RV & Motorhome Registration in Texas
Like many states, in Texas the registration process for recreational vehicles (RVs) follows about the same path as registering any vehicle. RVs that are driven under their own power (not designed to be towed by another vehicle) are registered like passenger cars and trucks.
As with other vehicles in Texas, for a first-time registration you will need to go to your local County Tax Assessor-Collectors office with proof of ownership (usually the title), proof of safety inspection, your vehicle identification number (VIN), and proof of insurance.
Individual fees vary depending on what county you reside in, as different counties have added various small fees to the basic state registration cost. The Schedule of Texas Registration Fees can help you to predict what your fee will be.
For towed trailers, you will need to provide the Travel Trailer or Park Model Trailer Verification (Form VTR-141). This is designed for vehicles that are used for temporary living quarters and towed by a light-duty truck. It is also used for "park-type" trailers that are wider or longer than most travel trailers. This form will ask for a detailed description of the vehicle.
