AZ RV Insurance

Trying to decide if I should register my 32 foot Southwind in AZ. I have a house there but a CA license. Its an 2005 and CA registration is over $400

What are people paying in AZ for registration?

Probably more expensive to register in AZ. Insurance is higher also.

Do you pay personal property tax in CA? AZ vehicle registration is also a "property tax"...

My 2012 Southwind 32VS will cost us about $850 to register it this year. The first year that we had her, 2014, it as about $1200. Full comp & collision insurance is about $50 a month with State Farm.

Remember the DMV put $32.00 more on getting your tags per year. Cost us $64.00 per car for 2 years of new tags which is $128.00 more than I paid in 2017. I think they just started this last year.

call AZ motor vehicle dept and ask them. when you register a vehicle in arizona they use a table (based on year, make, model) to determine a value to use to to calculate the registration fee. it is their table and does not reflect what you actually paid for it or what it is worth. once they determine that value it decreases by 16% each subsequent year. being that it is going on 15 years old i would suspect that 15 years of a 16% reduction has taken it down pretty low. but as noted they have some fixed fees that they apply to each registration. they just added $32 per year to these fees though there is an effort to revoke this increase.

but this is just one component of the total cost of ownership. you should get insurance quotes also and then add everything together. one other risk is getting cited for having an out of state registration yet keeping the vehicle in california where you apparently reside most of the time.

do your research!
