Utah Bill to Provide One-Time Registration Fee for Vintage Travel Trailers Signed Into Law

A SEMA-supported bill to create a statutory definition of a “vintage travel trailer” and provide for a one-time $40 registration fee was signed into law by Governor Gary Herbert. Under the law, vintage travel trailers will also be eligible for a special group license plate and exempted from wheel cover, mudguard, flap or splash apron requirements. 

Slated to go into effect July 1, 2012, the new law defines a "vintage travel trailer" as a travel trailer, camping trailer or fifth-wheel trailer that is 30 years old or older and primarily a collector's item that is used for participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades, occasional recreational or vacation use and other similar uses.
