hi, I just bought a new 2019 camper, graywolf 20rdse, and I noticed that the license plate mount under the tail light is on the passenger side.
I have looked up other graywolf campers and they are on the left or the right, so what side is it suppose to be on, the ones I had in the past were on the drivers side, so does it mater ?

Yes. Plastic tap for mounting the license broke one time and I lost the plate. Second time one tab broke and license was dangling on the other. I used two hose clamps and mounted it to the ladder. I do not have a light shining on it at night but I never drive at night.

The side does not matter. As RK said it has to be clearly visible.
Right. left, center. low high.. Does not matter (well not too high)
SO long as a cop 500 feet behind you can read the plate. IT has to be LIT at night. so many tail lights have a clear "Window" in the bottom of the assembly and a license plate mount under the window. Others will have a light dedicated to the plate (My RV does)

Had a ton of fun last summer.. Blew a few fuses. one was that lamp. (And others on the circuit).
Home was where I park it. but alas the.

Mine is on the right side. The ladder is on the left side. Never a problem in 15 years.:)

Doesn't matter where it is. Must be mounted horizontally on the rear of the vehicle and lit when it is dark. The plates are read automatically by a trailing police vehicle and the scanner will find it, wherever it is.

I would visit multiple dealers in multiple states to check real life locations. As I'm sure that you are aware ad agencies often reverse pics as the ad layout requires for best presentation negating your research on the matter.

The plate mounting tabs are usually molded into the base of the light fixture itself, which is the cheapest obtainable, and at some point will probably break off given enough time. What side it is on depends on who installed it more than what side the manufacturer intended for it to be installed. Isaiah Yoder may have put them on the right on Tuesday, but Levi Beiler may have slapped them on the left on Wednesday. Typically the light is just part of the cover / lens and interchangeable between the two.
Too many geezers, self appointed moderators, experts, and disappearing posts for me. Enjoy. How many times can the same thing be rehashed over and over?

If it really bothers you, google your state vehicle code. It has details on what is required.

But 99.9999% chance it's fine, it's legal and no one will ever question it.

The plate goes under whichever taillight has the license plate light shining out from it. If they both do and both offer an unobstructed view of the plate, I don't think it really matters which side it goes on...but I believe typically only one trailer taillight is equipped with the plate light.
