Motor Vehicle Dealer Board; authority over recreational, trailer, and motorcycle dealers; penalties. Transfers the oversight of recreational, trailer, and motorcycle dealers from the Department of Motor Vehicles to the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board. The bill also provides for representation by recreational, trailer, and motorcycle dealers on the Board and updates the term "T&M" (travel trailers and motor homes) to "recreational." The bill increases the penalty for dealers' noncompliance with requirements for issuance of temporary license plates from a Class 3 misdemeanor to a Class 1 misdemeanor, and creates a Class 1 misdemeanor for failure to comply with safety inspections or disclosures required before the sale of certain types of trailers.
