How do you have your WIC license plate attached?

Iím interested in how others attach WIC, FMCA plates to your MH. Pictures would be great.

Thanks,

Patrick

I have both my WIT and FMCA plates mounted on the rear ladder. I used the FMCA mounts for the Oval and after trying to make brackets for the WIT tag I ended up with black wire ties. Doesn't look bad. My coach is at a storage area. I will try to swing by and grab a photo. FMCA Brackets are available here https://www.kileymold.com/products.html

I used the Kiley mold for mine as well. I modified the WIT plate to fit the brackets. Not sure I like it there, but will try it.

Thanks, I might attached them to my ladder off to the side via an aluminum flat bar and U bolts.

Iím with you, I donít know if I would like them there also. I have the rear FMCA one attached to the ladder via wire ties. Kinda in the way climbing the ladder.

Maybe some aluminum flat stock and U bolts extending out to the side of ladder will be my route.

Thanks

The kileymolds set them back away from the ladder so they don't interfere much with using the ladder, but not sure I like the WIT plate up there with my paint scheme.

Hi,

I don't have a picture but I went to Lowes and bought some flat stock aluminum( about 11/2" wide and long enough to go past the ladder the distance of the fmca plate) and 2 small "u" bolts that fit ladder. I drilled the holes so that the FMCA plate would stick out on the right side of the ladder and then marked and drilled the u bolt holes. Before mounting I spray painted it black including the u bolts. I mounted it on the ladder so that the flat stock was up against the bottom of the second step from the top and made sure it did not cover the third brake light.

It turned out real nice. As for the WIT plate I mounted that below the grille but had to mount it with washers for shims as the front bumper is curved. We don't need a front license plate in NC.

Good Luck!

I think you are right. I just tried to order some suction cups from them to hang the plate in the windshield and I can't find the website anymore.

I ended up getting some of the suction cups from FMCA.

I used 2 heavy duty 2" wide Velcro strips with adhesive on each FMCA plate. One plate centered above the license on the front and the other just below the ladder on the back.

Sorry if this is a bit late, i attached the plate between the ladder braces using
one of the braces screws on each side.

With a hole saw, I drilled 1 1/4" holes in the upper left and right of the plate.
This made a "semicircle" cut in the plate. This allowed the plate to fit between
the ladder coach braces.

I then placed the plate painted side to the coach between the braces and
tapped lightly with a hammer to get the braces screws to mark the drill
location. Drilled 3/16" holes for the screws and cleaned up the cuts with a file.

I placed small rubber pads on the back of the plate to prevent scratches.

I removed the lower inside screws on each brace and attached the plate using
the same screws. 45 min job.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the input. Nice looking job! I finally decided on double sided tape and slapped my plates right on the MH just above my state license plate. I know that I can pull the plates off by working dental floss behind the tape. Easy.
