just for education purposes. There are people that I know here in the SF Bay area that have been pulled over and cited for obstructed lic plates in their cars. The obstruction? A hitch mounted bicycle rack that did not have a bicycle in it. Kind of why every hitch mounted Wheelchair carrier comes with a Lic Plate frame with a plate light.

Oh and they now charge you a not cheap administrative fee to process that fix it ticket.

Plate is on my TC for that reason


My experience was not with a TC; I had a pickup set up with snowplow, but registered to be legal pulling a Bobcat. 1 of my hands wrecked his car, so he was using that pickup to drive home across the state line. Now it would be illegal to haul a load intra-state on that side of line, driver and truck where legal for what he was doing (Proven in court) Over the course of about a month he was stopped 6 times. 2 warnings, 3 tickets and 1 arrest and vehicle impounded. (Second time stopped on the same day, my driver tried to educate the cop)

I'll bet it's pretty rare for any of us Truck Camper folks to get pulled over, it's not like we are sports cars or a beater with a heater with expired tags.


I have seen some pretty ragged PU/TC units. And I bet if some LEOs learn out of state owners will just pay the fine more will get stopped.

I want to thank everyone for their answers. I started this thread hoping to hear from someone in my state but didn't, for the people in the western states this was a good topic. I made up my mind and keeping the plate on the truck. I have a hitch on the truck I thought maybe I should run a extension with the plate welded on it. Maybe the LEO'S would find something wrong with that. THANKS again.

I have noticed one added benefit lately from leaving plate on truck. The toll roads that take a picture and send you a bill for driving on their toll roads, they never have come.
