Pretty much. We full time and that's the case.

My Dad tried that years ago with his Newmar DP. He didn't use a PO box but an actual address of a friend in Florida. He got away with it for a year or so then got caught and had to pay the California fees and the back fees. Bummer!

This could be looked up on the internet to be sure, but in Florida (my native state), you have to pay sales tax the first time you license a vehicle, but, their is a limit which I believe is $2000 or so. This applies to any car, RV, or boat brought into the state. Once you pay that then you pay just like a resident. I believe mine is around $50 or $60 for a 33 ft Class A 2004 model. The idea is to prevent "snowbird" part time residents from taking advantage of Florida's lower rates. I see taxes and fees going up all over as the economy is down and states are in a deficit. If you even refinance and change the name of the title leinholder, it is several hundred dollars.

My daughter lives in SC SSSSoooo went to the source DMV of SC. Since my MH will be there more then here. Ask if I could reg there. They said yes. Have to have a physical address. insurance sc. sales tax, not to exceed 300.00 and property tax. Haven't found out yet how much those are yet, to see if it's worth it. Boy they just want to keep everyone from using there mh. If they cut these plates in half. More people who are not full timers would reg for the whole year.

We own an RV property in SC and love it, but we will never seek to establish it as our legal residence. I asked the county clerk (each county's mil rate will be a bit different) to estimate what our yearly fees would be for our, at the time, 07 Allegro Open Road and the 07 Jeep Wrangler. The two of them would have cost us $1,800 a year in property taxes, plus the license tag fees (which I don't think were all that much).

I registered my last MH in FL using the Good Sam Mail Service. Good Sam Mail Service. I only used their registration program without any problems. Currently have my new MH registered out of Montana and when we sell our stick home, we will register our it in FL and establish FL residency. Good Sam's Mail Service home page provide guidance on most of the questions you may have.

South Carolina has a personal property tax structure. Cars, etc. are based on 10.5% of valuation x the millage rate. Motorhomes can be reduced by using the "second home" exemption, which reduces the rate to 6.5% of valuation. Still quite high. When we first bought our used '03 American Eagle in '05, the taxes were nearly $2400. Due to the valuation going down each year it is now down to ~$900. New vehicles can be expensive as well. I paid over $600 the first year on my '05 Jeep GC. I believe it was ~$200 last year. Sales tax is maxed at $300 though. Actual plate cost is low though.

Income taxes are also fairly high.

arlinv...wow you all pay this "property tax" every year for every vehicle you own? Our Calif vehicle licenses fees for MH are high. Just got a new 2010 Honda CR-V and the license was $340 for 1 year. MH license is $1300/year. But that is all, no other fees or taxes.

Steve,

The fees/taxes are annual, except the $40 tag fee which is every other year. Doesn't pay to have a large stable of vehicles.

I lived in California until 1990 (since 1955). Moved to SC to get away from the traffic/crowds, and be able to afford a better house. Now live on 11 acres with a 3500sf house that I only paid $300,000 for (now worth $600,000+). Property taxes on it are still probably well below what I would have paid in California. I've found you need to look at the whole tax package before making your choices.

When we moved here most of our expenses dropped in half (insurance, housing, etc.). Even with the crazy rises in cost of oil, gas is still quite a bit cheaper than most states (gas taxes are lower).

Redneck,

Not sure my wife and I could stand to be that close, but MORE POWER to ya!!

Until I traded my truck last year I was paying about the same on it. On the new one it is much higher.
