Yes,I Understand That.Its Just That I Thought By Now That All States Required "PROOF OF INSURANCE" Before You Could By Plates.

Thats What I Meant By Lucky You.

Here In Colorado (Denver) You Have To Show Proof Of Insurance Even If You Are Getting Just A Temp Tag For 30 Days.

Come East, I just renewed my tags in North Carolina for $28.00 and the inspection will be $9.00. I had my titled changed to "House Car" motorhome before I even applied for my NC title. I did have to pay sales tax, but the DMV title people looked up the value and it was far below what I paid. I didn't question, but paid and quickly left with my tag.

I put a tag on my 1973 05 about 2 months ago in South Carolina. Paid $ 16.00 in county tax, and $ 25.00 for plate. No wgt, no inspection!!! Only thing I've gotten cheap on this project!!!!

When I went to my county office to pay property taxes so I could get a tag I got a welcome surprise. Only $54 on a 1982 Eagle. Just knew I was gonna break the bank before that welcome surprise. And at the DMV it was the same as Eric's, $25 for the plate. Just a few days prior I stopped at DMV to ask the procedure. When the lady got through explaining the inspection process they were going to put the vehicle through & that I had to have a CDL because it was a bus & so on & so on. Glad I went back on her day off. Told the attendant that I was registering as a motor home. No questions asked. Isn't it amazing how things can change from day to day at government installations.

Recently I bought my wife a small 4 wheeler (all terrain vech) and the state wanted me to purchase a $128 sticker for it.

That dog didn't hunt at all.

I have a NJT Eagle 20 with stock 2 stroke diesel engine. Any experience with smog checks and cdl requirements in california? Thanks, Michael

Michael-

As a matter of fact, we went through the registration process in California about five years ago. After about three hard runs at the DMV, we finally converged at a solid meeting point. Initially, they told me it had to have all the permanently mounted equipment to re-class it as a motorhome. A few supervisors later, I found that all I needed to do was sign a declaration (on a DMV form) indicating my intent to convert the coach and attesting that I wouldn't use it for commercial use. After signing the declaration, I walked out of there with the bus registered as a special construction motorhome.

As far as smog, thus far there's no smoke requirement for these ol' mosquito killers. At this point, the only requirements seem to apply to manufacturers meeting CARB/federal standards. . .so, you get off easy.

As far as licensing requirments, that's a little touch-and-go. The DMV has the requirements posted on-line, but it can be a little persnickity trying to decipher. Here's my personal take on it, but I'm not a resident expert by any means. Technically, if you're 40' or less, you don't need a Class B non-commercial endorsement or physical; if you're over 40', I believe you need both. In the commercial section, there is a requirement for vehicles over 26,000 pounds, as well as an air brake endorsement; although it's in the commercial section, the code indicates (or used to say) "any vehicle". Long-and-short, if you talked to three DMV folks, guess how many answers you'd get?

I'll leave it to the pros from Dover for a final call. If you want to get the best answer, contact your local commerical CHP office and see what they have to say.

Good luck,
