Fatears: Pennsylvania places an inspection sticker in these places as "proof":

Motor vehicles: lower left (driver's side) of the windshield.

Trailers: on the left side at the front of the unit . If there's a window in that area, it's placed there.

Motorcycles: on the rear fender (I think).


Va Budman: You can have up to three stickers in the lower left corner of your windshield in PA.

1. inspection sticker
2. emissions sticker
3. weight class sticker (if it's a weight class 2 or higher.)

Like you in VA, diesels are also exempt from emissions in PA so I only have 2 out of the 3 stickers.

Happy Camping

I take my TT to a auto shop about 2 miles from me. They do a good inspection. Check all lights, brake actuator, tires and all brake linings. They really go over the TT as much as they can which I like. I know inspections can be a pain but if they find something wrong it keeps me safe.

Washington State has got'a be the best - no inspections ...registration & tab fees are VERY reasonable ($33 our 5th wheel) ...top notch roadways ...no state tax on your earnings ...beautiful state ...beautiful women ...oops! I'd better quit while I'm ahead.

P.S. I was born and raised in Bristol, VA/TN, however, for the above reasons, I would never move back to Virginia.

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.

Mississippi recently stopped requiring the state inspections. There is still a tint law though.

I don't agree with stopping it. It was only $5 per year and it kept a lot of vehicles off the road that were dangerous!

In Louisiana it is a joke outside the New Orleans area (they have smog inspection endorsement stamps on their inspection stickers). For the rest of the state it is blow the horn, check the turn signals and pay $10 for 1 year, or $20 for 2 years. The 2 year option is something new they started offering 3-4 years ago, the only bad thing about it is the adhesive lets the windshield stickers starts peeling up after 10-14 months (sometimes less). Technically there is also supposed to be a brake test drive which usually amounts to pulling the vehicle in from the parking lot to the inspection bay, although if the state is cracking down it might mean a loop around the block. The real hassle is the state will not allow stickers to be issued on days after it rains, in theory to do with the brake test or when the pavement is still wet, and it rains a lot in Louisiana. Personally that point has never made sense to me, if the brakes were to perform well enough to pass the test in the rain, why not issue the sticker. Most places that do cars will also do motorhomes unless they have air brakes,in which case it must be done by some places that does commercial trucks, and then the inspection is a little more involved.

Here's the site where you can find who does Texas inspections. We've had ours done at a truck stop which is great for a big RV.

https://www.dps.texas.gov/RSD/VI/VIa...tationLocator/

As a side note.... for those full-timers or wanna-bees....if you have domiciled in Texas you don't need a yearly inspection if you don't stay in the state. If driving through you have a 3-day grace period before having to get the inspection. Smog inspections are just for the big cities.

Do your registration online and there will be a place to check that you're traveling and therefore, no inspection necessary.

$16 for a MH is all the state allows them to charge. $51 is for a large truck. I just took this from the Virginia State Police page.

The maximum inspection fees are as follows:

$51 for each inspection of any (i) tractor truck, (ii) truck that has a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,000 pounds or more, or (iii) motor vehicle that is used to transport passengers and has a seating capacity of more than 15 passengers, including the driver.

$12 for each inspection of any motorcycle.

$16 for each inspection of any other vehicle, including trailers and motor homes.

Perhaps your 5th wheel does not need an inspection, but I for sure know that my 2005 Class A DP needs one every two years, as did my previous 1996 gasser.

In IL no inspection is required for a travel/5th wheel trailer.

In Georgia, we don't have any inspections except for emissions in the 13 counties comprising Metro Atlanta area. The emissions testing is $25 a year for those who live in those crowded counties. For the other 146 counties, we just have to pay $20 a year for a tag.
