I took mind to the local Ford dealer. They check the lights, drive across the parking lot to check the brakes and that is it.

Re-register it in OK. We don't do inspections, they went out about 10 years ago. The reason for doing away with it was, it was an unnecessary burden on vehicle owners because most (if not all) "crashes" were NOT caused by some defect (an inspected item) on the vehicle.
We actually have a few good lawmakers here in OK. I did say a few.

An RV doesn't require a commercial vehicle inspection. You probably can't get one, since it's not a commercial vehicle in the first place.

Charlie I take mine to the Ford (I have a V-10 Ford Chassis) Big Truck center for a lube oil and filter (40.00) and inspection (39.95-I'm in the DFW area, non rural) here in Arlington, Don Davis Ford.

If you have a Ford Chassis search for your Ford dealers and call them to find out where the nearest big truck center is....

Hope this helps!

I live in Houston and my gas Motorhome does require the emissions test in addition to the safety inspection. I tried checking Ford Dealerships and finally found one in Houston that would do the emissions test, but it was about 40 minutes from my house. The RV Dealerships in the area didn't do emissions testing. So I started calling around to places that did state inspections for cars and found the 2 closest to my house both said they could do an RV. I took it early in the morning to one of them and they had me pull up next to their bay. They were able to run the cable in the drivers window and hook it up. We did go for a quick drive to test the brakes, but they asked me to drive and just rode along. It couldn't have been easier.

Our area has no emissions test. When we had a Ford chassis MH I took it to the local Ford dealer. Our 2 diesels have been inspected by a local shop that sells tires, does general repair and state inspections. They tell me to just get the MH close to the front of a bay.
