LOL.  I seen one the other day that was a pretty old Swift box that had a new door put on and they put the newer "Swift" decal on it like this one.  Looked funny on an older trailer.

I've been seeing those too. An old trailer with the new logo on the back door. Here I think it's a newer trailer, and I go to see the number, and I'm like "Hey what the heck is this"?  :x It's a tease. :|

I've helped install many door panels like this! Whiting panels are a breeze but I think TODCO's suck sewer water! As for the missing decal on the new door...could be the shop didn't have that decal in stock at the time. And it looks like someone got carried away with the reflective stripes!

Freight21 that photo was taken sometime last year, and that 081221 was built in April 2008.
