FMCA Coach Plates

Just got my FMCA coach plates. Seems the best place to put them (one) is on the ladder. They sell brackets, but it looks like a couple of black or white strap ties would do the job.

What does every body else do? Any other suggestions as to where to put them?

I bought the brackets since they allow you to use the ladder step where the plaque goes without taking s BIG step over it.

I agree with the rest. The brackets from Kiley Mold allow me to use the ladder without tripping over the goose egg or breaking something.
Two suction cups on the windshield for front mounting.

I use plastic tie wraps on the ladder, gong on three years. If I have to cut them they are easily replaced.

I use the suction cups with a hook for the front lower passenger side windshield.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I've used this style from Plak-R.com for several years now. They've held up well.

These signs seem pretty important-what is their function?

They tell other RVers you are part of FMCA, just like having one that shows your user name on this site, I'm looking to get one that says

I've used plastic ties since 1999 and never had a problem using the ladder. There is enough room between each step for both the FMCA "football" and my feet.

I use the brackets and attach to my ladder. Wish I had an iRV2 plate with my ID to display also.
