The “all out” effort mounted by the Recreational Park Trailer Industry Association Inc. (RPTIA) to change Nevada’s law to provide for the sale and titling of recreational park trailers has been successful, according to the Newnan, Ga.-based association.
The newly enacted law will become effective on Oct. 1.
The new law makes it clear that recreational park trailers are a legal entity. In addition, it stipulates that that RV trailers can be no larger than eight feet in width or 320 square feet in total area and that any unit that exceeds 320 square feet is a manufactured home and is required to display a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) label.
“Recreational park trailers simply did not exist in Nevada,” the association newsletter states. The new law defines recreational park trailers as recreation vehicles that are designed and intended for seasonal and recreational use. The new law also stipulates that all recreational park trailers sold in Nevada must be built in compliance with the ANSI A119.5 Standard.
