FMCA Plate

We joined FMCA and received a number "plate" (? what would you call it). Do folks mount these by using screws? Self tapping? Where?

You can mount it on the front where a license plate would go. Auto parts store would have mounting screws. Many place it on the rear ladder (if you have one). You can order a ladder mount from FMCA that doesn't interfere with climbing ladder. That's where I have mine.

Not in place of a front plate in some states like WA. You're required to have a front plate here, but lots of cars out there with no front plates. Police can't stop you for no front plate here but can cite you as secondary to any other stop.
Last rig I mounted the front with the Kiley Mold mounts that used double sided tape and the rear was mounted with stainless hardware to the ladder. New rig has such nice looking paint and 3M mask I haven't decided, Rear is even more of a problem since we don't have a ladder. Probably going to get another mount from Kiley.

Like others have done, I mounted mine on the ladder, with the kit I got from Kiley.

We mounted one on the ladder at the rear with the mounting kit that FMCA sells - we actually bought the kit at a rally. The front one is just placed in the windshield...

Right now that's the way our FMCA and Good Sam plates are although I did use suction cups to hold them in place.

I use a piece of 2" aluminum bar 1/8" thick and a couple of "U" clamps to mount the egg off to the side of the ladder.
