Texas - Registration and Weight.

I just picked up a 2000 Airstream Safari23 SE. I bought it in Missouri. I have the title and need to get it registered and weighted. I don't have a clue where to start this in Texas. Anyone????

I am going on memory, but I believe you have to have proof of inspection, proof of insurance. weight and of course the old title. I think there are one or two forms that you can download and complete ahead of time. A call to the County tax collector's office should provide all the details. Don't forget money for the use and other taxes/fees. I think the use tax is 3% of the purchase price.

I have never been asked for a weight certification. The Clerk will ask the weight...give the weight on your documentation. Have an insurance form from your tow vehicle and a checkbook. If you need a weight for your office in Dallas go to a Co Op in the area and get weighed on their scales.
"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted
then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production."

I had to get mine inspected and they wanted a weight. I would take it by a Cat scale and then to any RV dealer for a "green sheet" (I think). It is a transfer of title form. Any RV dealer with a service bay will have them. Take that and scale reading to the dmv and transfer your title. The weighing and inspection should not be more that $20-30 total. Title $ depends on value they assign to the trailer.

I have been thru this 3 times. Not a big deal. Any inspection station can do the inspection. It is called a Green slip (now white) that they will give you with the inspection. Go to any certified scales and get it weighed and get a slip. Take both to the DMV along with proof of liability and title and Texas sales forms and you're home free. Of course you'll have to shell out some registration bucks!
