I drove up from Louisiana in my TOAD with the tow bar in the trunk. Loaded up the car, bought what else I needed from WalMart and made a 10 day trip. No problems at all, with two dogs no less.

The hubs and I are heading out to do this on Saturday! Driving from CO to OH to pick up our new TT. We are going to stop Saturday in St. Louis and head to OH on Sunday. Pick up TT first thing Monday morning, then hit the road by noon, stopping in Des Moines that night. I'm too lazy to camp in it that first night, so I found a hotel in Des Moines that had parking to accommodate our rig.

All good ideas and thank you!

This started out as a fly in to purchase the C, spend two or three nights locally to check the unit out, then head straight home with just the basics. Tickets from here to there are really cheap at about $ 180 with all taxes and fees, and about 2.5 hours.

Dealer will pick up at airport.

Mapquest shows the driving distance time to be about 14 hours. So a rental for two days plus gas, lodging and food would be much more expensive. This is why I thought about boxing up some RV supply and shipping it up ( Lynx levers, basic tools, flash light, first aid kit, gloves, pillows, towels, extra clothing, ect) extending the trip home to visit friends and not just a drive straight back.

Either way it will be an adventure .....and I will try to make it fun !

I bought mine in Ohio I paid sales tax in Pennsylvania when I registered it. I got 90 day tags from dealer so I'd have enough time to get Ohio title to transfer to pa title to register.

We flew out to RVW in Ohio from Oregon, packed a few essential then purchased a starter package from RVW. RVW picked us up at the airport and took us to their dealership where we did the PDI and signed papers. We stayed at the local campground for a day to make sure everything worked before heading home. It was a long drive but I'd do it again.

You may find that the extra baggage charge is WAY cheaper than shipping a bunch of gear, especially if you can keep it under the usual 50# limit for checked baggage. Shipping prices have gone through the roof in recent years. A loaded box of equipment could cost you $50-150 to ship. Good luck and have fun!

I had RVW deliver mine, and it was worth every dollar. I don't know why people are shocked at paying sales tax. If you have to pay vehicular sales tax when you buy a vehicle in-state, then you have to pay for an out-of-state purchase.

I flew in and bought also. If your dealer knows of your intentions of sending a package and agrees that will work, then you got a great plan. Like you said, kick back and enjoy the trip back home and many more.

The problem comes in to play when they don't take enough sales tax out, as in my case. I'm in OH and bought in MI. I think they only had 5.25% sales tax and I'm at 7%. When transferring the title to OH, I had to pay the extra 1.75% sales tax. On a MH, it can add up.
