Here in Illinois we have to get an emissions test on our vehicles every two years. We have a car registered in IL but is used and stored solely in WI. We just filled out a spot somewhere on the notice, I think, that it was not in the state. Can't remember exactly how we did it. It was years ago. But if we can do it in Illinois you should be able to do it anywhere. ;-)

In Texas it may be cheaper, but still requires a vehicle inspection. They do not do smog down here along the border and I am not sure if the big cities requires smog inspection.

Registration in AZ is cheap, but watch out for that Vehicle Tax Our 2010 Jamboree was about $800 a year when we renewed registration last year.

Arkansas has a permanent license for trailers which does not require renewal, but it does require annual assessment and paying of taxes.

Utah does NOT allow online registration renewals? Same for insurance? As for vehicle inspection, I'd contact the state agency that handles vehicle inspections and play 20 questions. You may have the option of getting an inspection in whatever locality you're in or, Utah may have a grace period for those out of state. Get the name of the person you speak / deal with. A quick search turned up this:

435-764-1737 looks to be the phone# to call.

What's a girl to do.......

Thanks all!!!. I do believe that I must b a resident of that state to register the RV. We have rented our homes in both NM and Utah. So all I really have is a PO Box to forward our mail, And we found out the hard way with renewing our LICENCE that the state will not forward the renewal, so my concern, which is drive the RV back to UT just to get the darn safety inspection done. I will checkout the "Escapee" site, to see what my options are.
Happy Trails
