West Virginia breaks down the personal vehicle classes into four main groups: personal vechicles, personal vechicles with a trailer, motor homes or recreational vehicles, and motorhomes/RVs with a trailer.
Commercial vechicles also have their own class designations. Typically, box trucks and larger trucks, over seven feet, six inches in height, are bumped to the higher vehicle classes.
Motorcycles count as a car, including motorcycles with a sidecar. Motorcycles with a trailer would count as a vehicle-with-trailer class.
Please see the guide below for a full understanding of the classes.
