The biggest problem I've found is finding a place that you can actually get a trailer in and out of. My old 21' wasn't a problem so much as the new one is. Most of the places in my area are small parking lot / one entrance type deals.

I went to a Quick Lube place on Saturday and parked beside them. They inspected outside. I did check first.

Isn't the inspection like a car. $7.00 at the inspection site and $7.00 added to the registration renewal fee?

Yes-$7.00 for inspection fee but found nothing on the registration renewal that the state sent me to that added another $7.00. my camper registration renewal and sticker was $128.50.

I believe I remember there were taxes / fees that used to be charged with inspection that are no longer charged. Those charges were moved to the registration. I think before, the inspection alone would be a little more than $12.

Since the adoption of no inspection stickers (this year) $7.00 is collected at the inspection place and $7.00 is added to the registration charge which brings the total to the $14.00 previous charge for inspection and sticker. Inspection verification is now done through the internet and a separate inspection sticker is not issued. The inspection can be accomplished within 90 days of when the new registration is due. This is all old stuff now. If trailer type RV inspections (I have a MH) have been different than self propelled vehicles all along then I don't know what the rules changed to, if at all.

I believe they've been the same as cars this whole time and haven't really changed in nearly 20 years. They've required inspection, but very few ever did one. The location of the stickers on trailers made it pretty hard to verify it even had one unless you got pulled over for something. I'd be surprised if they didn't see a 200% increase in inspection fees for trailers since they found a way to actually force most people to do it.

However, whoever and whatever, they get your money. I went to a couple of places that did car inspections and asked if they did RV inspections. The did, and I of course chose the one easiest to get into and out of. They looked at the tires and made sure all the lights worked. Took my money and sent me on my way.
