License cost for RV in New Mexico

We are considering relocating to New Mexico. I've been trying to research the licensing cost for a Class A coach there. Can someone provide the approximate annual cost to license a Class A coach worth around 50K in that state?

It's less than $200. Our 32,000 lb MH was something like $160 when we registered it this Spring.

If you are over 26,000 lbs, you need to get a class E license. There is no test or extra fee, you just self-declare that you drive an RV greater than 26,000 lbs. Basically, just fill out and sign a form.

X2 fee is based on weight. They will use the unladen weight, that is usually supplied by the MH mfr, and can be located inside a cabinet or other location on a sticker placed by the mfr. You could also bring in a weight tag from a certified scale (truck stop is easy).

Also X2 on getting the class E license. It specifically allows you to drive over 26K for non-commercial use. Do this when you transfer your driver's license.
