The New Mexico Department of Transportation has announced that the “RV Friendly” highway sign logo, a round, yellow reflector sign with “RV” in the center, is approved for use in the state’s Commercial Logo Program for gas, food and lodging businesses.
Businesses can add these logos to their own highway signs to tell RVers which roadside gas, food, lodging and camping facilities easily accommodate RVs, including motorized and towable units.
New Mexico is the eighth state to adopt the “RV Friendly” road sign initiative, joining Michigan, Oregon, Louisiana, Tennessee, Washington, Florida and Texas.
State RV groups and enthusiasts have been successful in implementing the “RV Friendly” program both through legislation and by working with their state department of transportation.
The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) works with manufacturers, dealers and consumer clubs to address each state’s needs as this program rolls out across the country.
Gasoline, restaurant and lodging businesses who purchase highway exit logos are the targeted purchasers of the RV Friendly logo. RVIA’s goal is a 50-state implementation of the RV Friendly symbol.
