Liability depends on the state. Here in Nevada, your vehicle insurance covers that, but collision is separate. Call your insurance agent. That can usually be done over the phone.
Also, when you speak with the DMV ask if they can issue a temporary plate for transport and find out what is required. You may only need a faxed copy of the transferred title
and/or a bill of sale.
Finally, I would have the seller sign the title for transfer even if your state doesn’t require it. That way if you move or sell out of state to a state where it is required, it might avoid some future headaches.
Good luck with your new camper!
