Did some research on this topic and found the following from the Texas DPS website:

On September 1,2013, 502.404 requires vehicles registered in Texas to have both a front and rear license plate attached.

Failure to do so is a misdemeanor with a fine of not more than $200.00.

Washington requires a front plate. The folks we bought our GT325 from had always displayed it inside, at the base of the windshield and got away with it for 8 seasons.

Not wanting to give the WSP an additional reason to pull us over, I just drilled two holes in the front cap above the "bumper" and attached it with two CRES bolts, stiff-nuts and washers. Saves a lot of hassle with the authorities, even though it's not quite straight!

Don't have that problem here in NC, but I would drill holes in the front and mount it to save the hassle. Why antagonize law enforcement just to be able to say, "I haven't done it for 30 yrs."?

Have ours inside the front windshield on passengers side. It has been there for 3 years. Works for us. License plate is equipped with a clip to show campground papers if needed in campsites.

I'm in Texas and yes both plates are required. However, we have had MH's since 2000 and none of them had a front license plate mounting facility. So we have never mounted the front plate. We have not had any issues with that approach.

I drilled holes in the front of my '08 Berkshire to mount the plate on the front generator slide out. Not going to do that with my '14 Berkshire though. Going to go the route of having it on the dash in the front windshield.

Thanks for all the advice. We are going to go the route of keeping it in the front windshield for the time being since we are planning to move from Texas to Florida next summer and they only require a back plate.
