Hi Sargee,
The USA states are pretty consistent with regulations for motor vehicles and trailers. While there can be exceptions, any motor vehicle used on public roads must have a license plate and comply with the insurance laws of that state.

Trailers need a license plate when being towed on public roads. For insurance check with the state DMV.

If the motor vehicle is used only in the CG (private), then the rules for that CG are what needs to be complied with. If the CG is publicly owned, usually the laws concerning public roads is enforced.

If you doubt, check with the state DMV for their rules. This can usually be found on their web site.

licensing and registrations usually follow the same rules. If you are licensed in your state to drive a certain class vehicle, then the visiting states honor that license. If your state does not require a registration tag for a trailer, then most states honor that. If you were to be summonsed, you would usually beat the rap upon presenting proof from your state of issuance. One exception would be states that allow dual and triple trailering in their state. If your state allows triples but a visiting state doesn't, be prepared for a summons.

The OP is asking about entry permits for the federal and state parks, not registration tags.

I think the OP is talking about permits for individual vehicles/cycles inside the park. For instance, he gets a permit for the motorhome. Does he need a permit for the toad? And another for the motorcycles?

If that's his question, I would recommend he contact the parks directly.

The only input I can give you for your actual question is what happens to us when we go to National Parks like Yellowstone. We have an annual pass for two people. We show it when we enter the park. We don't pay anything else for the RV or the toad. We usually park outside the NP itself, as the campground there are too small for us. When we enter in the toad, we show the pass again.

Generally state parks don't care about trailers. They want you to purchase a permit for any type of vehicle that will be driven in the park that has a motor.

In most cases when you come through the registration station they'll look at what you're towing and tell you whether or not you need a permit for it. If you do need one in addition to the one for the motorhome they'll issue it to you at a discounted rate. In Wisconsin an additional vehicle is 1/2 the cost of the primary vehicle.

You might want to ask about annual permits depending on the number of days you'll be in the state throughout the year. If you stay more than a week in state parks it's generally cheaper to buy an annual permit

In Colorado state parks, when I haul my m-cycle in the toyhauler, they wil give me a free "towed-vehicle" pass for it while I am staying there. Probably need to check with the ranger when you get there, most will work with you to get you what you need for the lowest cost.

The state parks around here don't really care so much about a window tag or sticker for the MotorHome since it will be parked. The car you will be driving in and around the park is the one they require a window tag on.

Idk what im talking about, but in Minnesota. if you buy a annual state park pass..its good for every state park in Minnesota. and you only have to buy one. and it goes in your window. it lets you get into the park for free..camping is extra. If you was to buy a national park sticker, i believe you would only have to buy one,
and from my own experience, I live down the road from a state park, and i told the ranger that i was a photographer and that i come here often with different clients, but not always in my car, he told me as long as there was a sticker in the window, nobody would even think twice, since all the stickers are the same. So instead of sticking that sticker to my window, i just carry it, and stick it in whatever windshield i may be in that day!
and if you come to minnesota this summer hit me up!!

Wisconsin has the same policy as far as one sticker for all state parks. They do however frown on moving a sticker from 1 vehicle to another. If they catch you doing it they'll make you affix it to the windshield of the vehicle you're driving.
