Is there a Heartland receiver plaque? I know most of us have 5th wheels but it wood be nice to have a Heartland logo plaque for the receiver of our tow vehicle. Any chance one will become available in the future?

I have someone looking into this.

Hi all,

I have looked into this. Here's what we're looking at:
http://www.gannett-line.com/images/domehitch_photo.jpg

What I would do is do a full-color Heartland Owners Club logo and make these orderable for club members.

I have to commit to 100 minimum and the cost would be $6 US plus shipping. Club members would order them directly from Martin Marketing. Orders by club members for this with other items (flags, hats, shirts, jackets etc.) can be combined to keep your overall shipping costs as low as possible.

Ok - I need a show of hands (not commitments), who would be interested in ordering one of these, should we move forward and place a 100 unit order?

I have added a poll to track the results so go ahead and vote. Voting in this poll is anonymous.

I don't have this budgeted so I'd have to wait until after January 2010 to have these made.

Jim

Sure, I'll take one, too. Now, if you could come up with a big decal for the HOC to stick on, rather than the plaque...

Will these be for a 2" reciever hitch ?
If they are I would have to go out and buy a reducer as mine is a 2 1/2" reciever :(

You mean like this but smaller, the guy that made this for me says he can make them any size.:cool:

jbeletti
09-25-2009, 08:39 PM
2" only Ken. Yeah - reducer for you and me both. Class V hitch. Not sure what I'd ever need that heavy duty of a bumper hitch for but that was the standard for the F550 I guess.

Screenscape - right?

I'll take one.

Jim, they are screenscapes. My only complaint would be when it rains the pores fill with water and you can't see out very well other than that it's great, blocks more sun that regular tinting.

jbeletti
09-25-2009, 08:59 PM
Jack,

So yours mounts to the outside glass?

Jburks
09-25-2009, 09:01 PM
Yes, that's correct. These things are very durable, it's been over a year and still looks brand new.

Jack.. Who in town done that for you ? I know you told me, but for the life of me can't remember. ( Oldtimers setting in )
Hope you and Debbie are doing good. Don't think we will make it to Branson rally.
Cheers Ken

Count Kathy and I in for one also

Actually, I was thinking of a decal more the size of the plaque to stick on the back or front of the trailer. With mine parked on a seasonal site, I mounted my plaque to a board and hang it off the king pin. The receiver hitch logo is good for when the rig isn't with me.

Jburks

Ken, we had it done at Frog's. He has the design and can do any size. we are doing well, I see you have a new toy to take up any extra time you might have had. There is always hope the you can make Branson.

I really like the look of the logo on your rear window ........ It seems that it would be difficult to see into the cab from the rear .......... I know there are laws as to how dark windows can be tinted, do you know if this is legal and or what percentage of light it blocks ( Think that is what the laws stipulate )

Just curious :o

I wouldn't mind getting a few of those but smaller to put on the side of the big truck. That way if somebody passes me and I am working,they will know the truck.

C'mon you guys! Almost 700 views and only 38 yes votes for the hitch plaque? OK Jim, I'll take two.

jbeletti
09-27-2009, 07:52 AM
Ray makes a good point. I am looking for votes to the poll at the top of this page. If you have said "Yes I want one" in a reply post to this thread but have not voted in the poll, please click on the poll above and vote.

If/when we get close to 100, I will pull the trigger on this. Then I will notify everyone when they are ready to order. And y'all need to follow-up and place your orders :) I also strongly urge you to order other stuff at the same time (hat, shirt, jacket, flag etc.).

Thanks.

Jim

Okey, Jim, you twisted my arm... Put me down for two, to. Just in case I come across some other Heartland owner that just has to have one. I can then sell it to him for $12.00.:D Hey, that is supply and demand working right? So make that two more for me or a total of three.:angel:

Hi Jim, I would also be interested in one of these. Thanks

SilverRhino: Around here the tinting of the side windows seems to be the main concern, I have seen company vehicles with this type of screenscapes as well as mural type pictures in the same type of material and no problems.

Hi JB,

I have taken the plunge and ordered the Domed Hitch Plaques.

Martin Marketing has placed the order for 100 of these. When they arrive, I will post some pictures of the real deal.

Then I will ask the everyone follows through with their order direct with Martin Marketing. By that time, I am hoping to have a flier posted that highlights some of the Club logo'd items that can be purchased from Martin.

The large flags should be in by then too and we are very close to having the screen scapes ordered for the back window of the truck. They're not going to be cheap though. Looks like around $90 US for those ($11/sq ft).

The domed hitch covers are in stock at Martin Marketing. I was waiting to mention is until they got it up on their website - but what the heck.

They turned out AWESOME. See attached images. Contact Martin Marketing to place your orders.

The 3' x 5' flags are also in stock. Consider one of them as well if you have a flag pole :)
