Thanks for the suggestions! I didn't make it out there yesterday, but going today and trying to get the county sheriff to do the inspection. The seller looked at the tongue and found a third number that could possibly be the serial/VIN, but it doesn't follow Airstream's naming convention, so we'll see. I'm also going to check the wardrobes since they're the only cabinetry still present.

I'm glad there are so many active and helpful airstream owners out there. I'm sure I'll be asking a million other questions once the rehab starts.

Register it in Vermont, just like I did. 2.5 weeks and plate is in my hand!

I guess the laws in Texas are not clearly understood or consistently applied. I have registered two vintage Airstreams in Texas that came with out of state titles (NM and AZ) and was not required to get either one inspected.

Congratulations on being able to get plates for your vintage Airstreams! I too believe that there is inconsistent applications of the new Texas Vehicle Registration laws.

I have noticed that dual axel vehicles must go thru the hoops of inspection then presenting the paperwork to the county clerk tax folks to get your plates. At that time they want some sort of liability insurance document as well, at least for the TV. Single axel trailers under 3000 lbs. capacity are exempt, but still have to buy a plate.

Once that has been done one time, from then on you get the yearly inspection and then go online and finish your registration, pay your money and receive your sticker in the mail. The vehicle inspection sticker and the license plate in one item, not two.

All that said, the satellite office for registration in the county could care less and just takes the money and gives you your license plate sticker. The office at the court house is a different matter all together.

At our court house the property tax folks are in the same room as the vehicle tax folks. They are really nice people but they have a thing for billfolds and purses. They want yours!

Happy Trails

Just renewed the plate on my Flying Cloud. No inspection, no insurance documents, just pay the fee and get the sticker.
