I was born there. No sweat if you are Later Day. You can run ATVs anywhere, burn down the Dewey Bridge and push over rocks in Goblin Valley without any concern. An extra license plate should be no issue.


Mormons and lawlessness.

NY seems like a great alternative. [emoticon]

Actually, I'll role with that ^^^^

They won't. No different than they're not going to track down and waste time on family vacationing in TC with no plate/can't see the plate/etc, on the truck.

The things people fret about. Now, if you're rolling down the road in a 30yoa rot infested TC hanging off a beat up p/u, looking the part of a meth head, yea, I'd worry. It's as useful of a stop as a broken tail light. It's called a fishing expedition. They work, they're great tools, and you want the cops to work them.

Seriously, comical thread.

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....


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


Georgia only has a rear tag, if Mr Andy was a GA resident at the time. No front tag in GA

no plate visible for a ticket, they just run the VIN in the corner of the windshield on the dash. dispatch gives them the plate number and you get the ticket. Takes less than a minute even if you are out of state.

You know I could almost agree with you if you had gone to your county tax office and asked for a duplicate plate. But getting one from Amazon, or wherever, just cut the state out of whatever fee they would charge.
May not matter in NY but a cop trying to keep the city budget balanced in Intercourse Pennsylvania, who knows.

My truck has a front plate. It matches the one on the back of the truck. [emoticon]

You can't cry "money grab" out one side of your mouth and then say that they're not going to pull you over for a fake license plate or an obscured license plate out the other.

If they are out to get you for "money grab" purposes, they are out to get you for ANY infraction.

We've had plenty of first-hand accounts of TCers being hassled about their license plates here on this forum.

Never said anything about money. Has nothing to do with money. Seriously, if Barney Fife from podunk somewhere is trying to fill the coffers for the tiny muni he's working for, I guess you're screwed. License plate light, incorrectly aimed headlights, 2 mph over, straddled the white line and you don't have a litter bag. Should of stayed home.

Despite all the world wanting to believe the police are tax collectors/have quotas, etc etc, it just isn't true. Police find criminals more often than you'll ever know, via fishing expeditions. Starts with little stuff, like Traffic violations and Terry stops. And I've been reading these forums for a couple of weeks now, and it doesn't take two hands to count how many have actually been 'hassled' because of this plate issue. Fact, I don't remember any, but in fairness, I don't read everything.

Part of that 1/4% group, but then, what do I know.

For the amount of time it takes to transfer the plate from truck to camper it’s worth it to avoid any situations. Just remember to move it before loading the camper so you don’t have to crawl underneath. Did that more than once.
