We have to have a front license plate in New Jersey (when are they ever going to catch up to the rest of the country?) so I searched for some answers on how to attach it to our Breakaway, since there are no mounting holes. I would rather stay away from tape or drilling into the bumper if I can. I like the Danny Z's response that he found a fold down step/front license plate holder. I don't know how that attaches or where to get one, but it may be a good way to go. Any ideas?
Thanks, Bruce

Minnesota allso has a front license plate. It is currently in a drawer. It has been years since we have mounted one. However in MN we put them in the windshield just in case and as soon as we leave the state we put it away. This is only on our motor homes. But, we had one car the didn't have a front plate for years. If you don't get stopped for something else you will not have a problem.

...aaahhh yes...

The Minnesota required front license plate.

I'm with Gary... Have not mounted mine yet either ...just keep-it on the dash in case I might need-it.

If you come-up with anything reasonable, please post.

I'm kinda against drilling holes myself, thus, the reason I have done "nothing" in the 2 years I have owned the vehicle.

Thanks for the reply folks. Unfortunately, here in Jersey the Barth has to go thru inspection and I stopped and talked with them today. They will not pass it without the tag attached. Therefore, I did what I really didn't want to do and drilled the front bumper. I drilled it very low and mounted the tag by the bottom holes. Therefore, if I ever get a chance to take it off it won't be as noticable. Oh well, on to other things to learn and fix....like the size of this photo on this site! Can't get back into my profile to edit it.
