Tag / License plate frame for front

I own a 2001 National Caribbean that I purchased in November. My plates just showed up from the state.

I bought my Caribbean from a state that does not require a front plate. In Illinois, a front plate is required. My RV has no frame or mounting bracket for my front plate. Can anyone give me suggestions or show me how their front plates are mounted?

I'm wondering if I should just drill through the fiberglass front end cap and reinforce with some metal behind it, or attach a bracket to the bottom end of the cap where I believe a strip of metal runs along the bottom. I think that might hang to low though.

I bought my Tradewinds in a state that required 2 but hee in GA only on the rear.The previous owner jsut drilled holes in the fiberglass and put a frame around the tag with some flat washers on the inside. I took the tag out and just fastened the frame back on til I decide what to put there.

This may not be so timely... but I drilled holes in the front "bumper" and then inserted the tag into a plastic cover. The first hole I drilled was undersized and wasn't pretty when I used the screw - self tapping. SO.. be sure to give yourself a good fit...
