FMCA Goose Egg

Just got my new FMCA Coach Goose Eggs!

Where/How do you all mount them?

Pics would be great.

They sell a bracket for the rear ladder & another one for the front license plate location.

the previous owner had an fmca set and I just have to replace his when mine come in !

I may relocate them though...
not sure if there is a 'standard' place to put them

(and no, I'm not from Oregon, but the coach was!)

Not really a standard place. Many members, me included, use the ladder mount in the rear like pictured. Since my home state doesn't require a front plate, I use that location in the front. The front position in your pic looks fine.

Now join Monaco International and they'll send you a plate also.

I used the rubber insulated hose mounts around the ladder on the Dutch Stars. Used stainless steel bolts, washers, and lock nuts. On the front I used the Kiley stick on mounts. All worked just fine.
The Magna doesn't have a ladder and I really don't want to stick the Good Sam Lifetime, FMCA nor Escapees tags right to the rig. Still thinking it through for now.

Our egg and associated eyebrows for National Director, Vice President Northwest Area, and Treasurer Northwest Area are mounted on the ladder. I have nothing on the front

Rear mounted on ladder in bracket I bought at CW. I bought 2 suction cups and my front goose egg is mounted on the lower pass side inside windshield. No drilling, no sticking, no fuss.

Black wire ties onto the ladder worked for me.

Black strip ties hold mine on the ladder nice and tight. I also use suction cups for inside the non-moving part of my drivers slide-open window. Welcome to FMCA!!

We've been trying to figure out where to mount ours too. Thanks for the ideas.

Are you going to make the North Bend rally? We are if the DW's health holds out.

I used Velcro to mount ours on our 03 Phaeton 15 years ago. Then moved it to our 2011 coach. When we purchased our current coach, I didn't bother putting it on. I think they are a bit tacky and detract from the paint scheme at the rear plus, I don't feel the need for one.

Many of us who are former members of what once was a great RV club have turned our FMCA "goose eggs" around.... so only a black blank goose egg can be seen by others.
If FMCA ever gets their act together I will rejoin and proudly display my goose egg.

Congrats on your new Mandalay coach and welcome to FMCA!

All the suggestions provided are good and give you some options. I use the latter bracket for my rear egg and I use the suction cups to mount my egg inside the windshield.
