Do You Need to Register a Truck Camper in Idaho?

In Idaho, registering a truck camper is not always necessary. This is because the laws in Idaho provide a variety of exemptions when it comes to registering a truck camper. Some of these exemptions include: if the truck camper is a model year that is older than 10 years, if it weighs less than 1000 lbs., or if it is used solely for camping purposes.

In order to register a truck camper in Idaho, there are several documents that must be completed and submitted to the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles. The first document needed is an Idaho Application for Certificate of Title. This application must be completed by the owner of the truck camper and must include information such as the make and model of the vehicle, as well as any lienholders who may have an interest in it.

The next document that must be submitted is an Idaho Bill of Sale. This document must include information such as the date of sale, the name and address of both parties involved in the sale, and any monies transacted during the sale. It should also include any liens associated with the vehicle that must be satisfied prior to its registration.

Once these documents have been completed and submitted to the department, they will then review your application and determine whether or not your truck camper needs to be registered in Idaho. If it does, then you will need to pay a registration fee and submit additional documents such as proof of insurance coverage on your vehicle.

In addition to submitting all necessary paperwork, you may also need to take your truck camper into an authorized inspection station for an emissions test before it can be registered in Idaho. Once all requirements have been met and approved by state officials, you will receive your registration sticker which can then be placed on your vehicle.


So, do you need to register a truck camper in Idaho? The answer depends on several factors such as its age, weight and purpose for being used; however, it is generally recommended that all owners take steps to register their vehicles properly so they can remain compliant with state laws. Furthermore, even if your particular vehicle qualifies for one or more exemptions from registration requirements, you may still want to consider taking steps to register it anyways so that you can benefit from added safety measures while driving on public roads.
