licensed appraisal needed

Texas department of Motor Vehicles won't give me a title without a licensed appraisal. Must be a Motor Vehicle Dealer or licensed Insurance Adjuster.

Does anyone have a recomendation? I'm in Austin,TX

Try Camper Clinic in Buda, Texas. They are an authorized Airstream dealer and are in the top 15% in sales annually.

Try you bank - talk to them and see who they might recommend - I'm sure they have a list of appraisers. If you do some research on these forums, you will see why CCII is not a good idea. Try some body shops...

Top 15% in sales means nothing except being the only Airstream dealership in the area (& $$ for the owner). We're talking service which is a very different beast! Heck, pretty much everyone doesn't have a problem with sales...

What is it they DO have problems with?

Call Pat or Randy at North Dallas RV. I got my insurance appraisals from them.
I also recommend trying different DMV offices. I have found they REALLY vary in Texas.

Jim Polk did a professional appraisal for us..

His appraisal was instrumental in our receiving a very favorable insurance settlement for our 69 Overlander. We highly recommend him. paula
