We had one on the back of our old trailer that had nearly every state filled in. We've actually been to every state, but haven't RVed to all of them. Still haven't figured out how to drive to Hawaii. I know--you can fly to Hawaii and rent an RV while you're there. But it just ain't the same.

Thanks
Are you talking about the ones that stick on the coal and then you stick a piece of the puzzle (state) on the map as you leave the state after rotting? Good Sam is where I got mine.

I have this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/15...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I mounted it in a poster frame. I have traced the roads for every trip we have taken. I use a different color sharpie for each trip. There is pretty good detail so I donít have to create a lot of roads. I add a small sticker for all the places we have spent the night.

I have this in addition to the standard US and Canada map with stickers for states and Provinces.

As long as I can stick the state one at a time, that will work!!

You can. The map will stick anywhere or just thumb track it. The states stick on the map one at a time. I have mine stick on the outside but the entry door. Strives up a lot of conversations.

"stick on the coal", "after rotting"? I'm just not sure what you're saying here partner but it sure the hell gave me a laugh. Cheers

Should have been stick on the wall, and after touring. Don't know how the hell they got changed the way it did, but I'm glad I gave you a laugh. We allI should laugh a little once in awhile

I bought a pillow top on Etsy and resized it to make a pillow for our motorhome. I colored the states visited, using fabric markers, and used National Parks fabric for the back. We didn't want to put a decal on the unit itself, so this works well for us.
