No weight limit other than the obvious limitation of 2 axles

The sales tax might be a little high, 7%, but the tags only cost $24.00 per year. Just moved here from Michigan 2 years ago and tags in Michigan would be at least $300.00 per year. The sale tax in Michigan is 6% for everything except food. I will take Tenn all day long........

Technobody,

All of the States in the "lower half" have reciprocal agreements. If a person's license is good in the State he acquired it from it is good in all the other states. So in that sense the requirements meet the same standard as Ontario.
That is not quite true. When I was 20 years old and stationed in California in 1970, I got a Ticket for having an INVALID licence issued in the state of Michigan. California had a special deal for serviceman at that time (Voting age was 21), anyone living in California that was under 21 had to get a California Drivers License. It was in reality just a money grab for serviceman. Got another ticket a few weeks after I turned 21 and the invalid Michigan License was all of a sudden valid. I had not turned it in when I got the California License. Right after the Voting age was lowered to 18 the law was removed from the books. My dad said he had the same problem during WW2 in that California tried to make the serviceman get a license from the state to drive a car or truck using an Army issued license. That BS was quickly squashed. If it was any other state I would expect recripical agreements, just not on the left coast.

Sundancer,
The U.S. Military has always been treated differently in California. Things were basically the same in 1961 when I was stationed there through 1964. I had to put some furniture in storage. I had been out of the state for over a year and they wanted a property tax of $26 for what I had placed in storage and subsequently had removed when I transferred.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
