You want to get a in writing exactly what coverage you have. I know in my case my trailer has more value than the tow vehicle it is attached to I donít believe my insurance will pay me the total value for the trailer for the premium I pay for my truck.

I have had over a 100K in house hold claims and a claim on a totaled 34í ocean going sailboat I have learned a few things about insurance companies, agents and adjusters. At this very moment in New Orleans there are thousands of home owners who were told by their agents that they didnít need flood insurance who now are not covered. The court cases are starting. Donít take your agents word for anything concerning insurance they are salesmen.
I have nothing to say for dishonest Insurance companies or agents. Mine has been very honest and has recomended may new things for me to look at for coverage post Katrina. My Caravel was a last second purchase during the holidays and I went to pick her up without notifying my agent or insurance company (WRONG MOVE). I made the call from a Walmat parking lot in Indiana wondering what a mess I got myself in for. They verified that ANYTHING I tow with my vehicle was covered, I had to add the camper with a rider(sp?) to my homeowners to insure her when disconnected ($189.00 per year for $20K in coverage), even faxed a copy of the policy to a SF office in the town I got the trailer in to pick up for the ride.

As far as New Orleans, every year the predictions of the "BIG ONE" were all over the news. Unprepared???? They live in a bowl, it's going to fill again someday, that's what bowls do. Some of the same people that did not have flood insurance put axes in their attics as a way out when the floods did happen (?). Don't worry about them too much, the Feds will gladly give them your tax dollars to rebuild, it's an election year and LA is a key state. Pray for the less fortunate on the MS Gulf Coast, we are rebuilding with our own money.

BTW - EST. Value of Trailer

BTW - I had to find reasonable sales of like trailers for the insurance amout I got for my Caravel. I did it all online with past ebay sales and here with adds for simular size campers and their prices. Once I had three comparisons they wrote up the policy, camping gear was an additional amount, $8 extra per year for up to $2500 in value.

Your are very uninformed about New Orleans and Mississippi also. I live in New Orleans and I and almost everyone I know were well insured. What I stated was many people in New Orleans and Mississippi were told that they were not required to have flood insurance by their insurance agents. The flooding in New Orleans was caused by the failure of levees designed and maintained by the United States Corp of Engineers. BTW I am one of the persons who has an axe in my attic. Mississippi is getting more of the tax payer money than New Orleans and the same benefits as New Orleans. The first insurance suit went to court last week in Mississippi and concerned flood damage verses wind damage. I can tell you I have driven along the Gulf Coast for years and looked at the foundations of the homes which Camille blew away in 1969 and wonder why people would rebuild in the area and place floating Casinos in the area. I assume that you feel that is a acceptable risk. How you come to the conclusion the Louisiana is a key state shows how politically out of touch you are. Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour is the former head or the Republican National Committee and the Federal response in Mississippi was much better than in Louisiana. Governor Barbour is a very good leader and is doing a great job in your state. Please do not insult my state or my home town as I do not wish to insult yours.

Maryland MVA response

Dear MVA Customer,

Thank you for your recent e-mail inquiry. The answer to your question is as
follows.

If an out-of-state resident purchases a vehicle from a MD dealer, the dealer
will issue a temporary tag for the vehicle to be driven to the state it is
going to be titled and registered in. However, if an out-of-state resident
chooses to purchase a vehicle in Maryland from a non-dealer, the purchaser
would need to provide their own means of transporting the vehicle to the
other state as MD MVA does not offer any type of temporary, in-transit or
transporter tag for this purpose. Please contact your state's Department of
Motor Vehicles to inquire if they provide a temporary tag for this purpose.

We hope this information will assist you.

Sounds as if MD only wants you to do business with dealers if you are from out of state. I don't understand a legal way of driving or towing your purchase out of the state must exist.

I Love NY :-) Catch-22, runaround

I'm feeling brave, once I add the insurance. Too hard to do it 'legally', and not worth another 60 gallons of fuel after I've looked at it to come back with NY plates.

Question
How do I bring a vehicle I purchased in NYS to another state to register it in the other state? How do I bring a vehicle I purchased in NYS to another part of NYS to register it? Answer At a DMV office, you can apply for an in-transit permit that is valid for 30 days. You can use a NYS in-transit permit to transport the vehicle to another location in NYS or to another state where you will register the vehicle. You cannot use a NYS in-transit permit to transport a vehicle from another state into NYS. Contact the motor vehicle agency in the state where the vehicle is located.

I agree, I would get the insurance and go for it. I don't belive the Highway Patrol have it in for the owners of Airstreams. I would check my lights and be sure they work as that is about all I can think of that might get their attention. Let us know the outcome.

Good Luck Jim

You might try contacting a Title Service Agent, they might be able to provide the same service that you could get from a dealer.

I recently purchased an '84 Excella 270 Motor Home from an idividual in Texas via EBay.

Here are the steps I took to legally bring the vehicle back home to NY. I hope this helps anyone in a similar situation.

1] I called the DMV in NY and Texas for advice.

2] I secured the VIN from the seller and bought insurance from my local agent with coverage to begin on the day of pickup in Texas.

3] I printed out the purchase form [DTF-802] for NY from the NY DMV
website and filled in the parts I could before I flew to Texas.

4] Upon arrival and delivery of the vehicle, I asked for and received a bill of sale stating the VIN, the price, the buyer, the seller, and the date.

5] The seller transferred ownership to me by filling out the appropriate spaces on the Texas title.

6] The seller and I traveled to the County Tax Office whereupon I
presented my insurance form, the Texas title and $25 to receive a Texas temporary [30 day] cardboard plate. The title and insurance card was returned to me. Had the seller's Texas registration been current [it was recently expired] I COULD have driven home on his plate and saved the $25.

7] At another desk in the same office the seller and I signed the bill of sale in front of a Notary Public who stamped it for a fee of $10.

8] I affixed the temporary plate to the motorhome and drove it uneventfully to NY.

9] Once home in NY, I completed the NY DMV Form [MV-82] for registration of a vehicle, presented the notarized bill of sale, the insurance card, the Texas title, and the previously completed form [DTF-802], paid the sales tax plus registration fee, and was presented my new plates and a 15 day inspection waiver.

10] With a valid NY inspection, my registration was complete. I now await the NY title which will arrive shortly from Albany.
