Personalized RV signs say alot about the RV community

RVers are perhaps the friendliest people you'll encounter on this planet. The entire RV lifestyle invites hospitality and friendly discourse. When you arrive at an RV destination people walk by and greet you and frequently stop and chat. They will invite you to their RV for refreshments, offer you a chair and shoot the breeze. It doesn't take long before you become acquainted with all your neighbors. This social phenomena doesn't happen at hotels and motels across America. At hotels people enter their rooms and shut the door never to be seen again unless they emerge for ice or to go out to dinner.

Artist Heidi Breidenstein helps RVers display their hospitality by painting customized RV signs. Here is an example of a 5th wheel sign. These signs are made of vinyl so they'll stand up to weather. You can have a motorhome sign displaying any message. Your name or home town and state can be in the little sign by the campfire. Most RV parks allow you to walk close enough to your neighbor's RV that you can easily read these signs.
Heidi will paint anything you want on these RV signs. You can hang these on the RV or you can purchase a display stand. The signs are $32 plus $6.95 shipping and handling. You can order a sign by calling 1 (800) 508-8380. You can get more information here: Canterbury Creations.
Heidi will personalize the signs by painting the stripe on the RV the same color as the stripe on your rig. She says she'll do, "any wording on any sign in any color". You may have seen Heidi in action at the Tampa, Florida or Hershey, Pennsylvania RV shows.

  • Hmmm. There should be some warning here that: "This is an advertisement"

  • I'd read somewhere that it is a security issue to have your name outside your residence - that it makes it easy for someone to come to your door, address you by name causing you to assume it's someone you know & then you open the door to a crook. Even though we can see out our doors so this wouldn't be an issue for RVers, I still wonder if indiscriminately letting someone know your name is a good thing.

  • While I have heard a lot of talk about personal safety on the 'net, I don't recall ever having an issue out in the real world. A little common sense goes a long way .

  • We have a 5th wheel sign made by Heidi when we were at the Apple Festival in Ardentsville, PA last year and we have had many compliments and they have even taken the information off the label she puts on the back of your sign. As far as safety, use your common sense, you do not have to have your name on the sign if that is of concern.

  • My husband and I were recently talking about getting a new sign for our 5th wheel and when I saw these signs, he said "order one"!

    For those of you thinking "free" advertising, most everything shown on the RV Travel website, is some type of advertising because what they are writing about can help us with our many issues that come up on our RV.

    Keep up the "excellent" work!
