Question FL to NH Title and Registration Questions

Hello All!

I just bought a 1975 Airstream Ambassador in Florida Yesterday. I was given a Florida Title and a Bill of Sale. The trailer currently has no registration or plates. My perminent address is in New Hampshire but I am staying in Florida for the winter while renovating the camper before it ever goes to New Hampshire. The trailer is 120 miles away from the campground I will be at all winter. Should I just hook on and tow it here without any plates or should I go to the Florida DMV and get temporary plates? Do I need to have the trailer inspected while I am in Florida? Basically it is going to be at least 5 months before the Airstream is ever actually in NH where I intend to title and register it. What do you recommend I do in the mean time? Can I just bring the FL Title and Bill of Sale to NH and do all necessary paperwork without the trailer being present? Thank you for your time and help... Joe

P.S. I am looking forward to being an active member of this community now that I have finally made my dream of owning an Airstream real.

120 miles with no plates, not wise. Not sure what the fine is but up here it would be more than the $10 for the temp plate.

As for NH, that old needs to have a Bill of Sale. The title may help to get plates in Concord, but all the ones I have registered, I have needed to get a form and have a police officer stop by to verify the VIN #. Which is always interesting as I have had to explain by there are so few numbers in the VIN and what they mean

This link may help, if not there is a contact link.
