You don't give your DW enough to worry about if the colour of your plates is problem. Mine has never mentioned that yet.

My travel trailer is gold, tan, white, and burgundy.

As a WVU alumni, my Blue and Gold state plates look just fine to me.

Register your Rv here in CA. The sales tax and license fees are high and the state is going broke; anyway you can help would be appreciated.

I like the way you put this question...

For full timers only 4 states love you, TX, NV, SD, and FL,,, all 4 have other issues though..

If you still own property in TX and only part time..

There is,, in fact, only one state your motor home should be licensed in in fact only one state it is legal to license it in, and that is the state that issued your driver's license, the state in which you pay property tax (Assuming you pay property tax) and income tax (Same provision). Your legal state of residence.

You really do not have a choice.

Several states are checking and if a local resident has a motor home with say Montana plates... KNOCK, KNOCK, Treasury, we would like to talk to you.

And if you think talk is cheap.. you never had that kind of "Chat" with a treasury agent (I have had many chats with treasury agents but,,, they were not that kind.. More the "How do you like your coffee" kind).

X 2 You can't see the plate while cruising down the highway

Well, we have decided to paint the Texas plates burgundy. Numbers and background all burgundy. Life is good.

Actually, Mr_D, I was just joking. While I do agree with Peggy about the black on white plates, we have all kinds of real issues to deal with first. Like does the Tequila bottle belong in front of the Vodka bottle, and why does Peggy need all that room for her Wine.

OK, I have an appointment to see my Dr. this morning. Got to go.

I hope you were kidding when you stated that you plan to paint the Texas plates.

Alteration of any kind on any state license plate is prohibited. Depending on what state you live in determines what type of offense it is.

In Texas it is a Class B Misdemeanor.

Maybe you should buy a different coach that matches your license plate.

Steve Jobs Car: Apple CEO Was Said Never to Have License Plates - ABC News

Short of going that far because I think a new rig every six months means you'd always be busy sorting our new-rig problems:

My good friend Don Jesseman has an XK120 and he refused to mount a plate on the front of the car. He just paid the ticket. One cop, one town, every time he got caught.

After Don passed away, his son inherited the property and the car and drove through the same town, same cop, same ticket same response. I told him the story about his dad. The answer? That explains a lot.

Don, at a party for the last time, filmed by some kid that had never sang around a piano before.

Happy New Year to all.

True on the number of plates, but I would stay away from VA. They always find a way to get money from ya... :-)
