Umm, I believe Donna was right -- The carbon discussion was drifting off the RV tax question into other areas. OTOH, this discussion has stayed on its original topic.

Thanks Pete, and yes we're talking about licensing and titling a trailer. Off-topic stuff quite often starts down the road to politicin! And we don't do politicin' !!

from the Use Policies
Also, any Name Callin', Flamin', Preachin', Politicin', or Sellin' will be removed.

Thumbs down

I decided to bump up this discussion so new people registering their older trailers in CALIFORNIA can see what they have to contend with. I tried to search the California DMV website, and the information is scattered in several different areas.

I just hope no one else has to contend with what I had to contend with! (Mistake of trying to register the trailer while I was out of state.) However, now I do have PTI.

I had a completely different experience... After we brought home our new 19' Scamp, went to DMV to register it and they TRIED to give me a PTI at the DMV. Silly mi, I correctred them and told them it didn't qualify. But, then, I have always FIRMLY believed in honesty and Integrity. I **NEVER** have a problem correcting a clerk who gives back too much change. Same thing.

That said, DMV **CAN** be quite the pain - I would say in the neck, but I actually have a much lower opinion of them. I DRAGGED the trailer 25 miles down to the DMV office... TOLD them it was there... and they did their thing paperwork thing... and then a MONTH down stream, got a letter from DMV saying that I had to have the VIN verified. I could either bring it in to DMV or have a Peace Officer do it. I downloaded the forms, and the Police in our small town do VIN Verifications for free on something like Wednesday afternoons. So I just puilled it over to the local Police Officers' Station and didn't have to go ALL THEY WAY back to DMV. AND Didn't have to deal with the lines and the "poop".

If you are registering in California, TAKE IT WITH YOU and insist that the clerk perform a VIN verification while you are there.
