    You know the sort.. ones stuck on by owners .. usually on the back end..

    examples...

    'Adventure Before Dementia'.. 'If The Van Is Rockin' don't come knockin'

    World Map and places we have been..

    Black decals of Camels, Moose, Bulls etc.. countries visited..

    Murals of Desert scenes with palm tress, Wolves, North American Indian Chiefs etc ..

    some of the murals are quite artistic.. but sorry, not for me..

    Each to his own Jim, we had moose on when we bought her, currently replacing them as Boss lady likes them, also a small ab4d and 1 from our favourite Salou campsite but, most importantly, a FUN sticker in each front side window. :clap2:

    Some are quite tasteful and artistic. The ones that I find a little annoying are the camel/bull/goat/inflatable dolly black outlines on the back. You've been to Morocco? So what? Thousands have.

    A bit like a chav car driver with a Nurburgring sticker on the back. Some people who live nearby put camel/bull/goat/inflatable dolly stickers on their cars; they must have a good supply as every new car is thus anointed.

    Now where is my Hudson Strait sticker? You know, the one with the polar bears on it.....

    Not that keen on them myself if truth be told, but they do cover up the holes in the bodywork rather nicely. :getmecoat:

    image.jpg image.jpg As you say Jim good job we are not all the same we have two that mean something to us one is a saying that is my take on life, the other is a very small hand painted picture of a scene we came across while travelling through Morocco and asked a local artist to paint it for us.

    I have the small black bull and materdor that came with the van. I might add to the mural count if I see something I like !
    "On an adventure before my pension fund evaporates to nothing"

    Maybe

    I stuck two self adhesive reflectors to stop our bikes rubbing against the back of the van - very artistically applied
    Does that count?

    Seen loads of vans with the front dashboard covered with an army of teddy bears and stuffed toys.

    Another van we saw, the lady had very expensive table cloth, napkins and colour co ordinated fake flowers in a vase - on their picnic table.

    We spend so much time in our Motorhomes, and become so attached to them, it's not surprising that people want to add their own individual touches.

    When I see the 'Don't come knockin' if the van is rockin' .. I always think that is more likely wishful thinking than any kind of reality.. :rolleyes:

    and even if it were seen "rockin' " .. more likely to be someone falling out of the dropdown bed going for a nightime pee..

    I have seen a few nice ones but several very naff ones. Personally I wouldn't have them on my motorhome. I suppose they can bet likened to tattoo's but thats another story.

    Reading some of the replies it seems quite a few should have the "Born to be Grumpy" sticker. :whistle::whistle: Nothing wrong with being different :)(y)[​IMG]

    We saw an ex pat on an aire in Brittany with a photo of his wife and two dogs he had made into the bedroom back window screen ! It looked great and he said he knows it's his van! And someone sang" How much is that doggy in the window" !!
    Most vans have decals of some sort or another of which we may not choose but makes it our van !

    Each to there own and shows that peops love their vans !:)
