How To Buy A Camper From Pop Top Heaven
We sell about 75% of our Campers sight-unseen. For you folks
shopping for a Camper from out of state, buying online or over
the phone can be a new, sometimes nervous experience. We understand
this and want to make your distant-purchase an enjoyable experience.
When you have decided on a vehicle, we prepare a "pre-purchase
video" for you, where we describe in detail every
little blemish that wasn't there when it rolled out of the factory.
This is done by appointment only. We DO NOT deal in frame damaged,
salvage title, storm damaged, or severe accident vehicles.
Just ask for the VIN and check for yourself. We carry nothing
less than the best vehicles available in the USA.
So, How Does It Work Believe it or not,
it's this simple. We try to make the purchasing process as easy
and stress free as possible.

Once you've decided on one or more Campers, email or
call with any questions, or to arrange creating a video
of the Camper for you.
Once you've decided on a Camper, Mary will complete
your paperwork packet, and if necessary, express mail it
to you for signing.
Once your paperwork is signed, you will need to arrange
payment in the form of a wire transfer, cash (in person),
or a bank check. All the required information for
any of these methods of payment is be included in your paperwork
Once we've received payment, and your signed paperwork
packet, we get to work, and you will be notified when your
vehicle is ready for pickup or transport to your door.
Last, our DMV representative will process any required
filings with the DMV, and in the case of California residents,
file your paperwork so you don't need to lift a finger (just
wait for your plates and registration in the mail).
If you are an out of state buyer, your title will be
express mailed to you after any required filings with the
Buyers Outside California You are always
welcome to visit our office and view any vehicle here, however,
if you sign a contract to purchase a vehicle, submit payment
for a vehicle, or take delivery of a vehicle in person at our
Yucaipa California office, you will be subject to California
state sales tax (currently 7.75%). You will receive a credit
for taxes paid when you register your vehicle in your home state.
If you do not want to pay California state sales tax, we can
arrange for transport across the California border, where you
may take possession of your vehicle. Remember, we can easily
arrange to dispatch your vehicle for transport to a licensed
and insured transporter to all lower 48 states and Alaska, border
entries for Canada, or to a port for delivery to Hawaii.
Where To Stay/Flying Or Driving In To Pick Up
If you're flying in or driving a rental car to pick up your
Camper, we recommend the Dynasty Suites in Redlands (800) 874-8958
(if you plan to stay overnight prior to picking up your Camper).
If you're renting a car, we recommend a one-way rental from
Enterprise (909) 797-4995. They have a local office 3 miles
from us where you may drop off your rental. If flying in, we
recommend Ontario International Airport. It's about 30 minutes
from us, and has a shuttle service that comes our way every
30 minutes, or taxi services at about the same rate as the shuttle.
Registration And Title We hold title
on every vehicle we sell, but in some instances, we need to
make changes to a title to correct errors. California residents
will receive a 90-day temporary registration, or current plates.
Out of state residents will receive the title, and a form called
a REG262, which will allow him or her to register the vehicle
in his or her state. If you encounter any problems registering
your Camper we can get what is called a "California title
only" in your name. Of course, we can't do this until the
vehicle is purchased. When a title correction is required, or
a California title only is required, receipt of your title may
be delayed for up to 90 days. We do supply what is called a "trip
permit" which allows you to operate your vehicle until
you receive your title. Some states do not understand the purpose
of the trip permits, so if there is a delay receiving your title,
we encourage you to leave the plastic Pop Top Heaven plates
on the vehicle, and carry your purchase agreement until you
receive your title. Since we are only licensed in California,
we cannot register your vehicle if you are a non-resident.
Shipping To Your Door If you can't make
it out here to us, we can deliver your Camper to you! We utilize
fully insured vehicle transportation companies that deliver
door-to-door nationwide. Delivery time varies, but is usually
no more than a few days from our dealership to your home. We
will present you with an estimated delivery amount, and do our
best to book your Camper for that amount. Payment for
transport is expected BEFORE the Camper departs our dealership.
Shipping Rates Shipping rates
vary by delivery location, and with the new regulations introduced in 2018, can be up to $1.50
per mile plus a one-time $200 fee we charge to cover our costs for arranging and coordinating transport.
This price includes ALL insurance, handling, and
