My mistake. My inspection runs out the end of this month, my registration expires the end of November. I was told that to be legal I would have to have it inspected by the end of this month and again within 90 days of the November expiration to be able to get it registered in November, I was told wrong. I got it inspected today, the inspector said it will need to be reinspected before renewing registration for November 2016. I can ride free for almost 8 months in 2016, after that they are tied to the same month. They checked VIN#, lights, tires, and had me pull the brake away cable and try to move the trailer. All for $14.50

Isn't that how our new Texas Inspection/Regrisation program is supposed to be phrased in? I admit that ihave read about how it works,but don't fully understand it yet.

It's a small thing... 15 minutes and $14.50... especially if you do your own maintenance and keep your trailer up to snuff.

It's a pita is all. 10 miles to the nearest inspection joint (aasuming they do it) 4 trailers all different dates.

They should make the inspections good for 3 years.

My 2 cents...and yes I can beat a dead horse.

To RKR, I had my previous Toyhauler inspected at Crestview RV Super Store in Selma, drove in, requested the inspection, they checked insurance, lights, tires, etc., put the new sticker on and away I went.

Thanks. I still haven't done it. Been too busy but I'll give these two places shout and see who can get to it the quickest when I get time.

RKR, I have found that Texas RV Supply is friendlier to work with than Crestview. Have used both but last two visits to Crestview (inspection and parts) were like I was a bother being there.

Texas RV always willing to bend over backward.

You are correct you will not have to have it inspected in Nov. However; I thought autos and rv's were the same price for inspection. If that's true you paid to much for the inspection. It should have been $7.00 at the inspection site as of March 1st. Maybe trailers are always more. After re-registering you can discard the inspection sticker also. Your next inspection will be due before re-registration in 2016.

Update FYI,

Anything less than 4500 lbs (trailer plus capacity) and farm tags do not need inspections.

Yeah, It might be a pain, but it's the law and has been for many years. The only difference is now you need the inspection before you can get your tags. To make it more convenient, I plan to do the inspection while going to the camp ground. That way I will save one hookup for just going to get the inspection only. It would be a good idea to call ahead to make sure the place can do the inspection.
