Florida becomes part of “RV Friendly” highway sign program
Riverview, Florida – Florida has become part of the “RV Friendly” highway sign program, which is designed to help recreational vehicle travellers locate establishments that cater to their needs.
The “RV Friendly” markers are bright yellow circles with the letters “RV”; local businesses such as restaurants, hotels, travel destinations, attractions and gas stations can place them under their “Gas-Food-Lodging” highway signs, as long as they meet state requirements, including large parking spaces, entrances, exits and overhang clearances.
“These signs will make a huge difference for RV travellers in our state,” says Florida Representative Stan Jordan, who was influential in passing the legislation. “When they see an ‘RV Friendly’ logo on a sign, they will know with confidence they can get in, get the service they need and get out safely. As an added benefit, businesses who participate should see an increase in the RV vehicles they provide service to.”
