Here's a shot of the back of the coach...since the "spoiler" was made like it was, Newmar did not put a ladder on the Essex,as the upper rung arms going over the spoiler would've been too high.

That's ok....I've got no business on the roof anyway, but now I don't have my "favorite" place for the FMCA/iRV2 plaques...

I'm thinking of an "L" bracket I saw on the FMCA site for a front mounted FMCA plate as a last resort,but I'd really like the iRV2 on the rear...

TASTEFUL now boys and girls....I didn't break all them piggie banks and more,to trash the rear end all up....

Any ideas?

You can always place an iRV2.com sticker on the rear cap like I did. It looks great back there, it's flat and out of the way.

Put one centered on that spoiler- everyone will be able to see it!

You can borrow the cordless drill I always carry in my coach.

But, if I were you I'd put my plates on that spoiler. I'd just wire tie the things up there.
And you could even light 'em up with an LED.

Or you do up your mud flap like mine.

I vote for the oval sticker applied to rear cap, directly above the "third" brake light. ED

OK, some practical questions:

1. Does that beast need a spoiler to hold it's rear end on the road at high speeds?

2. Just how does one get on the roof?

It sure is purty! I also vote to put the IRV2 plaque just above the center brake light.

I used heavy duty velcro to attach my FMCA plaque on the rear of my coach.

No...but it looks good....

2. Just how does one get on the roof?

"One" might opt to use a "portable" ladder....

It sure is purty! I also vote to put the IRV2 plaque just above the center brake light.

As long as "goo be gone" works,if I ever decide to move it,I'll consider that...I do like the "on the spoiler" idea though...

Use the screws holding the third brake light to coach to hold a braket for the plaque if you do not want to apply the decal straight to the paint. You could hang it below the light and put a rubber turtle bumper on the bottom of plaque to prevent rubbing the paint. Good luck and enjoy!

I agree with Bob, I don't think I would want to apply anything over the paint. How about a receiver held plate with the sticker on it. Granted it will be missing when towing but the toad would block it anyway if it were mounted low.

THAT'S a GREAT idea Peter,as I do have a sticker on the toad....

I have to be honest, after sleeping on the idea of putting it on the paint,I couldn't bring myself to do that....

Now for the front-

Like you, I did not want to place anything on the paint, front or rear. So I'm in the process of getting a piece of plexiglass that I can place inside the windshield when parked. It will have all of the club and group stickers that I wish to display. If I do not want to display it, I'll just keep it stored away.
