plates oh my

Well a couple of weeks ago. We traded our lemon 5th wheel for a 2000 mountain aire DP. Just love it. Went to get my plates. I'm rarely at a loss for words. But I couldn't even inhale. Had no idea plates were so much. I know. should have looked into that, and if you can't run with the big dogs stay on the porch. And I wouldn't mind if it was a one time plate. But ever year. That"s right up there with buying tires. I mean who like"s to buy tires? I would rather put in a wine cooler! My question is. Has anyone gotten there plates in FL with a P.O box. Was told that is a cheaper way to go. To have a second place in Fl. With Diesel going up need to cut cost a little. Would like to take it out of the drive way

You can't use a PO box as they are not legal addresses. You would need a mail forwarding service.

However, if you tag it out of state, you should keep the MH out of state as your domicile state will require your MH to tagged there.

Here in VA, we pay personal property taxes on vehicles. The rate is county by county. I live in Fairfax county but store my MH in Prince William county. On your title you have to say where the vehicle is "principally garaged", where it's stored the majority of the time.

I put Prince William county. I didn't know at the time, but PW county doesn't tax RVs. Fairfax County does.

I can only have the MH in front of my house for 48 hours. It doesn't fit on the driveway. Once I got a warning for being a few hours over the limit.

Well, the police changed my title to say it was principally garaged in Fairfax County. Fairfax County sent me back tax bills for thousands of dollars.

I had to first get the DMV to change the title so it was principally garaged in PW county since purchase. Then I had to register with PW county who at first resisted since there was no point in registering something that wasn't taxed. They eventually agreed.

Fairfax County then contacted PW county and agreed to cancel my tax bills.

I feel for you!

First yes you need a phyical address in florida. aqnd an mail forwarding service will work.
Second. First time plate in florida Over $450 then after renewal is around $80 something per year.
Third: Florida keeps your title. You can purchase a real paper title for an extra $10 but only if you don't have a loan on coach.
Need to carry Florida insurance also.

Good luck and enjoy. Florida Resident , but Wisconsin born and bred.

Hope this helps

Ok lots to think about. Was so surprised when plates were 938.00 a year and won't ever go down as the rig gets older. Maybe will just get plates a month at a time as we both still work, and some months it will be just sitting here. Sure do love this site. Have never seen so many helpful people. Beth

I take the Road Runner behind the motorhome to Carlisle, PA, the Mopar Nationals in Columbus, OH and I've been to Ocean City, MD for a show there.

That's an old pic. The boy is now 7 and the car is now a 4 speed instead of a column-shift auto. Oh, and the engine is now a 528 Hemi.

$938 a year? Yikes I thought NY was expensive but I just looked at our registration and it is $164 for 2 years.

What state are you in rebel so I don't ever try to title anything there

Our plates in California were $2300 for our four year old coach...

Sold our home.... went full time..... joined Escapees and became domiciled in Texas. Plates are now $200. And, no income tax.
