Bounder front tag installation

I have a new 35K bounder and need to add a front tag in Texas. I am considering drilling front area and either using a small bolt and locknut or plastic wall screw insert to install it. What have others done and what is best way to add this tag.

I first read this post and was wondering how and why you would want a front tag axle then I read more and discovered you need a 'license plate'

Buy a license plate holder/frame from virtually any auto parts store and bolt it to the front end of your coach. I've seen people use velcro but eventually you run the risk of it vibrating enough that it falls. If you're worried about scratching the paint then use rubber or nylon washers between the license plate holder and the body of the coach

Not sure what your front looks like, but for mine, plastic wire ties worked great.

mine is just screwed into the bumper with #14 stainless screws... previous owner had done it... I upgraded his sheetmetal screws which were rusting to the stainless... I also added 2 extra screws on the bottom of the license plate... quick predrill and screwed it in.

Without seeing the front end of the OPs coach, I'd have to agree with the double sided tape idea. Drilling holes, for IMPORTANT and legal items such as license plates, is well, sometimes needed to be done. In many states, it has to be there. But, how it's mounted may be up to the owner of the vehicle. My thought is, if the plate has to be there in the first place, then a couple of holes isn't gonna hurt anything. But, it it bothers one to drill the holes, then some 3M double sided tape will more than likely do the job.

License plates are often stolen.

If I'm the guy stealing them, zip ties and taped on plates would be the ones I want.

Small screws, lock nuts and fender washers would my choice.
