I am retired Law Enforcement and at least in New York and I assume (Yes, I know what happens when you assume) many other states as long as there is no "Intent to Defraud" there is no law prohibiting an out of state vehicle registration. As long as you comply with YOUR states insurance requirements I see no real issues.

Corporations use "Business Friendly" states all the time to register their businesses.

Something seems off..

For fun, go here to estimate your yearly costs for registering in Colorado.

Larimer County Vehicle Licensing / More Info

On my 5th, which is admittedly on the small side and a couple of years old, the fee was estimated to be about $300. Sure, a lot more than the $21 I pay in Minnesota, but not the huge amount originally noted. It would be interesting to hear what others with longer/heavier/more costly fifths arrive at.....

I just ran through the estimator for Larimer country (which is known to be cheaper than Denver) and my Jayflight came in at 590 dollars. So for my neighbors 5th which was almost 4 times the cost (and triple the weight) of my Jayco, I can see it easily hitting 2K a year.

I just paid my registration for my 2014 Ford Focus (not a very expensive , tiny commuter car) was 305.26 just for that one. Looking at the bill right now.

I had no issues registering my boat and snowmobile trailers in Michigan, I'm an Illinois resident. It's a little different situation though as I primarily use both of these trailers in Michigan. I also have the boat and snowmobiles registered in Michigan. It worked out great for me as Michigan has a lifetime plate for trailers....I think they were both $75.

It's on my short list for sure. My wife is from there and would be an easy sell as long as it's not Houston.

I've been doing more research on the whole registration dilemma. This is one of the few areas where full timing would make things a lot more straight forward. I may be able to work something out in Wyoming, they have a favorable situation and I'm a half hour from there, do extensive camping, etc. Not meaning to come across as a cheap skate, just tired of getting excessively violated in the pocket book. This is a great state for my lifestyle, but they really stick it to you in this area.

Wow, finally something that is cheaper in Canada. Our Ontario auto/truck/powered RV registrations are C$108 a year (US$83). But our trailer plates are a one time fee only of C$59 (US$45); that's all, they never expire!

Flapper, I think you might have your numbers flipped. I have only paid $12 a year after the first year.

I have friends that have trailers and cars register in Wisconsin and live in Minnesota. No issues, one of them does bring her classic Mustang home to Minnesota during a good part of the summer. The rest of the time it's in Wisconsin.
