Washington requires you to license and register a truck camper.

Only few states require TC registration and none on West Coast.

Only one of three states on the west coast do NOT require registering your TC.

As usual the subject got sidetracked by side observation and not staying on the main subject.
Registration, or not, no state require registration in less than 9 days, so very unlikely that even in the state where the TC registration is required, the camper in question was registered.
Meaning dealer could "work out" putting it back on lot as new.
Why he did otherwise? Do the math.

Pretty big assumption there. All new vehicles get a temporary when you leave the lot. These days I'm pretty sure the registration is submitted electronically and within hours if not a day or 2. At least in Oregon that’s how it goes.

We got our rig from someone who took it out three times and the wife vetoed the TC. My wife had been looking at truck campers on craigslist for years and pulled the trigger quickly when she saw it.

Talking about buying on impulse?
But how much off MSRP the 9-days used cost?


....do "truck campers" have to be registered and titled in the state where that 9 day purchase was made ?


I know in Tn, I never registered my 2006 Okanagan 811-SL. (Paid cash at the dealer out of state. Saved on sales tax also.) Was told I did not have do it.As it did not have to have its own tag. Used it until 2012. Sold it with the open title. And bought a 11 day used HeartLand LandMark Key Largo. Guys wife did not like it. They had it 9 months. Was used one week, then the second trip of 4 days.
Was inside a climate controlled building the rest of the time. Love the room, love the camper. Hate the room and hate the camper.[emoticon]

Want my Truck camper back again..

I was going off of Adventurer buyers guide by Truck Camper Magazine which I believe is more accurate..This is the lightest 8' w/slide that I know of but without popular options.

*Adventurer 86SBS: dry weight, 2,977 pounds + 38 gallons fresh, 316.9 pounds + 6 gallon full hot water heater, 50 pounds + 2x 20-pound full propane tanks, 40 pounds + 2x batteries, 130 pounds + stuff, 500 pounds = 4,013.9 pounds


It already has 500 pounds of stuff but no AC etc.


I just purchased an 2018 Adventurer 80s that only weights 2200lbs dry. Has everything I need such as slide out, AC , WetBath, fridge.
