By VIN paperwork, do you mean Title? That is in progress and I will be receiving it within the week, according to the San Antonio tax office.

The DMV in Oregon may inspect it and issue you a paper for you to give to the DMV in Texas so you can get your plates, ive done it before here.

If you have the title coming, then I think you're in good shape.

Registration/tags are really a separate issue. I think if you have a title then you're already covered for VIN inspection, but I'm not sure on that. Just ask your DMV or tax office, they should be able to let you know. At that point I believe you'll need the safety inspection and proof of insurance. The insurance that my tax office requested to see was on the trailer itself, not the tow vehicle, and they specifically wanted to see the "Declarations Page" rather than just an insurance card, which is fine because my carrier doesn't issue cards for travel trailers anyway.

Now that I think about it, it was actually the safety inspector who FIRST asked to see proof of insurance, and then the tax office wanted to see it as well.

As has been discovered on this thread, though, it really is a matter of who you talk to at your DMV or tax office, as to what specifically they're going to ask for.

Good luck!

This has been a very helpful discussion for me. I do not have an AS yet, but will be buying this fall and perhaps out of my home state of TX. As for the discussion of "inspections" mentioned here--I have owned a TT for 9 years and have never been required to have an inspection and my only insurance is the liability required by law on my tow vehicle.

Registered mine here in Houston last spring. I think things may vary across the state based upon the many reports on this forum. Took me a few trips back and forth. I had an out of state - S. Carolina title and even though it had the weight on it I had to get it weighed at the local Cat Scales- they wouldn't accept the weight on the out of state title. Then had to get it inspected and yes there is a form required for that. Think the important thing there was the VIN # . Took about 20 minutes at a local inspection joint. After that it was pay the taxes and walked out with the plates (3rd try). Now I have a Texas Title in my name, Texas Plates and a little Texas sticker on the frame.

I have brought trailers from non-texas states into texas and texas to texas. For non-texas states, the DMV wants a certificate that a texas inspection station verified the VIN. That is all that they need prior to issuing a title (even if you have a title from the other state). I don't know the purpose, but that is the policy. This policy is true for cars as well as trailers.

The important thing here being that the VIN confirmation paperwork must be completed by a Texas approved inspection station on a Texas form, and Texas will not accept forms from other states. This makes sense because you pay Texas Sales and Use Tax on the transaction, so the property is supposed to have been sold or used here

A call to the Texas DMV explaining your situation is in order, goodluck!

Jeeze....don't stir the water!

I guess I have been lucky. I re-read the regs last night....I have been escaping the tangled mess you all are discussing. I hope my place does not become embroiled in the mess. All the paperwork you have mentioned is, in fact, mentioned. Lets keep this low key.

Vin

Just recently bought a used AS from out of state and here in CO they require a physical VIN inspection on the unit before you can register it.

r carl:

I guess you never tried calling a Texas DMV. You would be about as likely
to speak to the President of the US. Of course, if one enjoys hearing a
busy tone 24/7? Anyway, that is been my experience in Dallas County and surrounding counties. Oh, if you want to stand in a long line just to speak to someone, allow several hours just to get a run around answer.

Once, in Travis County, I couldn't even get in line. A police officer was turning people away because the line was to the door, and they didn't want people waiting outside in the heat because there's nothing worse than having to deal with hot, bored customers. :P

Actually, the officer said, "look, people have been getting heat stroke, it's 110F, here's a map to a less busy office." Fair enough.

And, of course,.....my favorite....

I have a ranch in Hidalgo County, Texas. I don't want to even get a little bit political here....BUT, you have to speak Spanish when you go into the County office there. I moved to Cooke County, Texas where I have to speak Oklahoman at the County Office. There is a difference.
