We mounted ours on the front window and only put on the stickers for the states in which we have actually slept in the trailer in the state. Before she knew the criteria, our daughter was trying to figure out how we got from NV to WY and from NC to AL.
We picked it up at a RV dealer/repair shop in Grand Island, NE while bringing Big Ei from CA to VA. We didn't get the Canada map at the time as we had only been in BC.
We got a little inspired when our neighbor at the Silver Star RV Park in Vernon, BC shared his travel map with us. He (85) and his wife (xx), out of Red Deer, Alberta, travel every summer with a pick-up and 5th wheel and have covered almost every road in Alberta and BC. We got to share their joy when they got the good news that their newest great grandchild was born.
You just never know who your neighbor might be and what memories you will make when you are camping.

Where can you get one of those maps?

I love the refrigerator idea.
Brothers Manufacturing in Redlands, CA sells the maps. Also Camping World and some RV shops have them.

You have certainly gotten around! Hope we can make it to all of those places counting with and without a trailer. Doubt we can manage all of that with a trailer alone.

You can go to Hawaii and rent a trailer and count that!

Today it is worn and faded and looks unkempt, especially the states colored RED.
Attachment 83870

I'm considering removing it.
Paint it! or get a new one... Neato! My map would only have two states.. but, I'll add another one in the fall (and happily!) Dang work anyway...

Frederick, yes, just get a new one. You will be glad you did.

Donna, two states. We have to get you out of Oregon more. Then again, you probably have more camping memories than the rest of us put together.

People are going to wonder how we made it from South Dakota to Washington and British Columbia when we pick up our Escape in BC.
