Travel trailers cost more to keep on the road than utility trailers

Why. Dear Honorable: I received my registration renewal for over $500 for a travel trailer I bought last year. While utility trailers have permanent plates, often used but not charged much, travel trailers are billed annually based on their value, even if they are only on the road a few times a year. The upgrade also says that the non-op option is not available. What does the Department of Motor Vehicles have against travel trailer owners?

A. Hawn enjoys watching trailers when he’s out for a long spin on the freeway, Dawn, but he knows very little about them, so he heads to the DMV.

“Utility trailers and other trailers not designed for human habitation are registered under the Permanent Trailer Identification Program and are not subject to annual registration,” the spokesperson Angelica Martinez In an email told to Hon. “A flat fee of $10 is payable every five years.

“The registration fee for travel trailers is based on the same factors as for a regular automobile,” she said. “Similar to vehicles, trailers are classified by body type. A travel trailer, or trailer coach, would be classified as a coach trailer, because it is designed for human habitation, and the annual registration is subjected to.”

A non-op – officially called a “planned non-operation” – means that the owner will not touch a public road for the entire year, which includes registration. For most vehicles, if not all, it costs much less than annual registration.

“Travel trailers are excluded from the planned non-operational schedule,” she said. “Since these trailers are designed for human habitation, their mere presence in the state constitutes use/operation.”
