If the state allows you to buy/sell two MHs a year, HOW can you operate without a dealers license?? - Posted by George Dean

It seems that you can’t operate a MH buying/selling for profit business WITHOUT a license! (PLUS, there is the disadvantage of not being able to use the installment method for sales.)
Here in Texas, I have been told the limit was two MHs. I know for cars, its 4 cars a years.
Additionally, as with cars, a curbstoner can simply “jump the title” never actually taking possession of the vehicle. the seller signs the seller spots on the title and the new buyer will sign the buyers spot on the title AND the curbstoner legally never had possession of the car. the curbstoner bypasses paying sales tax and gets around the 4 car limit. Of course this is illegal but its common practice in the automotive industry. Is this common practice in MHs?
Many times the state simply does not have the resources to enforce the law.
Has anyone ran into problems?
Does anyone have a Texas License they would lease? (Heck, would anyone be interested in leasing a MH license for a few hundred a month or a couple hundred per sale?)
