What part of Maryland are you in?

I actually did a while-you-wait inspection when we bought ours. Took longer than expected, but it turned out to be because of a bad license plate light. But they never even disconnected it from the truck.

Western Howard County, not too far from Bowie, about an hour.

They had me over a barrel, knew that I wanted to get tags and title to go camping next week. My preferred dealer to take it to couldn't have looked at it until today and that was cutting it too close for me.

Normally I would have done all the work myself but didn't have the time to do it because of the impending camping trip and trying to juggle the tags and inspection.

And no, Tony Bennett did not do the inspection as far as I know.

Yeah. I took ours to a truck place not far from here, since the shops that work on RVs around here don't actually do inspections for some reason.

Yeah, that's what happened with us - I did replace a marker light that I noticed was bad before the inspection, but we never noticed the license plate light also didn't work. On the other hand, once you're at the shop, the hassle of going back for a second inspection makes paying them to fix it on the spot worth it sometimes!

I don't have a good idea what they're checking during those inspections. You'd think the ancient tires ours had on it would've failed (we'd understood they were newer than they were, and I hadn't checked them myself). One blew on the second trip, and that's when I realized they were about 8 years old... but they passed inspection!

We picked our trailer up from inspection today. Put the new tag on it, it's officially ours!

On the way back I went by the wholesale club and filled the propane tanks. When we got home we started putting bedding, dishes, appliances, etc. inside.

I tell my wife it's her "Barbie Dream House".

Personally, I am glad to have it in our name and not to have to deal with any more RV dealers for a while.
