I live in Mississippi and a title is not required on a truck camper. I’ve had three TCs and not title. My buddy has one same thing no tlitle. It’s considered cargo.

Utah requires titles on camper that are 2015 and newer.
No plate on my camper, it stays on the truck.
The camper is registered separate and I get a little sticker to put in a back window that costs me $10/year.

I went thru the hassle and got a Utah title for my 1995 camper.
I like having proof of ownership other than just a piece of paper signed by the previous owner.

As far as plates, the plate needs to be visible. It does not have to be on the actual truck, just visible and lit up at night, so you put the plate on the TC no matter if the TC needs to be titled or not. Though I have forgotten and left the plate hidden and not had any issues, I even got a fake parking ticket from a ranger (warning parking ticket) and he crawled under the TC to look at truck plate. He did not seem to b concerned that the plate was covered. I usually tow trailer, not that time, so the trailer acts as the plate, though the truck prop needs to display the plate, they can get all info off my trailer...

In non-plate states the TC is just considered cargo, no different than an ATV or your in-laws couch you got suckered into hauling.

In this instance you are buying a CA TC, not an ID TC. It does not really matter where the seller currently lives, because all the paperwork is from CA and since CA is not a plate state (and Im having hard time believing CA is not using this as tax revenue) then there will be no DMV records for the officials to look at. I am wondering how can there be a lien to begin with? No title, no ownership paper trail, no nothing, just some sales receipt from a shady RV dealer. I think you are safe to proceed .

Oregon does, bottom of page 2: https://www.oregon.gov/odot/DMV/docs/OtherVehicleTypes.pdf

There, now you’ve heard of one. [emoticon]

p.s. Since this is on the west coast, it’s just called a ‘camper’ as opposed to those travel trailers some call campers. [emoticon]

I went thru the hassle and got a Utah for my 1995 camper. It took over 3 moths to get one because apparently there are people who work for the DMV here don't know the rules and regulations either.

Every year I pay $10 for one of these stickers. That's all I need.
