When I bought my first smart it was two years before they were imported here so needless to say it did stand out and drew lots of attention. It was imported and converted to U.S. specs by an outfit in So. Calif. They were not a dealer so I had a bill of sale, a certificate of origin from Mercedes in German, DOT and EPA letters of compliance and a one way trip permit to my state of residence. There were no plates, stickers, or even license plate mounts anywhere on the car. I took a non-direct route of over 2000 miles through three states and in spite of hundreds of cell phone photos and many stops and questions was never ask by anybody about plates or tags. The most frequently ask questions were "What is it?" and "Is it electric?"

Enjoy your trip, Dan

Update: Got the Avion home safely

Hi all. just an update to let you know that I towed the Avion home Sunday with no real problems during the 200 mile trip. I ran with bill of sale/title and no tag. The 34 foot Avion towed like a dream.

Before we left, I did have to put 5 new tires on her and have a big wrecker pull her onto some flatter ground for me (she was blocked up on an incline so steep my TV couldn't get enough grip to pull her up it).

My only concern on this trip was that I was over my TV's Gross COMBINED Weight Rating by 1200 lbs, but I will start a new thread in this forum and post my concerns/questions there.

Thanks again for all your help.

I talked with DMV yesterday afternoon and was told if the Travel Trailer was towed on SC Highways you had to have title, registration and bill of sale.
Also after you get it home you should go to DVM and get a license tag ASAP.
