It is my understanding that in many (if not all) states obscuring or blocking the view of a license plate is illegal and may get you a ticket.
I photo copied my tag at 100% size, cut it out, put it in a plastic bag and then mounted it to the large cargo box that rides on the carrier with a chrome license plate frame (leaving the original attached to the car). Looks like the real thing. I also put some reflectors around the edges of the box.

This may keep the obstructed plate from being noticed, but could cause more trouble if it actually is, depending on the mood of the officer involved.

Here is an option to consider for water-proof luggage. These are designed for equipment storage to keep the stuff inside dry. There is an o-ring seal on the cover and the snaps pull the cover very tight. I use these on some of my portable service equipment to keep them safe and dry when in the field. https://www.digikey.com/products/en/boxes-enclosures-racks/boxes/594?k=serpac&k=&pkeyword=serpac&sv=1&pv46=19115&pv46=18766&sf=0&FV=ffe00252,c140008&quantity=&ColumnSort=0&page=1&pageSize=25
And they are rated IP67 (Ingress Protection Rating) https://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+ip67+mean&rlz=1C1GCEA_enUS849US849&oq=what+is+IP67+mean&aqs=chrome.0.0l4.3823j1j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
There are a lot of different brands out there as with sizes. https://www.digikey.com/products/en/boxes-enclosures-racks/boxes/594?k=serpac&k=&pkeyword=serpac&sv=1&pv773=8&sf=0&FV=ffe00252&quantity=&ColumnSort=0&page=1&pageSize=25
Hope this helps.
