But, most counties add the discretionary sales tax allowed by FL. In the Keys (Monroe County) 7.5 %. The rest of Fl its 7%. Because we're so special the Keys are allowed an extra .5%.

Doesn't change the fact that the state rate is only 6%.

No extra tax in Lee county, where I am. Looking at the list, maybe a third of the counties don't have the tax. So it's not "the rest of FL" by any means.

Lee is also the home of the largest Newmar dealer in the country, I believe. Plus many other RV dealers. So it's not hard to buy an RV with only 6% tax.

Just a few weeks ago, bought a motorhome at PPL in New Braunfels TX. Signed an affidavit that we resided in Oklahoma. Paid zero taxes to Texas. The temporary tag also stated that we did not reside in Texas.

But you have to live in Lee county to only pay the 6%. When I bought my RV in Orange County FL, they had to charge the 7.5% because my address was in Monroe county. I bought a new Ford Explorer back in 1998 about 6 months before I moved to the Keys. VA sales tax on new cars was 4.5%. When I went to register the car here in FL the guy at the tax office told me to wait 6 months or he would have to charge me the the 3% difference since I owned the car less then a year. My point is, when buying a vehicle you pay sales tax based on where you register the vehicle. Not on where you buy it. So the original poster has been given the correct information. He buys an RV in FL but registers it in TX he pays the TX sales tax.

We bought our new MH in Florida but we live in Maryland. Florida is not reciprocal with Maryland either. I think the only sales tax we paid in FL was on the temp registration for FL. The selling dealership must send the paperwork to your home state's DMV (to the actual branch you will go to, to register the MH). Go to your local DMV after the paperwork has arrived, with a checkbook loaded for bear. Also, if the MH is to be registered in more than one name, all parties must be there to sign the documents, unless you have a power of attorney for all other parties. That one got me when I went to Maryland's DMV. A simple Fax from my wife at work and the problem was solved.
