As of Nov. 19, 2017, recreational vehicle dealers in South Carolina have to obtain higher surety bond amounts.

T&D.com reported that the licensing requirements were changed with the introduction of Senate Bill 321. The bill was passed in May 2017.

Applicants seeking a recreational vehicle dealer license from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles need to post a dealer surety bond as a part of the process. Previously, the bond amount was $15,000. With the new legislation, the amount has been effectively doubled and RV dealers now need to obtain a $30,000 bond.

Additional changes introduced by Senate Bill 321 set the licensing fee for RV dealers at $50. Licensees also have to keep detailed records of their sales activity for at least four years.
