I've seen other people put 3 red lights above the rear name plate and 3 amber lights above the front name plate. Do I need both sets or is the rear set the only one required? Thanks for the help.
Trailer lights and reflectors are covered by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 108. The edition of FMVSS 108 that was in effect in 1963
when the trailer was built is what your trailer has to comply with, even if requirements were made more stringent in later editions. Changes to the Federal requirements are never
So if your trailer wasn't made with them in '63, they're not required today, either.
