The "inspection" can be a real joke at some places. A friend of ours took his in last year, the guy walks a circle around it and says - looks like an RV to me and slaps a sticker on it. He checked absolutely nothing, but he made the money for him and the state. I don't disagree with them being required, but at least check things.

None here in the Evergreen State.

Funny though. This state usually will do that sort of thing just for tax $$$.

None in the State of Georgia or Florida either as far as I know. I have owned registered trailers in both states.

NYS requires it yearly, but not many do it. I do it for the measly $6.00 and to CMA.

SC did away with vehicle inspections many years ago due to fraud and consumer ripoffs.

Any tandem axle in Texas needs the inspection,unless you have farm plates. the only TT i have seen in Texas with farm plates,was built to haul horses,and the front section was sleeping quarters .

When I lived in TX back in '67-'72, vehicle inspections were a racket. Even brand new vehicles would have something fail, usually wipers, brakes, etc. depending what the shop wanted to sell. I learned to go to a shop that was failing wipers, then go to another one that failing something else. I would then show the slip from the first shop to the second shop; they would change their mind and pass everything. I would then take the slip from the second shop back to the first shop and get a refund. They were very cooperative when I threatened to file a complaint against them.

With the new one sticker thing they just started in Texas, you don't get a sticker, but you have to have a current inspection in order to register it.

Hmm.. I'm new to TT in Texas, and mine doesn't have one (got used a few months ago) and I have new tags...do I really need inspection too? getting my 27' TT in a inspection area is not going to be simple have to find one with easy parking. uughghhha. THat and the tail light fixtures are really cheap and the bulbs won't work and then you touch the bulb and it works...looks clean contacts and all, but not confidence inspiring...
