Question how long is too long?

We bought a new to us (2008 Left Over) pop up at the camping show. We paid for it in cash and now are waiting for the paperwork to register it. The company who sold it to us is from out of state. They have a good reputation but we seem to be waiting an awful long time for the paperwork to come through. When I call them thay state that they are waiting for the Certificate of Origin to arrive from the Manufacturer and that it should be in any time. How long should this take a week maybe 2 but we are oushing a month now. It is still a little cold for camping in it (according to my DW) but I am antsy to get it registered and on the road. Any thoughts?

Usually the certificate of origin is delivered to dealers at the time the RV is delivered. You might contact the manufacturer and find out from them if the certificate has been sent to the dealer they sold the coach to and who that is. You might find out that one dealer took possession from another to explain the delay.

Fire, RV Wizard is correct the MSO should have been delivered with the unit. This doesn't sound right to me, I would ask them why they don't have it. Hopefully they have only sold this unit to one person and that is you!

The above statements are true, but with exceptions. If the dealership carries his floorplan (inventory dollars) with a financial institutuion (bank or money lender) they will hold the MSO just as they would hold the a title for their protection. It can take on average 21 to 30 days to process the paperwork and receive the MSO, this is not unusual, matter of fact more the norm. It is also no unusual that if you paid cash up front the dealer may not have processed the paperwork and payment ASAP. Some dealerships will try to hold the cash in their bank account as long as possible to allow of other overhead expenditures and operating cost associated with doing business....again another standard business practice.
Over all, you said it was a reputible well know dealership, I wouldn't worry about there being a problem. If your temporary license tax exprires they can provide you with a new temp tag. Check with your local DMV as far as paying TT&L or getting an extension, before the delay can cause any penalties and or intrest due to the state for not being paid with in the allowed time frame.
Enjoy your new camper.

I wish I could do a temporary tag. But in Mass unless the dealer goes to the RMV with their paperwork we are canoeing upstream without the paddle. Since this dealer is from out of state it is even harder. I will give them the rest of this week and then I will maybe try calling the manufacturer and see what is happening. If all else fails the AG may be able to help. I don't want to go that far but I spent my good $$ and Now with the issues at the RMV I would like the paperwork so I can spend the eons in line to get it on the road.

MSO

I worked at a marine dealership for a while after I retired. In SC we got the MSO when we got the boat. When we sold a boat we sent the MSO to the department of Natural Resources and they would create a title and send it to the owner or if there was a lien to the lien holder. Again the dealership got the MSO from the manufacturer when the boat was delivered to the dealership.
