I am going Friday afternoon to try and register and get tags for it in Florida. I researched the law and called the state office to find out what I needed because the local office gave me all the wrong info. Seems that Florida does not title "travel trailers" - small campers weighing less than 2000 lbs. They just tag them -- and of course, tax them. The camper I bought does not have a title -- but I do have the bill of sale and a certified weight slip so I SHOULD be ok but who knows!
Has anyone had an experience getting a tag for a camper in FL?

Well, I called Tallahassee BEFORE driving 2900 miles to pick up my Shasta baby with the understanding that I only needed a Bill of Sale. After 45 minutes arguing and looking at the statutes, it appears that I need a bill of sale and registration if there is not title. Now I need to get a registration or title from the seller. He is going to go to his local DMV in Michigan to see what he can get. Problem is he never registered the camper before selling it to me. So I am hoping he will be able to get one now.
