A RV State sticker travel map survey

I'm taking a fun little survey to settle a discussion my wife are having
We got a state sticker map when we bought our new RV
When do we get to add a state sticker on the map?
I say when we put the slides out and spend more then one night
My wife says we spent the night in a parking lot in Nebraska( on our way to
Colorado) we get to add Nebraska

Your thoughts

I feel if you spend a night you add a sticker.

OUR rule is we have to spend the night in the state, passing thru does not count. It's your map so you choose, everyone is different

My rule is stay the night or at least be there most of the day visiting different sights.

Yes, folks... this question has been asked here before and the consensus answer has been what dblr posted here. Itís your map so itís your rules.

Do whatever you want.
I have been a Road Warrior since 1965. Visiting all 50 states is as easy pie.
Hawaii takes a plane flight or a ship.

where's the survey? On the computer you go into Go Advanced to create the survey. (right below where you hit post quick reply or 'go advanced').


I have the map, and I slap a state on if I've spent at least one night in the state. In the RV I am using. I'm a firm believer it HAS to be for that particular RV. THESE ARE THE RULES!!! I don't care that you've camped in every state in your 50 year travel history. I want to know what states your present RV has visited!


There will be those who say, 'nah, it's your map, do what you want'. I say, 'nay, nay, nay!' Follow MY rules!

Putting the RV on a ship to Hawaii probably makes more sense than flying it. Something I noticed is that there arenít many RVs or campgrounds in Hawaii.

Back to the original question, our rule is the RV simply needs to exist, on the ground, within the borders of the state to be counted on the map.

To me the map is a vacation map. Where ever we have stayed either in the RV or have flown too. Such as Alaska to take a cruise, then that counts. If you have left your main place of residency and traveled to an area, sleeping there overnight than a sticker can be put on.

My Map my rules!

My avatar map is based on whether we "camped" in a state. Either at a campground or in the woods somewhere. And that could be tent or RV, ours or someone else's.

That's why I have AK with nothing in between the other states. We camped there several times when we were stationed there, but haven't done any long trips with the campers.

Our rule was, we had to sleep there. I’ve diverted plans so that we could pickup a state or two, driving an extra hour or a little short/little longer so that we could setup for the night.

Friends of ours say they have to “have an experience there”/do something meaningful.

Other friends say they have to, “get it on”.

So... all maps have different rules!

Oh and, put those slides out at Walmart, they don’t care! Just don’t block a roadway.

Our rule... spend a night.
Otherwise you are just passing through.
No one wants to hear your stories of simply driving through every state but they do like to hear your stories of where you've stayed.

There are plenty of tent "campers" in the parks and on the beaches. Just a little bit cleaner than "The Streets of San Francisco", but not much. Finding places I wanted to jog in Honolulu wasn't as easy as it should have been.

There's always rental vans. Friends of ours started this company and handle reservations for it now:

I don't have one of those maps. I don't want people to know where I've been. They might blame me for what they find there

Our Forums 101 How-to sticky thread has a link to a site where one can build a "VISITED States" map (their term). See post #25. https://www.epgsoft.com/visited-states-map/. Their site says "Everyone has an opinion, but the truth is it's your map, so it's completely up to you. Some people even have multiple maps for different modes of travel (i.e. RV vs. boat)."
