Camp Trailer 1958-
Click to see this type in useCamp Trailer plates are issued for use on privately-owned trailers. While they are certainly used on camping trailers, they are also used on pretty much any light-duty non-commercial trailer - including boat trailers.

This type started in 1924, with plates similar to regular commercial plates except for a 'B-' prefix. This continued until 1932 when "Camp Tr." was spelled out for the first time, and the 'B-' was dropped.

There were various design iterations throughout the years. The numbering format remained all-numeric from when the 'B-' prefix was dropped through mid-2015. Presently Camp Tr. plates are issued in the "omni-format" AA-12345 format, shared with passenger car, commercial, and pretty much every other type of plates.

Camp Trailer plates are also available as vanities, as well as a number of the special-interest types. These use a stacked 'CPTR' in the serial to designate the type.
