trooper Tdiesel -- Thanks for that. From the Oregon DMV:
Quote:
A camper permanently mounted on a trailer is registered as a travel trailer.

A travel trailer is designed to provide facilities for human habitation (permanent sleeping and cooking facilities). Travel trailers are not used for commercial or business purposes. A travel trailer is any of the following that is 8.5 feet wide or less:

Recreational vehicle
Prefabricated structure

The width of 8.5 feet is measured when any expansion sides or “tipouts” are in the usual travel position
I wonder, what would they make of a 20' shipping container on a trailer that has a center spine and a sliding wheel dolly, like a log truck trailer?

I guess if a teardrop trailer has a Coleman camp stove and a place to roll out a sleeping bag, those aren't permanent facilities?
