Or even dark of night could keep us from finding funny and oddball mailboxes as we traveled the country in our motorhome, and we’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. I posted a blog with some of our favorites a couple of years ago that was well received, and ever since, readers have been sending us pictures of mailboxes they spot in their travels. Here are some favorites.

Fish seem to be popular for custom mailboxes and we have seen a lot of them all over the country.
