[QUOTE=GMike A;581645]Just took my Casita
17' SD in for inspection for plate renewal as the letter indicated that " a passing vehicle inspection is required to obtain registration
blah blah blah". So I took it to a local place and gave him my insurance card. While I was there the local state DMV inspector came over to watch the Penzoil guy. I happened to mention that the dry weight
of my camper and he told the guy to stop inspecting and that anything under 4800 was exempt and that this Penzoil guy could not inspect it nor did it need approval. I told him the letter said that it did need an inspection and he said no. I asked for his business card and he gave it to me. I went back home, got online, and did the texastwostep.com. Gave them my $60 bucks, Inspection or insurance was never mentioned or flagged and they took my money and hopefully I will get my new sticker in a week.
Anyone else in Tx had a similar experience with their small travel trailer?
This is correct. Actually, all you have to do is produce vin
, and ownership. Insurance is not actually required on the trailer you have. It is covered most of time while in tow, by insurance companies. I have ins. for other things that can happen.
A big trailer or 5th wheel does..have to go thru inspection, not our eggs due to weight being lite.
I just take my tag number every year to DMV and get the new reg. .
I do not even take the form the states sends out, just my current tag number and pay my fee. I am in Texas
