All vehicles traveling on Romanian national roads must have an electronic vignette. Only motorcycles are exempt from this requirement. Motorhomes are taxed like passenger cars, regardless of their gross weight. They always fall under category A! In the case of trailers, a distinction must be made between passenger cars and commercial vehicles: If your vehicle is a passenger car (vehicle class A), you must purchase a vignette for your vehicle's license plate, but you do not need to take any additional steps when traveling with a trailer. If your vehicle is a commercial vehicle (vehicle class B-F), you must purchase a vignette for your vehicle's license plate, taking into account the total permissible weight of the vehicle and trailer. To determine the vehicle category, the total permissible weight of the commercial vehicle and trailer is added up. There are a total of eight vehicle categories (categories A-H). We will explain exactly which category you should select in the ordering process.
