Those destination sticker things ...

You know, the oval ones with three letters that say where you've been? Do Airstreamers put them on their trailers? If so, where? And is there an order to them (i.e., starting at the top left, moving horizontally, going down a row at a time ... or alphabetically ... or by deviation from GMT ...?)

I have a 22 Sport, so there are no rockguards, which seems like it would be the most likely place to put these stickers, if at all. But there is a plastic "rockguard" layer where the metal rockguards would be on the bigger units. I was thinking that if people do it, and if they put them on the nose, that would be a good place, since this plastic layer is probably pretty easy to remove.

I know that it's my trailer and I can do what I want. I just don't want to let the United International Airstream Community down by doing something that is only done by the Big Aluminim Siding Box Trailers.

It's yours to do as you wish... Who cares what others think? If you like tokens of your travels.... Have at it!
We use the in side of our entry door as our sticker place.

The only place I've ever seen three-letter destination stickers is on luggage at an airport, to make sure the luggage went to the same airport you did. Never saw one on a trailer or motorhome; no need, since my motorhome goes where I do and it doesn't get lost in transit like luggage.

But if you want to keep a collection of destination stickers, the most likely arrangement I can think of is chronological order, first-visited first, last-visited last. Or reverse chronological order, first-visited on the bottom, last visited on the top so you work your way up the list rather than down the list.

Those are country code stickers from European countries... now obsolete as the EU code is built into the vehicles numberboard.
Americans bring them home as a token of travel. Usually people will still display them on vintage foreign sports cars and the like.
The ones you see from the Outer Banks etc are just oval stickers.

Oh God.... I didn't mean to single out the outer banks!
Sorry to those who are or who might become offended!
Its just that you never see ones from Kansas or Oklahoma.... OK sorry to those folks who now or in the future may become.....

Always thought those maps of the states with different color stickies for each state you've been to were real neat, and much neater than a bunch of stickers like on my A/S. Always was going to get one - well maybe next year. Anyone know where to get them?

Visited States Map by epgSoft

You can create an image of one with your visited states for posting.
The above is one but there are others, just Google "visited states map".

I thought you could order one for you window, they must have stopped, I can't find it now.

We put stickers from national parks, monuments, etc on the back window of our Bambi ... like HiHo above ... they come off easily when they get old or need to be replaced .. and serve as visual reminders of past trips and good times.

I thought the white ovals with black letters were country of origin stickers for automobiles, as required in Europe. I don't think there's a requirement for their use in North America.
