Any certified inspection station should be able to do the inspection.

Has anyone in the SA area had this yet and if so where did you take yours ?
Last year we got ours done at Texas RV Supply on Austin Hwy - http://www.txrvsupply.com/ Haven't gotten around to doing it yet this year! They did it with no problem. Give them a call and see what they say.

You will not get a sticker, you will not be able to renew your registration if you don't get the inspection. (They got you)

PhoneDude...the way it works is, if your inspection is current, you just pay the registration. They check the registration sticker through the inspection station computer. All of them (one article said) are tied into the Texas registration computer system. The same goes with your cars/trucks. They scan or check the registration sticker, and if the inspection is good, it's registration only. If both are due the same month, you have to have the inspection prior to registration.

Bottom line, you will pay for someone to inspect your lights whether you like it or not.

Most inspection stations will do the required inspection on RV trailers and it only costs $14.50. It has been the law for a very long time and I would get it done and yes they only check the breaks and lights.

What I find a ironic is that with all the groaning, moaning and complaining about paying for a safety inspection on trailers in Texas. Most of which are about it only covers inspecting the VIN, lights and brakes, Not a one of you have stopped to complain about having to pay the same fee for the same instpection if you drive a diesel powered vehicle in the state of Texas since we don't do emission testing here in state.

From what I understand if they are an official state inspection station they are required to inspect any vehicle or trailer that requires state inspection. They check all the lights, tires and vin #. They also had me pull the safety cable and try to move the trailer to see if the wheels would lock. Oh and one more thing they want to see your insurance for the truck.

Why would you need to get the inspection done twice? Inspections are good for 1year.

My TT came with an inspection in 2013. Then in 2014, I got a new sticker. It has been the law for 50 years or more, but has rarely been enforced. Some places may not be able to do the inspection due to lack of space. Check before you haul the trailer to your normal inspection place. The mechanic only checked my lights and tires when I took mine in.
