Manufactured homes, mobile homes and office trailers (commercial coaches) are titled by the Nevada Housing Division, which also licenses dealerships, installers and other segments of the industry.

Manufactured homes are registered and taxed by County Assessors. Contact both agencies.

The Nevada Department of Transportation issues movement permits and the Nevada State Police Highway Patrol can provide traffic control services.

Recreational Park Trailers

Recreational park trailers or “park models” of up to 400 square feet are titled by the DMV. Please present all proof of ownership documents such as a Dealer's Report of Sale, a sales or lease contract, a Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin and/or an existing title. See Titles.

A VIN inspection (locations) is required on trailers brought in from another state. The DMV may collect sales taxes on out-of-state dealer sales. Trailers of more than 400 square feet are considered manufactured homes. 

Recreational park trailers are registered and taxed by County Assessors in the same manner as manufactured homes. Contact both the DMV and the County Assessor.

Contact the Nevada Department of Transportation for information on movement permits.
