I don't like paying taxes or fees any more than anybody else,but I have to laugh when people driving $300,000 motorhomes,that use over $.50 of fuel a mile are going to cry and avoid a state over an $18 a year charge.

MotorPro, You are looking at this whole thing from the wrong perspective. It's not what you get while there, it is what you do not get.

Here in South Texas you get welcomed. We appreciate that you have decided to visit us, and spend your money. People buy fuel here, they pay reasonable fees for their rigs, they spend money in our restaurants and visit our attractions and theatres.

Most libraries allow library cards at no charge, allowing free access to the library services and free Wi-Fi. Yes, many people are seasonal, and we look forward to their returning.

While I'm sympathetic to many of the views expressed here, there are some facts that need to be considered in the discussion:

1.This "Seasonal Resident ID" is not a new thing - it is already the law in Nevada and has been for years. The proposal is to increase the fee from $12 to $17 and add an annual vehicle sticker for $18.

2. Having the Seasonal ID exempts one from the requirement to obtain Nevada vehicle tags and driver license after 30 consecutive days in the state, and also other requirements of the Nevada "Fair Share" law. Yeah, I know few of you ever do that, but it is their law (and the law in most other states too). In that sense, the Seasonal ID is actually a benefit to snowbirds. Of course, most snowbirds object to the Fair Share law too, since it requires that those in the state for 31 days or more pay their "fair share" of resident taxes and fees.

3.The amount of money collected probably doesn't even cover the cost of issuing IDs and decals, so this is hardly a money grab.

We spent most of our winter a year ago in Texas and enjoyed being a "Winter Texan" very much. Stayed in AZ for a week and always got the impression we were not welcome to stay and spend our money. I know that half of Alberta goes to AZ but we will not be among them.
As far as the Nevada tax, I find that a bit of slap in the face given the amount of money Tourists leave behind while in this state. When Government needs more money to feed the pigs at the trough, it's only logical to raise taxes. Right?

We have spent the last two winters in the Texas Hill Country and have never felt more welcome anywhere. We enjoy the people (many of whom have become good friends), the atmosphere, businesses that never fail to welcome us to their establishments and thank us when we leave, a county Chamber of Commerce that puts on a small festival for their Winter Texans every February, a library that issues us library cards, reasonable prices, lots to do, and of course the fabulous H.E.B. Supermarkets.

I have always felt that if someone makes it hard for me to do business with them then I will likely take my business elsewhere. That apples to local and state governments also. If they want to charge me a tax/fee to come to their state and spend my money then I will go in another direction. The Nevada lawmakers are doing the Nevada small businesses a disservice.

Actually, this is just more knee-jerk crap.

The bill is targeting those that have stick built, part time homes in the state, not RV'ers.

Make more sense now?

There is no need to raise the NV tax for any reason. In fact the tax should be taken off entirely. Travelers will pay enough to stay in the state that doesn't really welcome you unless you spend,spend, no end. Get rid of the tax, and the attitude and I bet you get more than 18.00 worth of trade from tourists that stay long term. Otherwise, I am out of there.

Nevada has absolutely nothing to offer, in my opinion. No colors, no fishing, expensive golf, transient residents and very few "resorts" with amenities to keep you busy as a true RV'r.

I would not give Nevada the time of day. There are plenty of opportunities for gambling and shows elsewhere. Even the more upscale resorts have little to do.

Winters in Arizona are hard to beat and they have so many "true" resorts, it is hard to choose one.

You really don't need to bash a particular state... Every state has something to offer.
If you don't like it, don't go.
Just to inform you the Nevada State Legislature has ended the 2013 session. AB 405 did not get passed.

Any kind of stereotyping is usually grossly exaggerated, yet I see this kind of attitude displayed even in our own community. I'm a bus driver, DW is a nurse. We drive a 35k used motorhome, and most of the people we meet in the RV parks aren't driving 300k anything.
-
For many of us, those still working and those on fixed incomes, an extra $20 every time we turn around is a major annoyance.
-
If you are blessed with a financial situation that allows you to endlessly absorb extra charges I'd hope you would develop an attitude of gratitude for your good fortune. Laughing at those less fortunate isn't an attractive behavior.
