Maps on RV's that display travels

My wife and I were having a discussion about those maps of the US and Canada that you see displayed on RV's that show where they have been. A good question came up and we would like opinions. The question is; should the map only show areas that particular RV has traveled or the travels that have been made by all of the RV's that family has owned? It seems to us that just because we have a fairly new RV that we should be able to include all of the states and provinces we have traveled in our past RV's.
Opinions are welcome and appreciated.
Thank you!

Truly personal preference!
DW & I have been almost every state and parts of Mexico and Canada- tent, trailer & MH. (Military moved us a lot) so our current map shows only the places that we have taken the kids in our coach.

Our personal map rule includes all our rv's but we must spend at least one night in a state to qualify.

As stated above it's your map and your choice.
All we have to do is pass through the state and it counts. Also where we were with our last coach counts.

Don't put a map of where we have been on our RVs. Just on this site with our other info. Only care to know where we have been, what we have seen, and what we have done over the last 30 years of RVing. We don't care that other people know where we have been--but that's just our preference. Others can do what ever turns them on or feel right to them. Good for them.

Agree that it is your choice on what to display. It is a great conversation starter when meeting fellow RVers in your travels. Also, helpful to other RVers when have spent the night in the states you have shown for campground referrals, etc...

Have a great day!

Obviously, there are no rules. It's your map and it's your RV so you can do as you please. You might want to consider where you put the map so that when you sell it you don't have a permanent imprint on the side of your coach where the paint did not weather the same as the surrounding paint.

DW & I refer to them as: "been everywhere, seen nothing maps". Memorabilia does not constitute memories.

For us to consider a state visited, we must actually spend 1+ days sightseeing. We have passed through several states and the only thing we viewed was the road we were on. Does not count.

That's my rules and I'm sticking to it.

Had the map on the last two motorhomes but now have moved to magnets on the frig of attractions we've visited. After hitting 48 out of 50 states, the map wasn't too interesting.

For us it's the wife and I have have to spend at least one night in the state for it to go on.

I've been to a few states with out her due to racing but they don't get to go up until were there together.

My personal rule is not to have a map-----I keep a log of our travels.
