Got a couple off ebay today. They're not " correct" for this year and style, but I'm happy with them and the price aint bad either.Got em for $6.00 free shipping. I put them on the sides of the frame. Had to cut of the gator outline so they would fit the tube frame. Thought I'd post some pics.

Jim,....those decals look great on your trailer!

We originally had a "Gator" Trailer almost like yours under our 1960 Glasspar G-3. Unfortunately, rust got to it in the garage it was being stored in.

I'm hoping to take the crestliner down to the coast (Holden beach)this summer, but the gator will stay home. I'm going to redo my spare wesco trailer for the aristo and put the rusted wesco under the crestliner for salt water use.

Found this on e-bay the other day. Thought someone doing one of these gator trailers might be looking for this. I can say the quality looks good to me although the seller states the decal is not recommended for outside use. My trailer will not be left outside no longer than I'll be on the lake. I did trim off the "authorized dealer" part.

Thanks Robert, Of course I found this decal after I had already put the others on the sides LOL. The decal on the tongue is like what came on this trailer new. Thought someone might be looking for it as I was a year or two back. jim

Hi John, here's a '56 Gator I did for my G3 back in the summer of 2010.

My friend who owns a '59 G3 here in California has a '60 Gator model 214 under his G3.

...Jim. That's creative. I like either one, the latter more appropriate to the year. Your trailer may be older than the '56 that I restored. The difference I see is the fender. Mine has that flat metal piece on the side.

Well done Jim on the Gator. She looks fantastic.

Thanks Eduardo, I didn't find the correct decal until right after I had just installed the "gator" decals LOL. If I ever want to go 100% correct on the decals,I guess I could remove them. I had thought at one time about putting those metal pieces on my fenders so I could have the decals like yours. I'm really not sure what year the trailer is. All I know is it's titled a '63 trailer. Mine originally had black wheels and winch,but I just didn't want black wheels. jim
