Help, I am having troubles with getting my truck Licensed as a toter. I am wanting to haul my Trailer that used to a 4 car trailer. I am in the process of mounting a 24' 5th wheel on the trailer and leaving a deck to haul my Rock Jeep. I want to get truck titled as a RV. It is a 91' FLD 120 with a single axle and sleeper. Any or suggestions would be great..... Thanks in advance. DMV not much help and RCWs very hard to find all needed info.....

I think he's in Washington, topic title. MN requires the truck to have several items associated with rv's. Water, stand alone electrical, heater, ac, toilet, cooking, etc.... You're probably not going to be able to get those things installed in the truck. You should be able to get it a truck license plate tho. When it was used as a truck it probably had an "apportioned" plate. If you're using it as a private truck you can get just a regular truck plate based on the weight. This will be much cheaper than an apportioned plate. More than a rv one tho.

One of the probs I have ran into is that the DMV put the title in a Commercial status. I even told them that I was not going to use it that way. I currently have a 4 car trailer that I am in process of mounting a 25' 5th wheel RV trailer on. This will still leave me room to haul my jeep and dirt bikes. I like this idea better than an enclosed Toy Hauler. One of the things that DMV told me was that I may have to meet the new requirements of the DOT as far getting Interstate numbers. This really sucks.

AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE EXISTING LAW AT THE TIME OF THE TITLE/REGISTRATION THERE IS NOTHING THAT THEY CAN DO BUT ISSUE THE PROPER PAPERWORK....MIGHT TAKE A TRIP TO THE SUPERVISORS OFFICE.....BUT THE LAW IS THE LAW AND DMV CAN'T INTERPRETATE IT AS THEY WANT....DMV LAW IS VERY DETAILED.....geofkaye

I argued with the idiots here in AZ over the same issue MVD agents ha just like future Government run health care agents can't wait!! Luckily here in Az a police officer, ie. any police officer can fill out the neccessary inspection report, the same inspection form as the "high and mighty" mvd agent can do. Check your state regs and see if this applies, Have a reasonable, police officer who understands that you won't be hauling 80k around town do your inspection, leave your rig at home, then take the paperwork to a different mvd office and smile

hello, i am new here. from Bothell,WA. guess i'll have to go to the license to get the answers but i'll ask here to see if anyone knows.
if i would buy volvo wg64t, no sleeper. 153'wb,tandem, i really don't want to put a sleeper on it or buy a truck w/a sleeper. i just want to carry my harly on deck and pull a 5er. ?, can i just tag it as a truck and drive around the usa without being hassaled? i have a 1 ton dually and we have to have comm.plates on it, but not titled as commerical but as a truck or pick-up. i can use my dually and put a reagade lift in the bed and tow a TT, but i want a bigger truck and would rather tow a 5er and put a lift up on the frame deck. any advice. thanks for your help. you guys are building some great rigs on here.
