House Trailer

Using the “H” prefix, this type was introduced in 1955. It was stated by the DMV in 1964 as being “issued to all camper or dwelling type house trailers.” The last use of it was a 1971 base revalidated with a 1974 sticker. This type was then replaced by the MH plate, the prefix standing for “Mobile Home.” The MH plate actually first appeared in 1973, so there was a two-year overlap during which
some existing H-prefix plates could be renewed, such that both H and MH plates were in use concurrently. Whereas House Trailer (H) plates were renewed annually, the subsequent Mobile Home and Manufactured Home (MH) tags were permanent plates. Please see the sections on Mobile Home and Manufactured Home plates for more details on those types.
