   16         320.771 License required of recreational vehicle dealers.—
   17         (7) SUPPLEMENTAL LICENSE.—A Any person licensed under
   18  pursuant to this section shall be entitled to operate one or
   19  more additional places of business under a supplemental license
   20  for each such business if the ownership of each business is
   21  identical to that of the principal business for which the
   22  original license is issued. Each supplemental license shall run
   23  concurrently with the original license and shall be issued upon
   24  application by the licensee on a form to be furnished by the
   25  department and payment of a fee of $50 for each such license.

   27  business. A supplemental license authorizing off-premises sales
   28  shall be issued, at no charge to the dealer, for a period not to
   29  exceed 10 consecutive calendar days. A licensed dealer who
   30  conducts an off-premises sale not in conjunction with a public
   31  vehicle show, as defined in s. 320.3203(5)(c), shall:
   32         (a) Notify the applicable local department office of the
   33  specific dates and location for which such license is requested.

   35  duration of the off-premises sale.
   36         (c) Meet all local government permit requirements.

   38  that location.

   40  which clearly identifies the dealer’s name and business address
   41  as listed on the dealer’s original license.
   42         (f) Prominently include the dealer’s name and business
   43  address, as listed on the dealer’s original license, in all
   44  advertisements associated with such sale.
   45         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2014.
