Texas Front License Plate

My plates came in today - here in Texas we have front, rear and window sticker. My question is that I don't have a mount for my XL 350TS and curious what others have done as far putting a front plate on(or not)?

Thanks in advance.

DO not have one, but I have seen a few MoHos put them in the front windshield for those that require the front plates. Or add a mount they can be had at Walmart or any other auto parts store.

But it is such a beautiful coach up there - I will see what I can find - there are no holes/pre-drill to mount to which is a concern too.

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah, I hear that but I do not know how serious they are about wanting that front plate.. They may or may not "care." The mount can be small and predrilled. With a nice frame and plate installed it will only look bad because of the plate even being there. I agree.. No plate looks better but, I DUNNO!

Our tv's have always been registered in ohio (we live in Mi) and since around 1970 I have never put the front plate on any of them,mostly because there isnt a place for since they all have had plow hooks and winches on the front.Almost all the lower 48,mexico and canada, nobodys ever said nuttin.Hell, I dont even know Where the front plate is now!

Ha... we are planning to full-time later this year and trying to decide between TX and FL for our state of residency. This thread just put another check mark in the "pro" column for FL for me, as they don't require front plates!

Here in Colorado front plates are required and I've received a warning from the local popo as a result of not displaying it. They do enforce it here...

Don't know about Texas but a vehicle registered in Virginia not having a front tag will buy you a ticket......fast .......front window will not work (that's another ticket) ....... don't ask me how I know this.

Texas Front License Plate

Two are required in NY as well but I haven't figured out how I'm going to mount the front plate. I saw a pic of one using butterfly type toggle bolts through the mesh portion on the front. No drilling required.
