Hanging a camp sign

So as a spur of the moment purchase when we were in the black hills we bought one of these high priced signs

I took off last name. At any rate any ideas for displaying at campsite, my DW is on my back to figure out a way to display on labor day. Any suggestions? If I had a 5er figured I could tap in some picture hanger eyebolts and hang on hitch pin. Want to make something that will secure it from twisting and swaying in the wind and getting beat up.

We use two shepherd hooks that were purchased at the dollar store. They are about 2ft high. Put an eye bolt in each end of the sign and hand from hooks. Work great with the sign at the front of our TT.

I concur. 2 eyebolts,a chain and one shepherds hook. Works like a charm.

With only one sheperd's hook, it will twist and turn. OP wants it to stay straight.

I hang ours on the propane tank cover. I use a couple of long tie wraps on the chain and put them over the thumb screws on the access cover.

I used 2 large brass "L" hooks screwed into top opposing each other. Slips onto the pin box lip. Works great, out of the way & it don't get left behind when breaking camp!

Not a bad idea, thank you.

Thank you all for replies! Any ideas for a stand alone type? A couple things to mention:

If its on the front of TT nobody can read, cause f250 in front of trailer. If its hanging by top only, it can twist. Was trying to think of a way you can put close to road and be supported by 4 positions to hang straight and unaffected by wind . Hmmm...
