A motorhome is a motor vehicle that is designed for personal accommodation. Motorhomes are equipped with 1 or more permanently attached beds and at least 2 of the following permanently attached appliances:
- a refrigerator wired into the motorhome's electrical system
- a stove
- a toilet and washing facility
Motorhomes and recreational trailers, need to be manufactured to either the CSA Z240 RV standard or the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1192 standard. This includes homebuilt motorhomes and RV trailers. You should check to ensure you have a label of compliance before registering your recreational vehicle.
A motorhome may be a manufactured unit or a vehicle such as a bus or van that has been converted to a motorhome. For more information on these standards and their application contact Vehicle Standards and Inspections.
To register your motorhome, visit your local motor licence issuer with your vehicle renewal notice. Your motor licence issuer will ask you to provide the following information:
First time registration
If it is your first time registering the motorhome, your motor licence issuer will also require the following:
- The bill of sale (pdf, 12kb).
- An Inspection Certificate, if the vehicle was a total loss or was purchased outside of Saskatchewan.
- A Vehicle Import form from Canada Customs, if the vehicle was purchased outside of Canada.

Safe Driver Recognition discount
Your Safe Driver Recognition discount can be found on the front of the vehicle renewal notice, under the heading Recognition Program.
Calculating motorhome fees
If you would like to calculate the cost of registering and insuring your motorhome, follow the steps below:
- Determine your gross vehicle weight (GVW) from the Motorhome GVW guide.
- For example, a Class C style motorhome that is 25 to 31 ft long averages in weight from 4,762 kg to 6,373 kg. If your motorhome is 28 ft long, estimate a figure within that weight range, such as 6,000 kg.
- Find your registration fee on the registration fee guide.
- For example, the registration fee for a motorhome with a GVW of 6,000 kg is $112.
- Find your insurance premium on the Insurance premium guide.
- For example, if your motorhome is valued at $25,000, your insurance premium would be $565.
- Deduct your Safe Driver Recognition discount (if applicable) from the insurance premium (not from the registration fee).
- For example, if your Safe Driver Recognition discount is 12% and your insurance premium is $565, you would deduct $68 ($565 x .12 = $67.80).
- If you are renting out your motorhome(U-Drive), add 15% to the insurance premium.
- For example, if your insurance premium is $565, you would add $85 ($565 x .15 = $84.75).
