[grace martin] I hope someone can advise me. We are currently living in NY state but will be leaving the end of March to become fulltime RVers. Since we are selling our house we will not have a permanent residence in any state. Through correspondence with experience RVers it seems like the best thing for us to do is become Texas residences using our mail address with the escapees. (We haven't set up the escapees mail forwarding service yet.) My dilemma is that I don't know the sequence of events to become a Texas resident. What can I do before traveling to Texas? We need to get driverâ€™s license, register our truck and 5th wheel, register to vote, and switch our State Farm insurance from NY to Texas. Can any of this be done from NY? If so, how long do we have until we need to be in Texas to have the vehicles inspected? My biggest problem is that since the 5th wheel is in storage over winter, I have not renewed the NY registration. In order for me to put it back on the road I will need to register it in NY for a full 12 months but will only be in NY another 2 months. Unfortunately NY does not permit less than 12 months registration. Is it possible to register the 5th wheel in Texas before leaving NY? Also, is there any personal property tax or surcharges for bring a vehicle into Texas? Thanks you so much for your help.
