When joining the Escapee's Club you can establish a domicile in one of three states, Texas, Florida or South Dakota.

There are 10 states that have no state income tax if that's important to you. They are Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, Wyoming, New Hampshire (earned income only) and Tennessee.

However, there are many other things to consider, vehicle registration fees and inspections, health insurance costs, sales taxes, etc.

several things to consider. There are three states that allow using a mail service for declared domicile purposes; FL, TX, and SD. All three do not have state income tax. All three do have some level of sales tax.
What differentiates these states is health care, registeration fees, and vehicle insurance. In addition Texas requires a non commercial class A drivers license and annual vehicle inspections.
If you are considering FL you can check out the Saint Brendan's Isle mail service web site. It has all,the information needed to becomes a Florida resident. I believe Escapees and the SD mails service web sites have similar information.

One minor correction on the Texas drivers license: A Class A license is required for any combination of vehicles with a combined gross weight rating of the vehicles of 26,001 or more pounds and the gross vehicle weight rating of the towed vehicle (or vehicles) exceeds 10,000 pounds (probably applies to most 5th wheel rigs). A class B license is required if a single vehicle has a gross weight rating of 26,001 pounds or more that also tows a vehicle that has a gross weight rating that does not exceed 10,000 pounds (most DP rigs with or without a tow vehicle). A class C license (regular car license) is required if neither of the other two apply (most gas Class A and TT rigs). All of these are non-commercial licenses.

If you've already bought your vehicles WA is pretty good (otherwise figure up to 10% sales/use tax). Our MH tags costs us $125 a year and no inspection required, but maybe a smog test every two years, cars are $35-40 a year and no inspection other than a smog test every two years. Some areas don't need a smog test so pick and area outside them. No special drivers license required. No income tax. No sales tax on food. Can't comment on health ins as both of us are on Medicare and our supplemental ins is good US wide.
I don't know about an exemption for the smog testing if you're out of state when due.
