Hold down the Alt key and while holding it down, type 164 on the NUMERIC keyboard. Yes, you must use the numeric section of the keyboard and not the numbers at the top. Turn on NUM LOCK if you need to.

It's part of the Extended ASCII character set: https://theasciicode.com.ar/

And on a mobile device keyboard, just hold your finger down on the letter to bring up all the options for it.

I've always wondered about something. If your dually truck has six wheels, wouldn't your camper be a seventh wheel?

I had a 2003 white Chevy Astro van.... kept her for 17 yrs. She had 240,000 miles on her when we sold her. My husband got a customer made plate for the front....her name was.....Van-A-White..... never thought to name our fifth wheel . My new(2015 SUV) is white too...I want to name her SUV-ANNA....no place to put a plate on the front of this one though.

You would never be able to register it in NJ. Front plate required! There's gotta be a way to put a plate on.

Look at a 2015 Buick Enclave and see if you can see a place. Yeah I heard there were still states that requires 2..... But I don't know how many cars are still made that way

A lot of cars sold in states that don't require a front plate never get the front plate bracket installed by the dealer. In many cases, doing so requires drilling holes in the front bumper cover.

In Washington, front plates are required, but there is a slightly ambiguous section in the law that states that "exceptions may be granted if body construction of the vehicle makes compliance impossible"

My dealer never installed the front plate holder on my Mustang, and the car didn't have one in the trunk when it was delivered, and there are no markings on the bumper cover to show where one goes, So I don't have a front plate on my car. I have been pulled over one time in the 6 years that I had the car, and I showed the trooper that I had the front plate in the car with me, but there was nowhere to mount it. She looked at the plate and at the front bumper and let me go.

Like this one? Every car manufactured for sale in the USA has a method for attaching a front license plate. Sometimes (as is apparently the case here), that requires that the dealer mount a license plate bracket by drilling through the bumper cover to gain access to the mounting bolt holes/nuts that are embedded in the bumper itself. On this particular car it looks like it is held on with screws and pop rivets: https://www.gmpartsnow.com/oem-parts...8aAi6iEALw_wcB

Exctly ... plates required front and rear here too. Every car is capable of having both front and rear plates installed -- simply get the plate holder from the dealership...or salvage yard and have them install it if unable to do so yourself.

Manufacturers really need to do a better job making plate mounts that don't require drilling. My Corvette came with a front plate holder that mounts without drilling.

Vehicles I've seen without a front plate mount have small plugs to be removed and then the plate can be mounted for the license plate.

Our last Rockwood camper was called Rocky. Since our Shamrock still has "Rock" in the name, it became Rocky II. My TV being a Ram, of course it had to be Rambo. Got the whole Stallone thing going, you know! Neither of us are big fans or anything, it just worked out that way and sometimes these things just name themselves!!

Gypsy Jelliefish

After much discussion, settled on a name for our new 2021 Forest River "Salem" FSX 177BH


"Gypsy Jelliefish"


Jellie combines our two grand-kids names: Jeb & Ellie


Gypsy came naturally.


Fish was added to reference Jellyfish.
