Legal in Texas

Well everybody, Woo Hoo.

I'm legal. I just got my plates and sticker, ready to hit the road.

The requirements were four of the following: Conversion with toilet, separate AC and/or heater, 110 VAC, permanent cooking area, running water, and permanent sleeping. In addition, you need proof of ownership, a weight ticket, a safety inspection, and insurance. To prove you have four of the required items, you must supply pictures of the conversion.

Well, I completed all of the requirements and applied for title and registration.

We too will be changing our "domicile" to TX and using Escapees mail forwarding. But we will be moving there as well (unless things change). I like that I won't have to either pay TX state income taxes but by staying in TX, I won't be paying "double" taxes as a non-resident in a taxable state. Go to escapees and download the free "How to Become a Texan" pdf off their website. I think there may be a few new wrinkles that are addressed in the forums. The first one is the newest but the second one is pretty current as well.
