We had to have our trailer inspected by the CHP in Newcastle, Ca since the dealer in WA made the mistake of actually listening the the DMV headquarters in Sacramento and mailing our documents there. You will have your package in hand so you can go wherever you want. The CHP officer was very helpful because the DMV office mailed me the wrong paperwork. You should at least consider using the DMV office in Rocklin, CA. Very helpful staff and decent sized parking lot (depending on traffic levels). Good luck!

Mine was a three step process. Go to the DMV to get the initial paperwork. Take the paperwork and the trailer to the local CHP office for inspection. (No appointment was necessary at the CHP.) Take the paperwork back to the DMV and finalize the transaction.

Thanks again everyone for the great advice! I think that I'm going to try either the Alturas or Yreka offices. Alturas has the advantage that the DMV and CHP are right next door to each other. Parking may be a question, but the offices are on a small side road and when I look at Google Maps, there appears to be a wide space for parking large vehicles right in front of the offices. Yreka has the advantage that there is a large shopping center parking lot and on one side is the DMV office while the other has a AAA office and the DMV office is only .2 miles away.

We camped in ours before getting it registered. I bought the trailer in Arkansas. I waited till the last minute to get it registered. Here in Mississippi we have 5 business days to get it done without extra penalties. I was at the courthouse on day number 5. Honestly, I had to wait till payday. Also, I always wait till the last minute on anything to do with the tax collector. I asked the lady one time when do I really have to pay late fees on license plate renewal. She told me the 15th of the month after expiration. Since then I have been renewing my plates on the 15th of the next month. Let me keep my money from the government for another 2 weeks...
