I've never had any problems with cash. I bought an airplane with cash, $26,000.00. 100 dollar bills.

My recollection is that 10K limit is what triggers bank notification to IRS - wouldn't concern most.

I thought it was banks/lending institutions that had to notify the feds. no problem if buying "stuff" in an alley from a private individual.

I'd find the model and make of what i'd like to have 1st.
Then, i'd contact a dealer or 6 or 8 and work out a deal before i came over.

There can be seasonal differences in prices, but... figure out what you want, buy it, and go on your trip. Saving a few dollars by delaying your trip or changing where and when you want to go really may not be worth it.

if buying from a private seller, make sure you have a clear title, this can be done through the dmv. Also make sure you know how everything operates,this way you don't get someone else troubles. I know it is costly, but yo might want to rent one for a week and drive to the place you are thinking of buying. You can also fly into somewhere, rent a car, go chekc out several in the area. Quartzsite Arizona is getting ready for the annual rv show, they have hotels there also. Good Luck & Be Safe ! ! !

Hi,

thanks für all the postings ! You are fantastic.

We flight in Mai to Boston or Washington and rent for 2 weeks a house. So we can buy everything what we need in this time. In june we flight back to Germany for a week and have the interview for the green Card/Visum. Then the adventure started....

One thing i dont understand. You tell that i go with the seller to his bank and make a Transfer to his account.

How can I make a bank transfer in his bank when ist not my bank?

About the clear title, can i phone the DMV and ask him if the title is ok ?

Thanks
Stefan

We did that last summer for $15k. It was thru a dealer so they had us sign a form that it would be reported to the IRS but since it's all legit, who cares?

You get a bank transfer from your EU bank. You will need his bank info but otherwise, straight forward.

Title is a little tougher as there isn't good cooperation between states. Go with the seller to the DMV to do the transfer is about the best you can reasonably do as there isn't a nation wide clearing house, so there is an off chance it has a lean in another state.
