Mobile homes
A mobile home is a unit of housing which is built on a permanent chassis and is designed to be used, when connected to utilities, as a dwelling. In the State of New Jersey, a mobile home must be titled within 10 days of purchase or face a penalty fee.

The titling process for a mobile home is similar to titling a vehicle; however, mobile homes are exempt from registration and inspection. Under certain conditions, used mobile homes are also exempt from sales tax.

To acquire a title for a new or used mobile home visit your local Motor Vehicle Agency with the following documents:
  • Acceptable proof of identification
  • A properly completed, signed, original Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin (MCO) or title
  • If the vehicle is financed, you must provide the address and corpcode of the lien holder. The original title will be sent to the lien holder
  • $60 fee or $85 fee for a financed vehicle
  • MVC accepts American Express® card, MasterCard®, Visa® card, check, money order or cash

Motor homes and station wagons
To register a motor home as a recreational passenger vehicle, you need to visit any MVC Agency with the vehicle title and/or the manufacturer's Certificate of Origin (MCO)
  • If more than one MCO was issued due to changes or additions to the original design of the vehicle, you can either bring both MCOs or the title and the additional MCO
Complete an application for registration (Form BA-49) including:
If you do not have a New Jersey title for this vehicle in your name, complete the sales tax information in the stamped section on your MCO and pay the registration fees, sales tax and $60 for title ($85 for title with a lien).

These vehicles will be registered at the highest passenger weight class for the vehicle.

Within 14 days of registration, you must have the vehicle inspected with your valid license, new registration and proof of insurance.
