A $25,000 Motor Home Show Promoter’s Surety Bond must be filed with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) by a promoter who is unlicensed or is not part of an organization of licensees. The bond is a requirement for the promoter to receive authority to exhibit new motor homes.
Buying your Motor Home Show Promoter Bond with Jet is an easy way to align your business with the TxDMV’s dedication to consumer protection, as the bond is used to compensate those harmed by illegal business practices.
You can purchase your Motor Home Show Promoter Bond from Jet for as low as $250 per year. Rates are based on a credit check. A credit check is needed for rate approval but it is only a soft inquiry; it will not affect your credit as a hard credit pull does.
Applying for your bond only takes a minute with Jet! Our application only asks for information that is needed for issuing the bond: general business information, contact information, and a social security number (for the soft credit check). Once you complete all fields, you will find your approved rate that you can purchase right then and there.
After your payment goes through, Jet will prepare your Motor Home Show Promoter Bond and send it to you. You will need to sign the bond and attach it along with your promoter application, submitting all required paperwork to the TxDMV at the following address:
Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
Motor Vehicle Division
PO Box 26487
Austin, TX 78755
This bond has an expiration date that is included on the form; it cannot be cancelled before that date. You may need additional coverage after that date if you renew your authority with the TxDMV; Jet will send you a mailed and emailed notice when your term is ending so you can make arrangements for additional bond terms as needed.
The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles will not grant authority for exhibiting motor homes to a promoter until the following requirements are met:
To avoid bond claims, a promoter needs to make sure that they are in compliance with the DMV’s rules and regulations as they pertain to motor home shows. The show must be no longer than six consecutive days and cannot begin within 90 days of the last show in the same county. The show must also be in compliance with the following sections (by both the promoters and all participants in a motor home show):
If the motor home show promoter breaks these rules, an injured party can lay claim on the bond to be compensated for damages. Multiple claims can be filed, as long as the sum of the claims does not go over the $25,000 bond limit. Any complaints that come in will be evaluated for merit by the TxDMV before proceeding to the next level. Because of this, it is likely that claims will hold up during the investigation and lead to a bond payout.
