iRV2 Ladder Plak

What do you guys think about this?




The plak is secured to the ladder via a Frame System (shown). A stainless pin holds the plak and holder onto the ladder bosses. When you need to access the roof, you pull the pin and remove the plak and climb the ladder.

The plak can be fitted with suction cups and stuck on the inside/outside of a glass pane/windshield. There's a $4.00 upcharge for the cups and stainless screws.

The lettering is engraved and appears to be durable. We'll be sporting our new plak on the way to Louisville.

The plak I understand can be had without the frame system which is priced seperately. The frame system costs 15.50. I took the liberty to create a poll to see what you would be willing to pay for this type device.

You can also get a blank plak (black) and affix your iRV2 sticker on it as well.

The poll questions (prices) include the Frame System, Suction Cups and the Engraved Plak.

I'll buy one for my ladder...wait, I don't have a ladder! So now I have to get a ladder! RVs are worse than boats!

Just kidding, I was planning on a ladder purchase anyway.

If the cost is $15.50 and it sells for more, who gets the profit? I think its a great idea but in my opinion the cost is more than the value.

Plak

What if you need to use the ladder as a ladder. I bought the FNCA plak and ladder brakets, they mount so you can use the ladder if needed.

Ok, but the brackets that you can buy with the FMCA you don't need to do anything. I bought extra FMCA plaks and brakets to use the back side to add other sticker etc.

I have the rear mount which doesn't need to be removed to climb the ladder.

I'm assuming the front mounted is the only one DriVer is offering.

If rear-mount is preferred, it's available from various establishments (i.e. FMCA).

I only specified the cost of the frame system. That price does not include the plak.

I don't know who gets the profit Jim.... I'm just doing a research project. I don't think that I'll be getting in the plak business since these things need to be individually engraved. I don't have that type of equipment.

I'm just trying to find out if there's any traction for a competitive product where the plak can come off.

The bosses on the shown plak can be mounted inboard as well yet be quickly removable possibly for better footing.

These plaks are specifically engraved with our screen names and I have not seen that duplicated here.
