North Americans may have noticed that U-Haul
trucks and trailers are emblazoned with colorful SuperGraphics
. First created in 1988 (previously
), the mobile gallery now comprises 206 images. Most U.S states and Canadian territories and provinces are now honored by multiple designs, as are the U.S. armed forces and 9/11
. The classic America and Canada's Moving Adventure
series, seen on trucks and trailers
, features an iconic image for each state, province and territory. The Venture Across America and Canada
series, begun in 1997, presents "carefully researched rare findings, little-known facts and mysteries,"
exploring science and nature, technology and history. At the U-Haul website, the "Learn More" link on each Venture SuperGraphic page leads to a surprisingly exhaustive discussion of the subject of each graphic. [more inside]
