Fines for backdating
This certificate is used just like a title if you ever decide to sell your truck camper sometime in the future, so don’t lose it.
Note: The requirement to register a truck camper only applies to residents of those states.
You’ll need to pay a sales tax for your camper as well.
Why these states require slide-in truck campers to be registered isn’t a big mystery. Some cash-strapped states will look for any way to generate income. It makes sense to register motorhomes, fifth-wheels, and travel trailers because they have axles, wheels, and tires, but not the truck camper. Indeed, most truck campers don’t even have a vehicle identification number (VIN) like other types of RVs.
Because of this, and the fact they don’t have an axle, the truck camper really should be considered cargo.
What proof do you have that you own a truck camper in those states that have no title requirement? Every slide-in truck camper manufacturer will create a Certificate of Origin when they build a truck camper.
