According to the Texas DOT web site:

`Old' License Plates: If you own license plates that are the same year as the classic vehicle, you have the option of using old plates instead of new Classic specialty plates if the plates pass examination. The old license plates must be examined at your local County Tax Assessor-Collector’s office or a VTR Regional Office before submitting this application. The old license plates must be original plates in good, readable condition and have the same color scheme as the original Texas license plates.

Your passenger car, light truck, motorcycle, or travel trailer must be at least 25 years old.

Robin,This would be great.Do you mean you got vintage plates from Cooke Co. or you supplied your own?I found a set on ebay.The vanity plates are like $500 for 5yrs.from an aftermarket co. endorsed by the state.

I'm looking for some vintage Texas plates. Do they need to say "HOUSE TRAILER" or can the plain ones be used?

vintage plates

I had planned on putting vintage plates on my 345. June 2001 is the last month that Texas will allow plates according to Austin. I tried to get several plates approved but gave up since most of the #s of a 25 year old plate have been reissued. Before you jump in and buy the plates have your selection cleared by Austin

Don't need to say house trailer.They now should say travel trailer,(not 1018trailer as that is 18 wheeler)but they were just "trailer" in 65.They let me use House because I know 3 other guys who have.Numbers do need to be cleared.

Well, I just came back from the Ft. Hood vehicle registration office. The lady there called the Waco regional office and she was told "We have never done that for travel trailers. We can only do cars, trucks and motorcycles." I told her that I know it can and has been done. Can someone point me to the governing regulation?
