Do a search. There are exhaustive discussions about this non-issue.

I leave my real license on the truck & have a laminated copy from Staples that I put on the TC. NO issues in 2 1/2 years in the Western states… Many also do same…

Legally you must put the plate on the TC so it is visible from behind. Does your TC not have a place for a plate? It should also be lit at night.
In real life it all depends on the officer.

I once didnt bother swapping the place and left it on truck, hidden. I got a warning parking ticket and he crawled under the TC to read the plate. No issues I guess that the plate was hidden away. Maybe if I was there he would give me a hard time and make me move it but RVers are typically not high crime suspects the cops need to harass....

It depends on the state. It varies from state to state.


My new license plate for my TC.

I've had two TC and never had a plate on either one and the one on the truck is not visible from behind.

That’s a good way to make a police or parking officer mad.

Half the time I leave the plate on the truck, the other half on the camper. If I'm on a long haul for months I'll stick it on the camper. For short trips I usually leave it on the truck. The good news is, either way the plate is pretty easily visible from behind because the Igloo sits high enough to allow you to see it on the truck.

Did you see him crawl? Or maybe since it was parked, he read the one on the front of the truck.

We've been traveling USA for almost twenty years. Always have plate on truck. Never been stopped, asked, or gotten a ticket. It's not readable when TC is on truck unless you bend and look under TC.

One time, in Texas I ran out of gas on the road. State trooper stopped, gave me a ride to the gas station - about five miles - and asked me 'Is there a plate on your truck under that camper.' I told him yes, he never looked, just hauled me to gas station. Gas station guy drove me and a gas can back to my truck.

Georgia does not have front plates. Only high tax states do.
