Place to buy RV stuff without taxes

and preferably without shipping either.

Camping World charges me both.

Need regulator, hoses, sewer kit, etc.

I'm not sure if you'll be able to buy anything, even on-line, without paying taxes. Most on-line retailers like Amazon and Wal-Mart are now charging tax, but still ship for free (if you meet the minimum dollar amount.) The only exception that I know of would be if you order on-line from a retailer who does not have a brick & mortar store in your State.

I found one. E Trailer.com They are out of Missouri so no sales tax.

AND, no shipping charges for orders over $99.

Here is what I ordered. I thought they were very reasonable and I called to verify stock. Glad I did.

They also ship UPS if the weight is over 7 pounds.

All in all, it was a very smooth transaction and I do not feel I overpaid.

Hope this helps.

P.S. The bigger retailers like WalMart have establishments in every state so not surprised there. I think Amazon does too but taxes depend on who is shipping and from where. It pays to shop around. Taxes and shipping can add up.

Amazon is my go too, as well. I have an Amazon Prime account and it worth every penny.

But, if you are buying multiple items, you may or may not come out ahead. You wind up buying from multiple vendors and that takes time, adds risk, and may not save you any money in the end.

Amazon is charging state tax in Texas. Started 2-3 years ago IIRC.

Amazon just started charging state sales taxes in SC this year. They had some type of legal exemption before.

I have a Walmart about a half-mile from my home, and use their free shipping for in-store pickup all the time, especially for camping/RV gear. No minimum amount, either. I just got a 'plug' for the open end of the hitch receiver box on my TV. Paid a whopping $4.88 including sales tax. Free delivery for in-store pickup. Love it, and don't have to pay for Amazon Prime.

I use in store shipping when it is available but they always charge sales tax.

+1 on E-Trailer. They have great service in my experience. I ordered some mirrors from them a couple years ago...

ETA: I'm a verified Amazon junkie. Seriously. I have a problem.
