Having lived in Maine and being familiar with their taxes I will warn you that Maine has one of the highest overall state tax rates in the country. Not only in the form of the sales and personal property tax but income tax as well.

When I moved to Arizona I was shocked at the difference. The old Yankee work ethic is long gone and it seems people there work only as much as they have to and depend heavily upon unemployment and social programs.

We lived lakeside in a small community between Bangor and Ellsworth. Every year we prayed that summer would fall on a weekend.

Laws vary from state to state..

When you say you are moving to Maine, Are you goign to live in Main more than 1/2 of the time? Are you going to WORK in Maine?

If you are moving to Maine and working there then odds are the law requires you to transfer your vehicle registration with haste (ASAP). I stress odds as I do not know the Maine code.

However if you spend more than half the year (at least 181) days "on the road" out of state. Well then South Dakota is one of the 4 states that do not require you actually LIVE there to hold residence there. Check out MySouthDakotaAddress or companies like them for more info.

Note the six months thing is a general guide, it too varies from state to state (As evidenced by the South Dakota law).

Just remember.. The closest thign to the gestapho... The tax man.

I have had a south Dakota license and residency for the past 5 years. So I have established a record. I will not be working in Maine. I am thinking about storing the motorhome in New Hampshire. What do you think?

Are you actually moving to Maine full time, or will this be your "summer home" that you live at only part of the year? That is the real question. If this is your full-time home then anything you do to avoid the taxes will actually be tax evasion and can get you in a lot of trouble.

Consult a lawyer. Spending a couple hundred now could save you thousands down the road (pardon the pun).
