I was searching in Amazon for license plate frames for our trailer and came across one that featured LED lights that lit the plate for night driving. I think it used AA batteries. Or... you could just show the officer your own L.E.O. ID and keep on truckin' .

Yea I was thinking about the plate light. But decided to pass for now. I have never heard of anyone being stopped for no license plate light. At least not in N.C. If I ever get stopped for that; I will then add one.

I was once given a ticket because one of two lights were burned out on my plate :-(

Wow, I guess were more laid back in N.C. Was that in Texas?
Maybe I will install one when I return from my trip this week.

I solved the problem on my trailer by using LED License Plate Bolts. Simple taped into the rear lights for the power. You can buy them at most Motorcycle or ATV shops.

Ted those tail lights look like the ones on my Harbor Freight utility trailer. The left (driver's side) one might have a clear section on the bottom designed to illuminate the plate. If you moved the lights up to the top rail; you could position the plate below it, and your problem solved.

Yup. In Texas. In San Antonio. Yet out in the rural areas I routinely hauled horse trailers with no plates at all. Lol

I think it would take a lot to make a fifth wheel sway. I travel with 40 gallons of water at the very back, and it's no different than when empty.

Sway can happen when a trailer is on a pivot point somewhere behind the rear axle. When the pivot point is at or in front of the rear axle, sway isn't really possible. Towing stability is one of the strengths of a Fiver.
