Do Alabama RVs require state inspections to be registered?

Hello all I’ve been on the lookout for a class B van RV.

When I lived in Atlanta, GA my car was required to pass a annual emissions test.

What type of test doe’s Alabama do for van RVs?
Here’s what I’m concidering. Thanks for advice TB

In most states, a class B van will be viewed the same as any other motor vehicle on the states highways, and be required to complete the same requirements.
If your cars and pickups have to, the van will too.

Yeah sounded weird state inspection in Bama

curious how difficult it would be towing & launching a 24' cruiser boat from ground the vessel is over 9'

weight of vessel loaded is close to 2500LBs plus a 600LB trailer so it's not real heavey for it's size.
Thanks TB

Probably not but why not check with the Alabama DMV or DOT for an official answer?

Do you live in Alabama? If so, did you do any tests or inspections in order to get a registration for the vehicle you drive now? It will be the same (if any) for the Van.

I live in Georgia, but am one county outside of the metro area where emissions tests are required, so I do not have to do any emissions testing. Georgia eliminated safety inspections years ago, as it really was ineffective at decreasing accidents or doing anything else to improve the public safety.
