Here are the facts related to Texas going to one sticker.
Bottom line - As RVers, we will be able to renew the registration without coming back for the inspection if we are out of state, when it would normally be due, by self certifying that you are out of state. Once you get back to Texas you will have 3 days to get the RV inspected.

For those traveling away from the state - from the web site:
"Special CircumstancesOut of State Motorists
If your vehicle is out of state and you are unable to complete a Texas vehicle inspection in order to renew your registration, you will be able to self-certify that the vehicle is out of state and will be permitted to register. The self-certification process will be limited to:
You will be able to renew your registration using self-certification online, by mail or in-person. Please contact your county tax office for more information about their requirements for out-of-state registration renewal. To find the contact information for your county of residence, please visit the TxDMV website.
If you renew your vehicle registration using the out-of-state self-certification option, a remark will be placed on your vehicle record indicating that an inspection is still due. Once you return to the state, you must complete a Texas vehicle inspection within three days of arrival at your home, duty station, or destination. It is very important that you keep the VIR issued after completing your inspection in case you are stopped by law enforcement before the remark is removed from your vehicle record, which takes about 48 hours. The remark will only be removed upon payment of the state’s portion of the inspection fee and verification of a current, passing inspection."
Make sure you have all the information to make an informed decision about choosing a state for domicile.
Hopefully this will help.
