Cost to Register in Michigan

I am not yet retired, but am hoping to purchase a MH when I do. I am thinking in the 40 foot range and trying to figure out certain costs. I know that different states have their own rates for registration and was wondering if anyone that lives in Michigan could give me an idea of the cost for a new 40 footer. Also, roughly the cost to insure a rig that costs about $200k.

Any help is appreciated.

100,000 sticker price 382/year after 3 years, bit more the first three..You can download the full rates and fees chart from the Michigan.gov web site. Search for either "Vehicle code" or "michigan vehicle code" the fee is set in the code which is part 257 of the Michigan compiled acts.

The copy I have is a few years old but. here is what it contains. The fees may have changed since this was printed:

List Price Tax
$ 0 - $ 6,000.00................................ $ 30.00
More than $ 6,000.00 - $ 7,000.00............... $ 33.00
More than $ 7,000.00 - $ 8,000.00............... $ 38.00
More than $ 8,000.00 - $ 9,000.00............... $ 43.00
More than $ 9,000.00 - $ 10,000.00.............. $ 48.00
More than $ 10,000.00 - $ 11,000.00............. $ 53.00
More than $ 11,000.00 - $ 12,000.00............. $ 58.00
More than $ 12,000.00 - $ 13,000.00............. $ 63.00
More than $ 13,000.00 - $ 14,000.00............. $ 68.00
More than $ 14,000.00 - $ 15,000.00............. $ 73.00
More than $ 15,000.00 - $ 16,000.00............. $ 78.00
More than $ 16,000.00 - $ 17,000.00............. $ 83.00
More than $ 17,000.00 - $ 18,000.00............. $ 88.00
More than $ 18,000.00 - $ 19,000.00............. $ 93.00
More than $ 19,000.00 - $ 20,000.00............. $ 98.00
More than $ 20,000.00 - $ 21,000.00............. $ 103.00
More than $ 21,000.00 - $ 22,000.00............. $ 108.00
More than $ 22,000.00 - $ 23,000.00............. $ 113.00
More than $ 23,000.00 - $ 24,000.00............. $ 118.00
More than $ 24,000.00 - $ 25,000.00............. $ 123.00
More than $ 25,000.00 - $ 26,000.00............. $ 128.00
More than $ 26,000.00 - $ 27,000.00............. $ 133.00
More than $ 27,000.00 - $ 28,000.00............. $ 138.00
More than $ 28,000.00 - $ 29,000.00............. $ 143.00
More than $ 29,000.00 - $ 30,000.00............. $ 148.00
More than $30,000.00, the tax of $148.00 is increased by $5.00 for each $1,000.00 increment or fraction of
a $1,000.00 increment over $30,000.00. If a current tax increases or decreases as a result of 1998 PA 384,
only a vehicle purchased or transferred after January 1, 1999 shall be assessed the increased or decreased tax.
(ii) For the second registration, 90% of the tax assessed under subparagraph (i).
(iii) For the third registration, 90% of the tax assessed under subparagraph (ii).
(iv) For the fourth and subsequent registrations, 90% of the tax assessed under subparagraph (iii).
For a vehicle of the 1984 or a subsequent model year that has been previously registered by a person other
than the person applying for registration or for a vehicle of the 1984 or a subsequent model year that has been
previously registered in another state or country and is registered for the first time in this state, the tax under
this subdivision shall be determined by subtracting the model year of the vehicle from the calendar year for
which the registration is sought. If the result is zero or a negative figure, the first registration tax shall be paid.
If the result is 1, 2, or 3 or more, then, respectively, the second, third, or subsequent registration tax shall be

Plus there is the title transfer fee, and any sales/uses taxes due (six percent) This would only apply to new (to you) or recently purchased vehicles though.

NOTE that the registration fee is a PROPERTY tax per federal rules and thus deductible on your federal taxes.

You are welcome, as I said it has been a couple years but my rig cost me 382 to renew (It is 8 years old) the cost new was about 100K, I'll have to do some research though cause when I did the math it came out to 363 not 382 but then,, I'm sure there is a "Uninsured Motorist" fee I'm not including or some such.

Also.. Long ago and on occasions since I downloaded the Michigan Vehicle Code to my hard drive, makes it easier to find things I need to know.. Has resulted in a few good laughs as folks think they know the code better than my hard drive.. I think the last download was either 2005 or 2011. The last time I had a bit of difficulty trying to find it,, but I found it. I forget if I got to it via the State Police web page or the Senate web page.

Michigan resident for now but the S&B is for sale. Plates cost 600 every year and that's for a cheaper MH. I know some who pay over 2500. I'm thinking I'll have a new permanent residence. Any ideas.

Ohio MH $49.50 RV Trailer $24.50

PA. 8,000 lbs. or less $45.00 8,001 lbs. to 11,000 $63.00 11,001 or more $ 81.00

I don't understand why there is such a big difference between states.

Michigan will rape you on the annual plate fee that is based on the MSRP of your coach, no matter how old it is!!!!!!!!!!!

My 99 cost me over $700 for a plate and that much each and every stinking year, based on a MSRP of $155k. It's out and out robbery. If I could have lied about my model when I transferred at the DMV, I would have.
