Recreational Vehicles (RVs) allow people to maximize how they recreate. Whether it be fishing, hiking, biking, off-roading, lounging, etc., RVs allow you to have your home away from home while you get to experience the landscape you want to see when you look out the window.

RVs are typically equipped with kitchens, refrigerators, bathrooms, sleeping area, relaxing areas like couches or lounge chairs. They typically have TVs, heater, air conditioning, solar systems, and generators. The types of RVs are Class A Gas, Class A Diesel, Class B, Class C, Travel Trailer, 5th wheel, Toy Haulers (in 5th wheel or travel trailer form), Folding Camper (Pop up), and Slide In Camper (Pickup Camper).

Before You Get Started

Towable and Motorized RVs are required to be licensed by the motor vehicle department. The fees and taxes are determined by RV type, weight, model year, and where you reside by the motor vehicle division.

Towable RVs require a tow vehicle like an SUV or pickup to tow the RV. A slide in camper requires a pickup. A motorized RV does not require additional gear and can be operated using a Colorado Class R (standard, non-CDL) drivers license as long as the total weight of the RV does not meet or exceed 26,000 pounds. Most RVs do not fall into this category.
