Are park trailers and park model recreational vehicles required to have a data plate?
Tuesday, June 19, 2018
Park model is the newer name for park trailers, and they are manufactured under American National Standards Institute’s ANSI119.5 standard, which specifies that a data plate, like the one shown above, must be installed at or near the electric panel or other location that is readily accessible and visible. The data plate must include the name and address of the manufacturer, date of manufacture, serial or VIN number, and a statement that the unit was built in compliance with ANSI 119.5.
Park Models are limited to 400 square feet of floor area, with one exception: the maximum square footage can be raised to 500, only in Florida, if built to HUD standards. These jumbo Park Models will have a HUD data plate, which is larger and contains more construction data. See our blog post Do Park Model trailers have a HUD plate?
