If sold “merch,” what would you be most interested in?

Hypothetically speaking, if we were to start selling “merch” (gear with our logo or something, what would you be most interested in seeing or buying?

Would you just love to have your very own mug? Or T-shirt? What about a tote bag for your groceries or gear? Would you put an bumper sticker on your RV or tow vehicle?

Please note: You can select up to TWO answers, so pick your top two choices. And if you choose “other,” please leave a comment and tell us what that would be. We’re listening…

Other: none of the above, I don’t see why I would want RVTravel ‘Merch’.

There was no “none of the above” option.

Short and long sleeved t-shirts, with an understated (classy) logo. Ask your subscribers to submit images as a competition then make it a voting event….generates interest among your readers.

I’m already contributing monthly to minimize ads and that doesn’t seem to be doing much good. If ads offering your branded merchandise start showing up I’ll spend my donation dollars elsewhere.

It is my opinion all the items listed in the questionnaire should be marketed. And many consider RV bed spreads, towels, hand towels, wash cloths set. Door mats bathroom floor rugs. Runner rugs. Dish and cup sets. Wine glasses. Bumper stickers. Tire covers. Cutting boards spatulas. Pencils, pens note pads. Make a few and use the revenue to start up others.

Thank you Chuck for my RVTravel mug… love it! I like the suggestion from MrDisaster for window clings. I wouldn’t use bumper stickers because my bumper has ridges so nothing will stick but I would put a static cling on my window. And I would advertise RVT on a sweatshirt! I like your logo in black and white.

A ball cap or window cling. I have enough clothing and coffee cups.

I don’t think the comments went the way the author expected. Lol.

How about something more useful and very visible like a sturdy table cloth for picnic tables??

I don’t buy “Branded” stuff. You want me to advertise for you, pay me.

Wow!, Richard. I have been saying that for decades. Equipment manufactures used to give away caps at fairs, etc. Everyone gave away free yardsticks and even umbrellas and of course bumper stickers – every attraction would put one on your bumper without asking and you would have to figure out how to get it off (way before googone). Once someone evidently asked to buy one – they found another profit center. RVT, no disrespect, it seems to have become an accepted practice and I guess most people enjoy it. Go for it.

I don’t wear baseball caps, refuse to clutter vehicles with stickers, have dozens of coffee cups that take up cupboard space but never get used, and have a stack of unused totes. That narrowed the selection quickly for me. I actually prefer hoodies.

The poll didn’t show but by reading the comments I get the picture.
I have always liked your logo and quick poll of the two couples we are caravaning with agree. We range in age from early 50s to early 70s.
As I’ve been requesting for a few years .. How about a 4″x4″ bumper sticker and/or a window decal. If you could add a little color, great!
A good way to start a conversation with people passing by where we can discuss and “sell” the many merits of RV Travel newsletters.

I only buy stuff that can be worn for that reason.

My head must be misshappen or my tolerance for baseball caps that slip down my forehead and intrude on my field of vision must be much lower than that of my peers. Either way, I detest the things and wear them only to shield my eyes from falling precipitation (Is that redundant? Can precipitation rise? Guess not. Please strike “falling” from my explanation. Thank you!). PS, I love the logo!

I’m sorry, I’ve never liked your logo. I wouldn’t buy anything with it.

I think you missed an opportunity to assess the percentage of people that don’t buy branded merchandise at all by not having that as a choice in the poll.

I never purchase branded “trinkets” or clothing. Brand symbols mean absolutely nothing to me.

That said, I have purchased T-shirts or sweatshirts or coffee mugs (usually “The Mountain” apparel products for best quality) that have wildlife scenes on them with “Black Hills” or “Yellowstone National Park” etc. in small print somewhere on the item (sleeve, pocket, etc.) So perhaps a really nice color outdoor picture with a simple “” might be more attractive.

T shirt with a pocket for my reading glasses.
