register my motorhome, arizona or nevada

which is better to register my motorhome in Arizona or Nevada? I understand the Dakotas and Texas have their advantages but not looking to go that far for now. Maybe even Oregon would be ok.

I don't know about the states mentioned, buy normally you have to be insured in that state and have a drivers's license from that state in order to register a vehicle.

The AZ license registration is mostly made up of a personal property tax component. It starts with the sticker base price (before options) of the vehicle when new. This figure is reduced 16.25% annually. The current year's "value" is multiplied by 60% and then by a 2.8% tax rate, slightly higher for a used vehicle registered for the first time. Being a personal property tax type of tax, the tax can be deducted on your income tax return. The registration for a new motorhome with a base sticker of $100,000 would therefore be $60,000 x 2.8% or $1,680 the first year plus the other components of the registration; license plate fee, emissions testing (testing itself is usually waived but you pay the fee anyways , mailing, etc. This vehicle when 2 years old would have a tax based on $42,084 value ($60,000 - 16.25% -16.25%) or $1,178. The calculation for a car works the same way.

Check out the Pro and Con of taxes by state at: Taxes by State
AZ and NV both have vehicle smog testing. I suggest you get vehicle insurance quotes from each state, that could be a determining factor.

You didn't say where your a resident of? (full timmer?) would check with each state you are considering to make sure you cover all the bases.

Arizona is not very nice to Motorhomes. Maricopa County does smog test.

Might want to look at other than Las Vegas. We live here in Vegas and DW and I have a 2011 Vista 26P. Last year registration was right at $1300, and insurance through Good Sam was $770 and here in Clark County, smog check is required. IIRC Nye County does not have smog requirements and insurance is cheaper.

He should register it in California, where his profile says he lives.

I see a neighbor with an out of state MH on their property for several months, the CHP Cheaters hotline gets a call.

Registering a vehicle out of state to avoid taxes is stealing from your neighbors.

If you're speaking of me, I sold all my real estate in CA and now only own Wheel Estate. My legal state of Residence is SD. I winter in So. Calif and pay the high sales tax on fuel and products I purchase while visiting CA. I also pay Federal Income Tax on my military pension during and AFTER serving 20 years of active duty service defending your rights and freedoms. I think You should be more concerned about all the ILLEGAL aliens entering California who do not pay CA state income taxes because Your state taxes now go towards sending them to Calif Universities.

We were in CA for almost a year for Thom's job, was supposed to be 6 months got extended several times to make it almost a year. No we did not change domiciles because according to the laws and rules we did not have to.
Left for 6 weeks then came back to CA now on a job under contract for a year, again did not have to change domiciles because of rules and laws.
Makes taxes a pain doing fed, several states, and city tax forms.
We still have MI tags because that's the rules and laws we are following. There maybe all kinds or reasons why the tags are not CA and most of them are following the rules and laws.

As already mentioned, it's probably not as simple as just deciding where to register your MH. In the vast majority of cases it should be registered in the state where you are a resident.

I will say a great state is FL. Yearly registration is less than my car , $73.00
No inspections here either
No state income tax.
If your full timing, that's where I'd register.
