Oregon law (ORS
446.155) prohibits the sale, offering for sale, renting, offering
for rent, or lease of a recreational vehicle in Oregon unless one
of the following applies:
- The recreational vehicle has an Oregon insignia of compliance
attached to it.
- The recreational vehicle has previously been lawfully registered
and titled within the United States (i.e. a DMV registration and
- The recreational vehicle has been previously issued an ownership
document under ORS
446.571 or recorded under ORS
- The recreational vehicle is exempt from registration, title
or ownership document (i.e. federal government ownership).
Recreational vehicles not meeting these requirements may need to
be inspected prior to being offered for sale, rent or lease. Specific
requirements are adopted in OAR
An Oregon insignia of compliance is a label found on the outside
of the vehicle near the main entry door. These insignias are typically
blue in color with "State of Oregon Insignia of Compliance"
printed clearly at the top of the label. Older labels may be green
in color and some may be faded making them difficult to read.
If you have questions or need further information regarding whether
or not a vehicle requires an Oregon insignia of compliance, contact
the Recreational Vehicle and Parks Program at 503-373-7542 or email
Inspection requests for vehicles requiring Oregon insignia of
compliance must be made in writing using the division's Recreational
Vehicle Inspection and Insignia Request Application. Inspection
requests must be made prior to offering the vehicle for sale. Inspection
requests may be mailed or faxed to the division.
Dealers or distributors of recreational park trailers, also known
as park models, have additional requirements to meet prior to selling
recreational park trailers. Oregon law (ORS
446.260) requires that dealers or distributors of recreational
park trailers that are over 8-1/2 feet in width, present each potential
buyer of a new recreational park trailer a disclosure statement
to read and sign prior to the completion of the sales contract.
Dealers or distributors may use the division's
disclosure form or include the division's disclosure form within
their own sales contract. Dealers or distributors must follow the
requirements in OAR
918-525-0045 if they choose to include the division's disclosure
within their own contract.
