South Dakota or Texas seem to be the top two choices.

The cheapest state is pretty much irrelevant. You have to go by what is your state of residency, not by where the cheapest state is to register an RV.

In Virginia, the tax rate is set by the locality. My vehicles are registered in two different Virginia counties - I pay very different rates - $2.35 per $100 value once a year vs $4.28 per $100 of assessed value twice a year. Two campers, my boat, and boat trailer are in the cheap county and my cars are in the expensive county - I follow the law in deciding where to register what.

The motorhome is registered in Texas. I reside in Alabama. The coach is garaged in Alabama. Currently the motorhome is in Texas. Its very confusing.

Oregon has no sales tax, but about 9.8% income tax and they want it on ALL your income if you domicile there. My parents lived in OR and they even taxed my fathers Navy retirement which was entirely earned out of state. The state got sued over it adn lost so they quit collecting it, then they changed the laws and started collecting on the retirement again. Parents move back to WA which has no income tax but does have sales/use taxes. Even then OR tried to collect tax on the retirement for a while.

Greg, generally residency is determined by a bunch of different factors. Here are some of the primary factors that the states look to:

1. Where do you spend the greatest number of days?
2. Where do you vote?
3. What state is your driver's license from?
4. Where are your vehicles registered?
5. Where do you earn your income, if employed?
6. Where does your family live?

These are some of the most prevalent factors that states look to. When dealing with RV's another major factor becomes where is the RV garaged. That can be one of the most important factors depending on your state's laws.

TX, SD or FL are the most common states for RVers for domicile. No state taxes in them and they have mail forwarding companies that you can use for vehicle registration addresses and stuff.

The Original Poster says he has property in multiple states. More than likely he is not a fulltimer. Fulltimers can pick their state of residency up to a point, but those of us who aren't fulltiming don't have that luxury.

Two answers: If you are considering moving (at least legally moving) and changing your state of residence.. The first responder (SD or TX) got it right.. But also check out the other taxes (income) you may pay there.

IF you live in any of the other 48 states.. The cheapest state to title in is the one on your driver's license.

Here is why I say this: Many have formed Montana LLC's due to Montana's tax laws and registration fee schedule for their Motor home.
And a good number of them have heard the knock on the door and the words "State Treasury Agent" and been handed a bill for way way more than they would have paid if they had done it legally up front.

I would avoid NC, Plates are cheap, but the yearly property tax SUCKS!
