Check your visit time permits. You may be the same as Canadians & a few other places permited 180 days in a 12 month period, not calendar year, visa free.

No, you cannot get off the plane, catch a taxi to a dealer & drive off in your own RV in a few hours. Not if it is a one time trip. Not if it is multi trips over multiple years. There are a few hoops to jump through.

This should help get you started in the correct direction.

https://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/help/moving/Pages/new-residents.aspx

NOTE: A valid license issued by a government agency from a U.S. state or another country is required to drive legally in North Carolina. North Carolina law enforcement authorities do not recognize international driver licenses.



https://www.protectiveagency.com/services/auto-insurance-north-carolina/foreign-license-insurance/

Foreign drivers must have either a licensed issued by the state of North Carolina, or one issued by their home state in the U.S. International driver’s licenses are not honored in North Carolina. So, if someone is only visiting the area and not planning to stay for an extended period, they should look for other forms of transportation during their visit to North Carolina. In most cases, if you have an international driver’s license that is up-to-date, that license is valid for up to one year after the date you entered the U.S.

Sorry PastorCharlie that would have to be the least helpful advice to get anyone started on the right track. I am also from Australia and have visited and lived there for several years. And newer held a American license been pulled over a few times had people run in to me and newer had a issue.

I cannot answer your questions but perhaps I can give you somethings to look at. I assume you are past the bearing and raising years and perhaps even have kids out on their own, if so, talk to them and ask about their friends who have had an OE. For those of you who do not know what OE means, Overseas Experience. We have hosted quite a few kids from NZ during their OEs and they have bought and sold vehicles here and in Canada, it isn't rocket science.

There are networks of younger folk that have or are planning on visiting and buying here. Google and YouTube are your friends for finding help in this and many other ways.

You don't need to pay a fee for this help, Uni's have a lot of kids who can help.

There are folks on this site that are doing what you are thinking of, perhaps some of them will chime in and help. A lot has to do with how you title your enquirers.

We only know one couple living in Oz who have done this and they may be able to help, if you give me an email address in a PM, I'll ask them to respond to you. Several of their extended families have done OEs and purchased vehicles here and sold here.

Hopefully, everything goes well for you.Before you get here, and while you're here, come back to this forum and let us know where you plan to go and we can give you advice on what to see and where to stay. There are all kinds of campgrounds. Some people like me prefer state and federal campgrounds because they usually have more room and cost less than many private campgrounds. We can also suggest routes which can avoid heavy traffic. This country is huge and there's a lot to see. Hope you enjoy your trip and we'll be glad to help you if we can.
