California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed legislation
adopting the popular “RV Friendly” highway sign logo for use in the
state’s commercial logo program for gas, food and lodging businesses.
California is the 12th state to join the “RV Friendly” sign
initiative. Other states include Minnesota, Iowa, New Mexico, New
Hampshire, Michigan, Oregon, Louisiana, Tennessee, Washington, Florida
and Texas. State RV groups and enthusiasts have been successful in
implementing the program both through legislation and by working with
their state transportation departments.
The “RV Friendly” sign is a round, yellow reflector sign with “RV”
featured prominently in the center. Gas, restaurant, camping and
lodging businesses that purchase highway exit logo signs are the
targeted buyers of the sign. Adding the “RV Friendly” symbol to their
existing highway service signs allows businesses to tell RV travelers
that their gas, food, lodging or camping facility can easily accommodate
RVs, including both motorhomes and towable units.
