    LEO Question

    I know there are a lot of present and former LEO's on this forum. Here's my question: I have a large (11'-6") slide-in pick-up camper that fits in the bed of my 1-ton, dually, crew-cab truck. I only use it once a year when we go on vacation. When the camper is mounted on my truck, the overhanging portion obscures the license plate. Now the camper has a mounting place on its rear for a plate, complete with a lite. Many people simply remove the plate from the truck and refasten it to the camper. The problem is, we stop while traveling many times and remove the camper and use the truck to drive around and see the sights. This would necessitate trading the plate many times.
    The fellow who sold me the camper told me many people scan their plate and print out a full-size reproduction and install it on the camper, which incidentally, does not ordinarily need a plate because it has no wheels or drive train and is merely carried like any normal load on the truck.
    What are your thoughts about this? Would I run into legal issues if I were stopped? I can always say, "just crawl under here and you can see the actual plate officer! Oops, watch your head on the sewer clean-out!"

    PM me an address, and I'll mail you a couple of the thumbscrews we use on the car lot to put "D" tags on quickly.
