Hello there --
The executor of your mother's estate (your father's sole heir) must sign the title of the mobile home over to you exclusively. There is a procedure to follow through the Texas DMV to have the estate sign over the motor home to you. You should check with the DMV, because it may have to be signed by your mother's heirs as the administrator of her property or her estate. However, here is the EXACT form that you need to do this with instructions set forth at the second page. Your Mom should have done this while she was alive, however, if your sisters and brothers are willing to swear that there is no probate estate for your mother and/or it is just a small estate affidavit, then they should be able to sign this paperwork for you so that the title ends up in your name ONLY. Unfortunately, you will have to wait until a new title is issued in your name alone before you can present it to the insurance company and tell them that all estate matters have been sorted out and a check can be issued in your name alone. While it may get a bit complicated with the DMV because of the two estates (they might require that your mother's administrator sign it over to her and then to you -- which seems silly, but you never know).
Here is that link to the form: http://file:///C:/Users/marym/Downloads/VTR-262%20(1).pdf
