You should be able to get the nesicities for a few day stay at the dealership, most all dealerships have hook ups for you to stay and check everything out before you leave, You should only pay sales tax in the state where you will register it. they will give you a drive out temporary tag that is good for 30 days to get you back home

My dealer I bought from in Ohio had me sign a form verifying to the state of Ohio that I would be paying sales tax in PA. Worked smoothly.

I guess different states do it different ways. In Missouri, the dealer has nothing to do with the sales tax at all. The state takes its bite when you register it. It would be entirely possible (but not technically legal) to buy a camper, permanently park it at a lake lot or on your property, never license it, and never pay a penny in sales tax.

Drove to Ohio from Florida, picked up new camper, drove to Indiana to visit the Forest River plant, made it to southern Indiana to stay in a state park. As a newbie, I already shopped at Walmart for the basics. Kind of learned the new TT on the fly. I guess a lot could have gone wrong but I guess there was always a Marriott nearby. I never stayed or pulled a camper prior to this one.
Ignorance is bliss......but I have fond memories of the trip.
