The other thought is you're going to still need to see it at night. Add a lightbox to each side, or those 4" single post turnsignal/marker lights.

That's exactly what I was thinking...  If I don't work out an 8.5' trailer, I'll run a square tube across the top-back of the trailer and add the 4" box lights on the ends of it.  

Might not be pretty, but it will be functional and safe.

Jeff,

What if you just made an extension on the back of the trailer.  Like if you mounted a piece of pipe horizontally at the top rear corner of your trailer that was ten inches long and painted it flourescent orange.  If you put one on each side they would stick out one inch further than your motorhome and at least give you a reference as to where the back of the trailer is.

Scott, that's basically what I'm considering.  Except I'm looking at hanging a light from it so it would be useful at night.  Again, that's if I don't work something out with a wider trailer.

I know a lot of people pay no attention to some of this with an RV but seems like you need an overwidth permit past 8'
