Family on Your Truck

Last time in our blog we talked about adorning your truck with too many Winnipeg Blue Bombers insignias. Today, we want to spin a bit differently.

One of the biggest trends we’re seeing on minivans and cars of late are sticker sets that show off the members of a family. This started with the ‘nuclear family’ (no, not The Simpsons) of a mom, dad, son and daughter.

It’s since exploded into all sorts of odd formations. Some we’ve admittedly chuckled at like a couple zombies or those that show an impossibly large family that one would think may actually fit in a minivan.

Now we’re not going to say that you should put a stop to this, but before you put this on your work truck, you might want to give it a couple thoughts. Yes, be proud of your familia, but really – this is one that’s going to look bad in less than a year’s time.

Instead, adorn your truck the smart way with Carlson Truck Outfitters. We’ve got great accessories that will last past smalltime trends and provide you with book a great look and functionality.

And no, we’re not going to start selling stick figure family mudflaps.

Beware of Easy Bomber Pride

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ have started another CFL season and while we’re doing our best to put a disastrous 2012 campaign behind us, there’s a great reason to celebrate this year, with the opening of Investor’s Group Field.

It goes without saying that this is the single most anticipated stadium opening in CFL history, if not in the entire history of sport in Canada. Can you recall a time in history where a stadium’s opening was put off by a full year? We can’t, and we certainly hope it won’t happen again.

Now with the opening of the new home turf for our boys in blue and gold, it’s easy to get swept up in jubilation, but let’s all get a hold of ourselves. There’s going to be the urge to deck out your truck with flags, bumper stickers and all sorts of decorations of the blue and gold nature.

Now certainly be it far from us to suggest that prairie pride is a bad thing, but at the same time remember that your truck should still look like a truck. Call us old fashioned, but a truck plastered in all sorts of decorations just doesn’t look good. There’s a simple motto to live by – less is better – when it comes to showing off your fandom.

Now over the next couple blogs we’re going to have some more fun, friendly advice for truck adornment, but remember in the meantime that the best truck accessories can be found in one spot – Carlson Truck Outfitters.
