Parking without title

You can't take it on any road as it is not street legal. Maybe it could be towed by a wrecker to a storage lot.

Didn't you get a title when you paid the owner? You don't own it until you have a title in hand, signed by the seller.

Don't know if it applies for your state but I got a temporary plate from dmv when I went to register something because seller didn't fill out something on the title or didn't give it to me, 35 years ago so I dont remember exactly. Vermont doesn't title after 15 or 16 years so many vehicles without titles here. If I read correctly your vehicle is a 1992 so it can't be titled in Vermont but they will register it with no problem. I know that NY residents will register a untitled 16 year old vehicle in Vermont to get a legal registration then use the transferable registration to register it in NY and get a new title. And many states have a process to get a title if seller cant or won't produce one.

In Florida they give you a paper tag, but even without that you should be able to drive it to a parking spot as long as you have the paperwork showing it is a new purchase in the extremely unlikely event you get stopped by a police officer. In other states I cannot say.

I am a full timer and use the Escapees SD address. I have purchased vehicles in ID, AZ and NE. The dealer gives me a paper temporary plate for the State of purchase that is attached to the vehicle. I then have 45 days to register and pay the sales tax in SD. I then can transfer to plate of the vehicle traded in to the new vehicle or SD mails me a new plate.

Keep in mind she also said title not registration.  With proper paper work you can get a temporary tag yourself or in some cases a "one trip" tag to move a vehicle. You may not need a cleared title but would need something they will accept which could be as little as a bill of sale.

no title.. sounds fishy.

 

on her part? on the sellers? most likely there, and could be called a scam.

no matter no plates Not allowed on any public street, road, etc.

no title, seller could say rv was stolen, or they had sold her a stolen rv.

be nice if the poster would return.

The first 5th wheel I purchased was from a private seller and the title was at his lender. As soon as my money arrived at his bank he provided me with a bill of sale and I provided him with an address in which to have his lender to send the title. I then proceeded to hook up to the trailer and pull it  several miles to an RV park where I plugged it in overnight ( to charge up the depleted batteries) and then pulled it to a parking lot near my apartment to transfer my belongings into it. I then headed to my next location and finally to South Florida. Through the entire trip I expected to be pulled over at least once, but it never happened. I had the bill of sale in my glove box and a copy of the prior owners registration and a contact telephone number. I was North of Salt Lake City, UT at the start and West Palm Beach , Fl before the title and my license plates caught up with me. I made a few day stop in Iowa where I had new tires put on the trailer. 

I'm not saying you should do that, but..... This was many years ago and I no longer own the truck or trailer used in the event.
