Ohio HDTs


Recommended Posts

For those of you living in Ohio how are you getting around the requirement of "must not have a fifth wheel" to be considered an rv? Or are u just taking off the commercial hitch, getting it registered and then installing the smaller rv fifth wheel hitch? Or am I just reading the law completely wrong and all they want is no commercial fifth wheel hitch on the back of it?

The Ohio reg says 5th wheel hitch, not commercial 5th wheel hitch. I took my RV hitch off when I got it registered and then put it back on after I got the new title. It also says something like permanently installed cooking and/or refrigeration. I used a 12 volt hot plate and 12 volt refrig. I got the motorhome title with this setup, but it was a gray area to say the least. Noone really looked at the truck's interior but I know I got lucky. My hitch came off with one bolt. I left on the bracket holding the hitch. For the trouble of one bolt I thought why chance leaving the hitch on.
