Hello, we are thinking of purchasing an rv that has a title

Resolved Question:

Hello, we are thinking of purchasing an rv that has a title as parts only it is now in an auto dealerships name they say that the title stays in that name and we purchase the rv only with a bill of sale for parts only because that laws is that it can't be retitled due to the parts only factor is that true? I am in Massachusetts. Also if we restore the rv can it then be titled as road worthy

Under MA law a parts only title can NEVER be retitled, thus if you purchase the vehicle it must only be used for parts and you can never obtain a title on it.

Is the law the same in Connecticut
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 8 years ago.
Yes, any title that is parts only will not be retitled as anything else.

without a title can the person who is selling the rv state he still owns it or will the bill of sale be enough and can we place the rv without a title on a seasonal lot at a campground
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 8 years ago.
You can state you still own it, but it cannot be registered or driven on the roads without being registered. You can use it as a stationary camper.
