Rivet Florida Plates ...

streamer23,

The Florida plates actually had an 'MH' & 'RV' designation.

If interested, go here:

http://www.pl8.com/pl8man/codes/

The first number was the county in the state, numericaly in order of the highest population (lowest number).

Mike, that is correct, if it were an actual travel trailer tag with the correct weight class for our Overlander, it would read something like "42MH-xxxx". A 1963 auto tag in good shape is tough enough to find, locating a tag for a 1963 travel trailer, with the correct weight designation, would be like winning the state lottery, while being struck by lightning, during an earthquake.
I'll take what I can get, and if I find the correct one, I can change it then.
BTW, if you know how to read them, the car tags would tell you the same thing about the car, even down to the county it was registered. IIRC, the first two digits were the county and weight. I lived in Pinellas county for a very long time, so the "4" for Pinellas county is good for me. The "ww" for a vehicle over 4500 pounds is also good, even though it is a trailer, and not a car.

What you have looks great and thanks for the extra info.Maybe someday when you least expect it you will find the ONE.Good luck to you.

Pwrstrk 4 Hi Cmp

It would be no fun not to have vanity plates, as Silvertwinky wouldn't recognize me on the roads of the 'burbs otherwise.

Our Excursion is IL plate PWRSTRK (that's Powerstroke, people, not Powerstruck)... and Lucy wears the tag 4 HI CMP as trailer plats in IL must start with a number.

I'll take photos this weekend and mount them.


Tom, and Frank


n.b. I TOW AIR: someone in Wisconsin has that plate too... it's my favorite plate, I think.

No vanity plates for trailers in PA but look to our Avatar on your left for our tow vehicle plate.

Anybody out there have an old "Texas Trailer" plate from 1958? I would like to have it so I can register my Trailer with it, as Texas lets you do that. Of course I would pay for it as well as shiping charges. Thanx.

Vintage plate

I scored a vintage plate correct to the year of my Caravel for Oregon from Ebay. Here is a picture of it.

Since the CCD is registered in Oregon, I sent in a long list of custom possibilities that included a dozen (or so) variations of 'toaster' but wound up getting "RIVETS" which suits me fine. It was taken previously but I guess the registration ran out and the PO didn't renew. You can be sure that I won't let that happen .

I have vanity plates on the Expy (initials and house number) and on the AS same as we chose for the SOB. Makes it easy for me to remember when they want your info at the campgrounds.

Too bad "Round-about Widowmaker" is too long for a vanity plate, Carol.
