The most fundamental question about location might be what wall of the trailer - rear, front, or sides. The most popular choice seems to be on the rear, where it can be read by following traffic - after all, someone driving the opposite direction doesn't have much time to glimpse the name on the front. Maybe those putting it on the rear should imagine trying to read it from a safe following distance while everything is moving and the trailer is somewhat dirty from road grime.

There's another time that you might want the name to be read, and that's when it's in a campsite. Since most organized campsites are arranged to be backed into, it is the front of the trailer which is visible to neighbors. I have seen people set up for the season (with other types of RV) and put out a sign with the RV's name (or more commonly their own name) as if it were a rural home. A name decal on the front of the trailer is the same idea, and doesn't need to be set up. In this case, the viewer is likely walking by, not far away.

The other place which makes sense to me is on the curb side, beside the door, for visitors.

Brian B-P,
We've talked about curb side under the kitchen window, and also on the back under the dinette window. We are having decals made and will decide where to place and put on after we pick up.
Our decals that ETI are putting on are gold. To differentiate from the trailer decals the name decals will be copper.

I put the name on the front rock guard so it could be seen in a campground - but when the rock guard is up (as it usually is when parked), the name is not as visible.

Ten Forward has black graphics. My tug is white with black/chrome accents. I figure black graphics are like the "little black dress."

Thumbs up on the little black dress, as long as the shoes are red!
