    Hi the moose or Elk stickers are normaly connected with scandinavia or sweden, the Germans are the most you will find who use this type of sticker along with the bull of spain and the trolls also from up here, i think its to make them feel well traveled, it has also been know that swedes have sold Elk poop to the German turist,:thumb: Cheers Alf.

    My understanding has always been that it's migratory symbol and hence depicts travel.

    from memory volvo had the origins of this

    The stickers Elk usually denotes that the motorhome has been to Scandinavia
    The Bull to Spain
    The Camel to Morocco.
    Some have the map of Europe filled in with the places they have visited.

    Now some could say it is just to say hey look where we have been, but I think there is more to it than that, us motorhomeres in general being a friendly bunch, if we were thinking of going to Morocco and see a camel on the back of a motorhome, then you could normally approach the person and ask them about their experiences of that country. Bull Spain etc.

    I dint think your quit right, first yes the Elk does travel BUT only in there home area's, and secondley, the Moose comes from Canada which are slightley taller and some times white in colour, and the Elk is from Scandinavia, hope this helps those that seem confused, and germans come to scandinavia by there loads in mh, and buy any thing about elks, they even steel the road signs to take back to germany, Cheers Alf:thumb:

    We've got a sticker with a couple of Oak leaves on it - may mean we are druids but more likely members of the national trust and there are 2 round yellow ones with smiley faces on, these are traditionally displayed to show the owners are complete nutters and you should only approach at your own risk.

    I think that's right anyway, from what I have observed .....

    Stickers

    A few years back I had a landrover 110 in army green. To make it look less military and avoid being shot at, I made some animal stickers, using the vinyl used for graphics. All I did was mark them on the backing and cut them out, so I had a Cheetah catching a gazelle, moose, bear etc.

    When we stopped off in the Loire to visit an ex-colleague I inadvertantly went the wrong way up a one way street. Apparently the locals still ask when the mad englishman with the animals on the side of his vehicle is coming back:Smile:
