I went with these decals in a complementary color to where they were installed and they look great.  I did not use the Not for Hire part, just the Private Coach part.

Buy a Liberty. You get the cast aluminum, color matched "private coach" emblems for free with each purchase. Is that a deal or what?

Story about "Private Coach". We had our first coach and it had the cast aluminum plaques clearly visible. We had recently gotten screwed over by NY thruway toll booth folks who classed us as a commercial bus which cost a lot more money when we paid the tolls so I was a little touchy. We were going through the tolls in NH on I-95 about 20 years ago and the toll booth lady asked us for an amount equal to what a commercial bus would pay. I told her we were a motorhome and not a commercial vehicle. Her response was that she did not care, we were clearly a bus according to her. I pointed out the plaque. To her it didn't mean a thing.

I asked her to step out of the booth and look at the license plates (NY) and they were clearly the same as a car would have. She refused and said we were a bus.

I pulled up the emergency brake and told her I was going back to the living room to read a book until she decided we were not a commercial bus. To her the plaque was nothing more than decoration, in her mind a bus is a bus and she was determined we were to pay the higher rate. Her supervisor apparently agreed with us and told her to charge us the motorhome rate. After taking our money she told me next time we had to pay the bus rate. So much for a plaque.

As far as I could see in the mirrors I saw cars and trucks backed up. All that for less than a dollar difference.

And I thought it was the Private Coach plaque that made a Liberty so expensive...
