What do you pay for license plates?

I pay around $150 a year for my 28 year old motor home. I have a friend who owns a 2000 diesel pusher which he bought a couple of years ago. He told me he is paying $1300 a year for his plate. We live in Michigan. I want to upgrade but not get dragged over the coals every year.

If you go full time you can pick what state you want to pay. I just renewed mine with South Dakota - $235 for the RV and car listed in my signature.

Arkansas tags are $32 + change a year, which sounds like a bargin. Except we also pay personal property tax based on the assessed value. I think that's in the $1100 range on the RV.

So consider other annual fees and taxes for your state -- not just the tags.

Like was mentioned. Our tags are cheap the property tax sucks. I thank God I don't have to pay the HUT taxes every year like I do on my 3 trucks.

HUT= Highway use tax. When I bought my motorhome it was a little over $1000. On my trucks its charged yearly by the weight of what you haul/tow. I only pay for it on one of my trucks now. I think its $50 additional? Thankfully I don't have to pay for it on my SUV.

They issue a weighted stamped plate. I have one truck with a custom plate that didn't say weighted and was afraid I was going to get pulled over when towing. Being 25 years old its been retired from towing.

WA state is just less than $130 fo rf the MH. The kicker is the almost 10% use/sales tax. There used to be a exemption for out of state use, but now they've removed that. Move here and you pay the use tax on you're RV since it's considered a luxury. But, as of yet, we don't have an income tax. Since politics can't be discussed here I won't go into it.

Our registration fees in Michigan are determined by the original MSRP of the vehicle. The only way to avoid "the coals" is to get a Temporary Registration for the month. 1/10 of the cost of a yearly. A 60 day temporary is also available for 1/5 of the yearly registration.
