If you are a resident of Texas, the vehicle has to be registered in the county in which you "live". In other words, if your address is Livingston, you must register the vehicle in the county where Livingston is.

They told me that, too. I "live" wherever my motorhome is parked. So I plan to go to Texarkana. That's where I will live while I get the car registered. They didn't say I couldn't ever move or that I had to be there X number of days. The government just doesn't address the idea of living in an RV in most of its laws. And I may get a Texarkana virtual mailbox for 1 month so they can mail the plates there.

Dakota Post does for their clients, and I think Escapees does as well.

Many states require a VIN inspection before registering an out of state vehicle. Stops stolen vehicle coming in and being "legitimized" by another state, they want to see the vehicle.

Between yesterday when you posted and today, you could have been there, taken care of it, and returned and be drinking a beer right now.

(As if I didn't know that.) Yes, I could if I wanted to be worn out and $200 poorer for gas and hotel, except I wouldn't be drinking a beer because it's not healthy for me. Maybe you like driving 10 or 12 hours, but that's not me.

Due diligence prior to the purchase might have been a good idea. Just sayin'

States require a VIN check but allow it to be done in any state. Any local police dept. can do it though it is usually on certain days and times.
