RV & Motorhome Registration in KentuckyIn Kentucky, the registration process for your RV or motor home is almost the same as the registration process for any other motor vehicle. Visit our Car Registration and Title Transfers pages for detailed registration and titling steps.
In short, registering your RV or motor home will consist of paying your dealer at the time of purchase and letting him or her handle all registration and titling paperwork.
Or, if you purchased your RV or motor home from an individual, you'll need to visit your County Clerk's office and take the completed Application for Kentucky Certificate of Title/Registration (Form TC 96-182) as well as all applicable usage fees.
If your RV or motor home was purchased out-of-state, you'll need to have it inspected by the sheriff just as you would any other out-of-state vehicle.
You'll renew your RV or motor home registration the same way you renew the registration of any other motor vehicle, and vehicle property taxes are paid at the time of renewal.
Aside from anything you pull behind your vehicle, RVs and motor homes with motors have the same insurance requirements as any other motor vehicle in Kentucky. Your registration could be suspended if you fail to show proof of insurance.
Make sure to keep your proof of insurance and your registration information in your RV or motor home at all times.
