Maybe you’ve seen them, whizzing past you on the interstate. The ‘serious’ campers. The ones with the map of the United States on the side of the RV, showing everywhere they’ve gone.

For those using or planning on using these maps, it is important that you fully understand the rules and regulations regarding the proper use of these markers.
Annotated code for State Marking Stickers Map
(Federal Highway Administration and DOT guidelines)
Section A: Rules of state markings
Subsection 1: Per DOT guidelines and the Federal Highway Administration persons with state sticker maps on Campers/RV’s must have slept in that state in their camper for a minimum of 7 hours to qualify for a sticker for said state. Hook-ups are not needed. Only the driver must sleep in the Camper/RV for the said time.
Subsection 2: Persons can qualify for a state sticker by sleeping in a state approved rest area, chain store parking lot (Wal-Mart), grocery store or designated truck stop. In remote locations the side of the road will qualify. Persons wishing to qualify for said state sticker must also adhere to Subsection 1 of the annotated code of state marking stickers.
Subsection 3: Persons wishing to challenge the rulings of the code for sticker qualification can submit in writing to:
Department of Transportation
1234 Independence Ave
Please state the reason you feel you should qualify, attach a picture of the location in which you stayed and submit it on a DOT form 8745 with a self addressed envelope. Please allow 36 to 40 weeks for processing your claim.
