We are in the process of purchasing a Class A from a private seller in Mississippi. I have thirty days from date of purchase to get it registered, here in Texas, where we live.

My question is...How or what do I need for license plates to travel back to Texas if the seller wants to keep his?

I'm sure someone out there has had the same experience... Please share.

Thanks for your responses.

You will ned a temporary tag to use for transport home. Best is to call a local tag/dmv for Mississippi and ask them.

When we did that from Texas we just drove it home to New Mexico. We had all paper work and did not have an issue. As stated you could call and ask and answer will be to purchase a temp tag. We travel 1 day on the first one and two days on the second purchase from Colorado.

Go down to your local County Tax office and get a 30 day temp plate. Texas offer this. Doug

TxDMV issues a 30-Day Permit for the temporary movement of a vehicle subject to Texas registration laws. A 30-Day Permit is valid for a period of 30 days from the effective date reflected on the permit. No more than three 30-Day Permits will be issued per vehicle.

Or just get a bill of sale and signed Mississippi title from the seller and drive it home. If you get pulled over show them your paper work

We purchased ours in NC and lived in CT at the time. Took a trip to the NC Motor Vehicles with the original owner where they transferred the title and gave us a temporary plate. Very easy and pretty inexpensive transaction. I did need to show NC insurance, which I had gotten prior to flying down there.

Took plates from old MH and put them on new MH. Drove from Wisc to Mo. Once home officially transferred plates at same time applied for title on the new MH. Of course transferred insurance before starting trip home and had registration for the old MH with me if needed.
