I just purchased a 2017 Majestic 19g in Everett, WA. The temporary Washington trip permit is valid for 3 days. I'll need to get this 19g registered in Oregon; however, since the world has shut down, specifically the Oregon DMV, do I need to worry too much about the Washington temp permit being expired? The new to me RV does not have plates, just the temp permit.https://www.oregon.gov/odot/DMV/docs/Citation_Moratorium_Memo.pdf
Thanks for any help you may provide to this RV newbie!

Oregon DMV is shut down for phone calls and emails? Try a little harder.

I'd get OR police or highway patrol input, document what they say and keep it in the RV. What about insurance as that would be my main concern?

If I had insurance I'd probably use the RV in OR.

I really doubt any PD is going to tell you or authorize you to operate an unregistered MV on any public highway. The best you can do is get some kind of DMV extension on the temp. Make sure you at least have insurance. If your state requires an inspection that will also need to be addressed.

Not sure if the same is for out of State purchases,but as A CANADIAN when I purchased my RV in Arizona I had to have the dealer drive it to the state line, so as not to pay state taxes they then give a 14 day permit to go to another State or back to Canada

DMVs are revenue collection state departments. They register your vehicle if your paper work is in order, collect big fees and then send tags and plates.

I believe most Oregon DMV offices are open, albeit with COVID restrictions....reservations usually required. Most registration issues can be done on-line. You might take a good look at the Oregon DMV website. To remain legal you do need to get hour RV to Oregon before the Washington permit expires. Once in Oregon I suspect things to be a bit more forgiving if you don't get registered quickly......call or contact them Their customer is pretty good.

Citations for missing registration, plates, etc. will not be issued this year. So you may not need to rush.

That said... Your insurance plan may only cover registered vehicles. Appointments for VIN inspections are booked a ways out, so you might need a trip permit for now, depending on you insurance requirements.

You can buy a trip permit online here: https://www.oregon.gov/odot/DMV/pages/vehicle/trippermit.aspx

VIN inspections can be done at offices with Drive-Up VIN Inspections, or you can book an appointment online:
https://www.oregon.gov/odot/DMV/Pages/Offices/index.aspx

Other than that, all other registration info is on this page:

Or this page, if you did not need a loan to buy it: https://www.oregon.gov/odot/DMV/docs/trooshavetitle.pdf

In Oregon, I wouldn't worry too much.

We ran into this in Michigan. They did something similar. New titles were something you couldn't do online and the next appointment wasn't until Ocober.

That wasn't a big deal in August when we were just doing some local weekend trips (we did have insurance and told them of the situation). But we are about to head out of state for the winter.

Finally got a same day appointment by checking every office within a 3 hour drive each day.

Of course, even during the worst, they kept the lottery offices going.
