4604H.01I D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk
To amend chapter 301, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to camping trailer license plates.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 301, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 301.136, to read as follows:
301.136. 1. Any camping or fifth-wheel trailer, as defined by section 407.1320, that is over twenty-five years old may be permanently registered upon payment of a registration fee of twenty-five dollars. Upon the transfer of the title to any such trailer, the registration shall be cancelled and the license plates issued therefor shall be returned to the director of revenue.
2. The owner of any such trailer shall file an application in a form prescribed by the director and a certificate of registration shall be issued therefor.
3. Notwithstanding any provisions of this section to the contrary, any person possessing license plates issued by the state of Missouri that are over twenty-five years old, in which the year of issuance of such plates is consistent with the year of the manufacture of the camping or fifth-wheel trailer, may register such plates as historic trailer plates as set forth in this section, provided that the configuration of letters, numbers, or combination of letters and numbers of such plates are not identical to the configuration of letters, numbers, or combination of letters and numbers of any plates already issued to an owner by the director. Such license plates shall not be required to possess the characteristic features of reflective material and common color scheme and design as prescribed by section 301.130. The owner of the historic trailer registered under this section shall keep the certificate of registration in the trailer at all times. The certificate of registration shall be prima facie evidence that the trailer has been properly registered with the director and that all fees have been paid.
