Registering your RV in Iowa
Iowa law requires you to register your RV with the county’s treasurer’s office within 30 days of purchase date. It’s the same process as your standard vehicle registration. The fee to register depends on the type of RV, weight and your county of residence. You must submit your vehicle's title and complete a registration application form.

Insuring your vehicle in Iowa
RVs are a great way to explore Iowa but first you want to make sure you are properly insured. Motor homes are required by the state of Iowa to carry liability insurance. If you finance your RV, the lender will likely require you to carry full coverage insurance to protect your investment. Towable RVs such as fifth wheels and travel trailers do not require insurance and are automatically extended from the insurance policy of the tow vehicle. Be careful that you have the proper coverage on your RV to ensure you are covered for any damages.
