I doubt many people getting an unexpected knock on the door are stupid enough to fall for that. Even if they said they were the police (the usual criminal trick) most people know not to unlock a door until identity of the person is first established with a securely locked door between them.

I see several of you have irv2 plaques. I checked the store and they are not listed. How do you get one?

I have a front plate that says: "Certified Old Fart". Does that count?

Maybe and maybe not. You'd be surprised at some of the stupid things people do to get themselves in trouble.

I made mine back in 2010...I call Kiley Mold and talked to the "old man," he sent me a plate that they used for Monaco International (white) with no numbers. I then took the plate to a friend's body shop and had him spray paint the plate to match the white color on the iRV2 sticker, then trim out the edge of the "egg" with the matching blue color from the sticker. Then I just took the sticker and lined it up on the plate. Turned out pretty good, you can't really tell that it's just a sticker on there.

They are all homemade.

I got a plain white oval from Plak-R and put my iRV2 sticker on. Also got the frames from them.

I'm sure I'm in the minority on this one, but I agree with the OP.

There are no stickers, plaques, etc on my rig and I can't see myself ever putting such stuff on it. It just doesn't make sense to us.

Actually I didn't mean the tone of my original question to sound like I had an opinion. The plain black plastic plaques are indeed ugly when pulling them out of the envelope, but I think they do look cool now that I've seen the pictures of them mounted with other plates on the ladder.

My original question was intended to find what to do with them and why use them at all, not to pass judgement on the taste of those who use them.

My DH said FMCA has them thru an outside source.

Yes, you can go to the FMCA web site and order the ladder brackets.

Or. as I have done, use plastic tie wraps and secure to the ladder. I just change the tie wraps out annually.

For the front one I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased some clear stick-on suction cups that have a little hook. I stick them to the passenger side lower window area with the plate attached to the hooks.

Happy trails.

Edited: Here is the link to the company that makes the brackets, Kiley Mold Company

If it hasn't been mentioned, a proper sized "P" clamp will work. You can get them with a rubber liner, in plastic, aluminum or steel.
