In addition to NO inspections in Washington State, I might mention that the annual registration for our 5th wheel is $3 with a $3 processing fee on top of that ...a whopping $6 total.

Our county (Fort Bend) is also under the new smog inspections for Texas. Our station who used to inspect all our vehicles has quit due to the cost of the new equipment ($40,000). We don't know where we will take the 5er to get it done, I'm sure they are going to charge us the higher price on it too. We have had our 5ers inspected yearly since 1982. Most inspection stations just walked around, look at tires, make sure it has brakes, etc and put on a sticker. Ours is in the bedroom window of the drivers side.

Va_Budman, I get ours done every year at HoleyAcres in Woodbridge. Now after May 17th, I may have to look into other options closer to home. Alot, look at as a hassle, but where else can you get the whole brake system checked for $ 11.00

... IF they do the full inspection. Although most folks(above)who have to deal with inspections in their state are of the impression the laws are little more than a revenue source for the state, I have to admit I see the value of having some degree of inspections for motohomes & TT's.
I travel to several Nascar races a year where we camp for several days. You wouldn't believe some of the stuff folks show up to camp in/on/with . "Rolling Roadkill" for sure. Makes you wonder how bad things could be without some type of inspection laws. But I suppose it's the annual hassle of hauling to a place to have it done that is so annoying.
Ahhh, well. Enjoy Partlow. Hope the move and transition go smoothly for you and your family.

In lieu of inspections on trailers I would suggest they inspect, and stop, vehicles towing more than they should. I live near a large lake and you would never believe what people tow their boats with. Actually saw a Honda Civic towing a small cabin cruiser last weekend. I wondered how they get the boat out of the water once launched. Must have found a level launch ramp?

Pennsylvania requires annual inspection on trailers every year if they are over a certain GVW...I think it is 2,000 lbs. Anyway, pop-ups are usually exempt.

I always use the inspection appointment as the time I get my wheel bearings repacked. I have it done every year.

By-the-way...

Please join us at the National iRV2 Rally in Branson, MO this July. It looks like a lot of fun! Branson is awesome! Check the iRV2 Homepage for details.

PA state inspection for my TT was $35. I also had the brakes adjusted and the bearings repacked (not included in the $35).

Rick: I think the inspection requirement based on whether it's equipped with brakes. My Coleman pop-up doesn't have brakes and I never had to have it inspected in the 16 years I've owned it.

Happy Camping!

Va Budman:

I say "fortunately" because years ago, motor vehicles were required to be inspected twice a year (I don't know about RVs though as I didn't own one then). Then the state changed to an annual inspection. However, in doing this, they slapped on an emissions inspection for those that live in certain "urban" counties (the rest of the counties in the state are exempt!). I'm one of those "fortunate" ones to live in one of those counties. It literally doubled the cost of a state inspection because of the emissions test.

I had the TT inspected at a different place last year but I can't find the receipt to see what I paid for the inspection. I think it was about the same price.

Happy Camping!

Even when pulled over towing my car trailer (lights not working--plug was loose), the cop looked right at the inspection tag (which had expired about 3 years earlier) & didn't say anything.

Frank - At one time Virginia also had semi-annual vehicle safety inspections. Went to annual inspection for $10 a number of years ago. Towed trailers with braking systems are also required to get this safety inspection each year.. same price. The additional emissions inspection is for gas powered vehicles in the counties included in the D.C. metro area which (for the last few years) includes my county and implies that I am part of the "Northern Virginia" mindset. (This tends to make me cringe for reasons I will not go into .) The emissions inspection is every two years; costs $20 . My Ford diesel is exempt.

Fatears - In Va., the vehicle inspector gives you a receipt (to further clutter up your glove box) and affixes a sticker on your windshield next to the "County Sticker" (which proves you have paid the astronomical "personal property taxes" - another issue for another time.) For towed trailers, the sticker is placed either on a window on the left side of the rig or on the left facing side of the trailer tongue... this so the State Trooper can easily see it. The sticker on my trailer is on the tongue and I'll be darned if either of the 2 State Troopers who passed me last weekend ever gave it a glance. Oh, and the inspector hands you yet another receipt to further clutter up the inside of the TT.
