Need help with Graphics

The wife has finally decided on the name for the 36RD5s. I need to know what kind of graphic would work on putting the name on the sides of the fifth wheel. Probably would have to go on the opposing cargo bin doors or on the opposing slides. Would it have to have any coating applied over it for protection?

Thanks,

A sign shop could make up a sign using vinyl...Myself, I wouldn't do it. When we're living in ours..it's our home. I haven't named my house..JMHO

Everyone has their own taste, and if you want to name your RV I say go for it and do so.

My recommendation would be to have the decal letters made out of a reflective vinyl material. Such as I have letters on my Ford Superduty that in the day time look black, but at night when light shines on them they are a reflective Gold. The reflective color options are pretty broad to choose from. And being reflective at night could be a plus.
Pay attention to installation directions, make sure the surface is clean before applying the decal, use plenty of soapy water on both the decal and surface when setting the decal in the desired location and then squeegee the soapy water and any air bubbles out with care. They will last for many years to come.

We refer to ours as "home". Why? Because it is! No need for a decal. IMHO

Hey its Your unit add or delete what you like! Most Good sign shops can now make (whatever you desire in Vinyl decals) I put my screen name on the A/C unit and made strips for the (sides of the slides so they don't look like a White Refrigerator sticking out of the side of a R/V. Lots of Members on here have ( Oval FRF Decales/with their screen name on their units)! Camp On! Youroo!!

Why not go with boat graphics. Everyone names their boat. Check out Overtons.

You wanna name your house, go for it...I've seen plenty of people names their "homes" - everything from Casa Del Playa to Beach House. We went to a local graphics shop to have ours made, but our choice for placement was the back window:
