This sounds familiar, did you just purchase it on 9/13 and the trip permit is still valid? If so get into Oregon, then contact the Oregon DMV, and get a 15 day trip permit if you plan on driving.

Did you purchase from a Dealer or Private party?

We dealt with the same issue in early 2019 when we bought our Ram near Everett, 3 day trip permit issued 12/31/2018. Went to local DMV on 1/2/2019 to get trip permit. The selling dealer had FedEx the sale and title paper work to Oregon DMV. We were at the end of our second and last trip permit when we were able to get our Grey Whale plates.

Best advice CALL Oregon DMV.

As others have said - don't sweat it. My wife was wringing her hands because her tags had expired and the smog testing stations were closed in Portland - it's the anxiety of the law abiding citizen. I pointed out that the govt maybe inept but the law enforcement officers have bigger fish to fry. We have at least 10 RV's parked within 2 miles of our house that have people living in them with tags that expired 3 yrs ago.

Call the DMV - unlike the unemployment office they still answer the phone.

Hello,
Thank you all for your input - greatly appreciated!
The RV is in Oregon and is insured.
I had placed a call to the DMV first thing this morning, because of the fires/air quality, all offices and phone customer service are closed today.
I was able to get a VIN inspection appointment for tomorrow, we'll see if it happens! I'll also order a trip permit.

Again, thanks for the input!

Bill
