p.s. RE THE PLATES.
I bought mine in Reno and didn't worry about the plates. I just towed it home and got them later. Actually, I am a prosecutor and I don't recall the law in that regard, but I would think there would be some window of opportunity for a new owner to get the plates after returning home. Could be wrong about that, so don't quote me! In any event, no one stopped me. I can tell you this little trailer is so much fun!
They allow 20 days after you enter the state. The problem is that the Washington tags ran out at the end of May and as a California resident I can't renew them, so to have any valid registration
I had to do California plates before I returned. I think if they don't come I'll be able to get temp. permits from Washington and Oregon, but I haven't asked- I still have six weeks to get the plates.
