As a new member of the FMCA, I just received my welcome package in the mail yesterday. It includes the plate with your membership number for you to attach or place on the RV. I know I can drill two holes and attach the plate, but I really hate to think of putting holes in exterior. Has anyone used a different method to secure their plate to the motor coach? I'm hoping to find an idea where no holes will be required, and will not damage the full paint if it has to be removed at a later date. Thank you.

The rear one is tie wrapped to the ladder.

For the front, I had license plate mounting holes, but there was a recess that didn't allow the plate to be mounted. I bought some 1 inch wide by 1/8 inch thick aluminum bar from Lowes (Home Depot has aluminum bar, also) which I bent to make 2 mounting brackets. A vice and a hammer will allow you to easily bend the bar to any shape needed to set out the plate. These brackets were bolted to the license plate holes and two holes I drilled from the underside. Later if this mount is removed, the holes will not show. I do not have a picture. Each coach would probably be different anyway.

On the front, there were no holes at all, not even for a license plate, which I need, here in BC. So I had to drill for the license plate. I also drilled for the FMCA plate, as I tried the inside mount and rejected it. There was a blemish in the Stainless strip that crosses and dresses up the front on my Contessa, so I covered it with the FMCA plate. Saved having to buy or repair the stainless too.

I took my 'Egg' to a sign shop and for $20 they made me two exact copies in vinyl, one on the windshield and one on the back of the coach up high. Works for me.
I really like this idea. Sounds like it should be an option when you join.
