7.015 Camp Trailers (VC §242)

A “camp trailer” is a vehicle designed to be used on a highway, capable of human habitation for camping or recreational purposes, that does not exceed 16 feet (192 inches) in overall length or does not exceed 8 feet (96 inches) in width. When a trailer telescopes for travel, the size applies to the fully extended trailer. A tent trailer is a camp trailer, regardless of length. A camp trailer is not a trailer coach. Camp trailers are registered under the permanent trailer identification (PTI) program.
