Registering a SMB from out of state
I am wondering if anyone has had experience registering a newly purchased Sportsmobile if they live in a different state. I live in Massachusetts, but have family in California so my wife and I decided to work with SMB West to get a van. If all goes as planned, we will be picking the van up in February. The issue we have is with registering the van. This is a bit of a long story - apologies:
Due to COVID, we will be driving across the country, not flying. We'll visit my son's family in L.A. before picking up the van, and then after we have it, we plan to spend time with my daughter and partner and go to Yellowstone. We are trying to figure out how to deal with registration for the new van.
Apparently we would get a temporary registration from SMB, but only have a week to get permanent registration. If we register in Massachusetts before we leave, we'll only have 7 days to get the van inspected in Mass. We have an address we can use in California, and could try to register the van in CA, but don't have CA driver's licenses.
My question is - has anyone else purchased a new van through Sportsmobile and dealt with registering out of state, AND taken more than a week before returning to their home state?
Any thoughts / stories / experiences would be appreciated and welcomed!
