Buying a motorhome in Santiago with CALIFORNIA papers... (Sonstiges)

Hi Du and Nica,

we bought our pick-up with camper in Santiago (also with a California plate) and didn't have any trouble crossing borders between Chile and Argentina several times. We also have the original documents and a poder of a notary.
Since we need to go back to Germany we are selling the camper mid-March in Santiago and it is still availabe. Maybe you are interested? http://panamericanaforum.org/index.php?mode=entry&id=22800
Do not hesitate if you have any questions.

Hello everyone,

We are in Santiago and we are looking for a motorhome to buy so we can start fulltime RV living and travelling [1].

A few minutes ago we caught a classifieds-like advert for a motorhome being sold near here for a very low price: it's a very old one but we think the vehicle would suit us, and the seller swears "everything works", and presents as the sole reason for the low price the fact that the vehicle has a CALIFORNIA (ie, USA) title.

We've read about people in our situation (ie, foreigners) buying foreign vehicles in Chile and being able to drive them around with the original documents plus a "poder" (which we understand is some kind of notarized document where the seller declares we are now the legal owners of the vehicle), but how well does that work? How could it restrict us? Anything in special we should pay attention to? We will of course subject it to a complete mechanical inspection, but we are really worried about the documentation part...

Thanks in advance for your help,
Du y Nica.
