There are those who take a dim view of the "quick stop and stick it" philosophy. They figure that you'd better at least have driven around in the state a bit, seen some of the more memorable sites, and then, sure, put on the sticker. We'll leave all this to your discretion.
What about resale? If you put one of these gizmos on the side of your motorhome, you'll watch the resale value shoot downhill. At least that's the reckoning of one RV professional. The way he figures it, "personalizing" your RV just tends to diminish its value in the eyes of potential buyers. If that's true, and yet you still want bragging rights, what can you do? One fellow suggests putting the sticky map up in an obliging window. That way, when you're ready to sell the RV, you can take after the map with a razor blade scraper and eradicate the thing.
This of course, all leads to truth and resale. Say you bought a motorhome that some other traveler had installed one of these memorable states maps in. Is it truthful to leave the thing up, leaving others with the impression that you been places that Willy Nelson only dreamed of going to?
Well, that's all the philosophy we have time for today. By the way, if you really WANT one of those "I been there," or "My rig's been there," or "I wanta go there" whathaveyou state sticky maps, here's a neat one that let's you fill in the state with a license plate image.
