G'day Sue & Alan,

For the Do Not Overtake Turning Vehicle sign (300 x 100), which can be mounted above your left tail light assembly, the best place to get them is at a truck spare parts place. About $12, but I've seen the same sign at sign suppliers (The people who supply OH&S signs and Equipment to Industry), for as much as $43 !!

There was someone who manufactured UHF 18 signs for caravanners. I do not use 18, and the Lettering was only readable from about 20metres, which meant the observer would have to be tailgating to read it. I got some off-cuts of Class 1 retro-reflective vinyl from a sign manufacturer, and cut out my own "40" in 200mm high characters and 30mm wide stroke. ( I could send you a template if you wish).

You could add a CH or UHF in smaller letters if you wish. If you have 40 the truckies will know you use 29 on the Pacific Highway so no need for that to be displayed.

I don't really know why I chose Class 1 retro, as when it gets dark, we are always off the road, camped somewhere.....with the UHF switched off!!

I think I posted details of Australian Standard & regulations regarding usage and mounting of the "Do Not Overtake..." signs on the back of vehicles, some time back. I'll drop the document into the File Swap.

Cheers.............Rob

Hi Sue

First time i purchased stick on numbers from a boating shop, as they were flexible to suit the van surface, whereas 'letterbox' type stickers were made for a flat surface. When these eventually came off, my daughter painted them on. There is a member of the caravanersforum.com who makes custom stickers for vans (Lance).

So MH - you are not lysdexic! :-)
Or are you like me - ambidextrous (can stuff up any thing equally as well with either hand).
I always blame my lysdexic little left finger for all my computer errors and thus the work place IT folks take it easy on me! :-)
Cheers - Ian of Ian & Sally
