Dang you guys are like a bucket of cold water...considering a job offer in UT and after reading this thread went to see what their requirements were...

Wow..$200 for a new car, $100 for my 11 year old truck and $180 for my HTT...not to mention emissions & safety inspections for my truck...

Ohio's like $55 for a car, $80 for my truck and another $45 for the HTT...

Wonder how long I can use the Ohio plates

Thought would resurrect this post since I finally got around to registering our TT.

725.00$ I was actually bracing for more...

Guess i'll keep it titled here in CO.

Wow you guys get stroked with all these fees. In Michigan I paid $180 for the camper plate and its called a permanent plate so it never has to be renewed, we also don't have any city, or county bullcrap annual fees either.

What I'd be worried about is Insurance. Mine is registered in Florida but stays in Florida. I remember the insurance company indicated the unit has to be in the state it's registered the majority of the time. That's what the premiums are based on. So it seems to me if that's not the case, it's just more leverage for the insurance company to deny a claim if something happens. It's seem like your Dammed any way you go.

The way I see it, they tax you here, they tax you there. They have to get the revenue from someplace, so if they give a break on your RV or MH, then they hit you harder somewhere else. I just pay and don't worry about it.

RV sales have been up every year since 2007. Maybe some of the cheap states will suddenly realize that they are missing out on a potential tax windfall.

Yeah, I hear ya. Sure seems to work that way. My wife lost her job a couple weeks back so these 700 dollar charges aren't that welcome at the moment, but at least I have a second home if I need it

My camper is parked in a secured lot south of town, I would have waited to register until spring since it's not being used, but then they go after you for back taxes and penalties. It's all a big racket in my opinion, but I try not to complain too much about our first world problems

And just to be not all doom and gloom about it, I do get to write off some of that on my income taxes this year.. spend a dollar, get a quarter back. It's almost like having a rewards card.

You wouldn't like California or Colorado much. Plates here in Ca are based on the vehicle's current value. It's a huge tax. New $32k car is going to cost somewhere upwards of $600-700 to register first year. A declining ripoff as the years go by. Motorhome is about the same. TT a fair amount less, likely $300-400.

A lot of people in KS register their boats and RV's in OK due to high personal property taxes. OK will register it with no problem even if you are a KS resident. My annual property tax for a new F-250 is $1200 per year. The personal property taxes on things are so high in KS that it discourages the purchase of new or encourages people to register in OK. For 2 vehicles I pay $2000 annually for personal property tax. Needless to say what I do with the boat and RV.
