely highway) miles.  This is coming from our bankrupt friends at Hertz. It's white. White is boring.

Any good ideas on making it....less boring? I am willing to spend some money on this, but think more like custom wrap and less like custom paint.

While tempting, I don't think I'll be following in the footsteps of this intrepid Boxster owner, but...something?

 

Probably not full on race livery, although that might be fun. Maybe just a good color? Anyone seen anything interesting on a minivan lately?

I bought a Hertz van too. White would have been out first choice but red or gray was what they had at the right time.

Anyone willing to advertise on your van? This could lead to $$ for the project fund.

Starsky and Hutch sail panel stripe?  just reverse the colors so yours is red....

might be fun to make it into some kind of "race support vehicle" and resurrect an old defunct livery that was cool but we don't see anymore.  for something Mopar specific, maybe run the TA stripe + blacked out pillars and roof over the bonkers challenger color of your choice:

and run this down the sides so it looks like a proper support vehicle

and please, don't forget to add the bright yellow Shipping Bananas on the front apron like all the cool Charger/Challeger kids.

I will say that I like the Solo Cup graphics on the Prius...ha.

 

I am posting these next 2 pictures to highlight what I'll call the "body ridge" just under the side glass but above the door handles. Probably about a 3" space that then tappers to a point near the headlight.  

This could be a fun spot to play something subtle.  Martini stripe tape done down this body line could be cool.  

 

Something more retro Mopar could be cool too in this space.  Just filling the space with Petty Blue would be cool too.  The world might not fully know what you have a light blue stipe on your white van but to those that don't know, they will not be offended either.  True, Petty was Plymouth, not Dodge, but still Mopar. 

 

Some other icons for that space could also be what are called Strobe Stipes from the 'cuda: 

Could be a broken black stripe on the white van or any color of your choice.  Heck, combine the two and have the strobe stripe in Petty Blue.

This could work really well

I like the cuda stripes idea too!

Dodge Truck had some fun playing Super Bee style rear panel graphics.  

On Ebay you can find many adaptation on this theme made for trucks like this $25 version that could adapted to your van.
