21 DE Code § 6311 (2016) What's This?

(a) In the event any dealer intends to change a licensed location, the dealer shall provide the Division of Motor Vehicles advance written notice. A successful inspection of the new location shall be required prior to approval of a change of location by the dealer. All requirements of § 6303 of this title shall be completed prior to final approval.

(b) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, a recreational vehicle dealer may sell and display new and used recreational vehicles or recreational trailers at trade or public retail vehicle shows, rallies, or exhibitions, including those in enclosed malls, for up to 14 days per event, provided that:

(1) Delaware recreational vehicle dealers outside of their "area of sales responsibility," as the term is defined in § 8402(1) of this title, do not exhibit, sell or offer for sale the same line-make of recreational vehicle or recreational trailers as a Delaware dealer whose area of sales responsibility encompasses the location of the recreational vehicle trade show or public retail vehicle show, or rally or exhibition, where the term "line-make" has the same meaning as defined in § 8402(7) of this title; and without the written permission of the dealer whose area of responsibility encompasses the show, rally, or exhibition site;

(2) An out-of-state recreational vehicle dealer, without an established place of business in Delaware, must meet all of the following conditions:

a. The dealer must be from a state contiguous to Delaware that permits Delaware dealers to participate in recreational vehicle trade shows, or public retail vehicle shows, or rallies, or exhibitions, including those in enclosed malls, in the dealer's state under conditions substantially equivalent to those imposed on out-of-state dealers by Delaware;

b. The dealer must be in compliance with the laws of the dealer's state of residence;

c. The recreational vehicle trade show or public retail vehicle show, or rally, or exhibition in which the dealer is participating must have a minimum of 3 participating dealers, the majority of which are from Delaware;

d. The dealer may not exhibit, sell, or offer for sale the same line-make of recreational vehicle or recreational trailers as a Delaware dealer who is participating in the same recreational vehicle trade show or public retail vehicle show, rally, or exhibition without the Delaware dealer's written permission, where the term "line-make" has the same meaning as defined in § 8402(7) of this title; and

(3) In the event that an out-of-state dealer is in violation of paragraph (b)(2) of this section, the affected in-state dealer may bring a cause of action pursuant to § 8411(c) of this title.
