WOW, I must be living the life then here in Oregon. It cost me $30 to transfer my plates to my MH in 2013 and I haven't paid anything since then. There is no Property tax or sales tax either.
Don't get me wrong, if you are not a disabled ex-military person you will pay for MH registration every 2 years but I am so I don't.
OH yeah No DEQ check either.

In 2018 with SD as domicile we paid $160.

In Washington state in King County it would have been close to $1400.

So we drove with expired plates for 2 months until we got our registration in SD completed.

We were always happy to donate the $5 for the parks.

My license plate fee (registration sticker) in Arkansas is $32 annually. Thing is, they won't give you a new registration until you prove you've paid the personal property tax, just under $2000 on my coach, prove you have insurance, another $1500 more or less, and prove you've assessed the unit for next years tax list. Then you can get your $32 registration.

Wow, Arkansas really wants their money now and in the future! Here in Michigan the plate registration os calculated/ based off the original MSRP of the rig. I would think that their is some calculation for depreciation. The insurance for a motorhome is expensive in Michigan because we have a no fault law along with a catastrophic claim fund (paid out for life to the person(s) that meets the requirement). I believe the Michigan has got to be one of the top 5 worst states to own a motorhome with respect to taxes, insurance and license plate fees. The crazy thing is that if you have a $100k fifth wheel you pay for your plates once for life! This is the reason that I ask the question; what would be the downside of putting a current car plate on a motorhome for 3-4 months while you are using it? Of course the motorhome would be completely different insured. I would carry the original title in my name for the motorhome in a safe on board so that in the event I had to prove ownership. I will check with my insurance company to see if there would be any risk of loss in the event the rig was involved in an accident in or out of state. This would be the biggest determining factor for me.

If you put a licenses plate on a vehicle that it is not registered too, that is a serious crime. You are much better to get caught w/o a plate at all vs having a jumped plate. Also, a car licenses plate goes by a different set of characters than even a truck and that would be very obvious and stand out to a LEO.
In Texas getting caught is a misdemeanor.

Here in Michigan a motorhome license plate has the same letters and number positions you cannot tell that a car license plate is on a motorhome unless the numbers are checked by law-enforcement.

License plate fees?

We are registered in TN and I just renewed our coach and or towed. We paid $80 for the coach and $80 for the car. Both model year 2016. We did have to pay sales tax on each based on sales price minus trade in value when we purchased them.

I like the state of Tennessee. It is a good state for retirees. It looks good for owning a motor coach too .

When I first moved to Kansas it cost three times as much to register a boat then did my car which didn't make sense. The RV/Boat dealers in Kansas took up the issue and claimed that tags were killing the industry and people were buying out of state and registering/leaving the RV/boats out of state. The legislature agreed and lowered the tags price lower the cars and now my motorhome is less than Jeep Wrangler. It still cost me 318.00 a year to register my DP which isn't as cheap as some states but also not worth going through the trouble of registering out of state.

License plate fees.

Renewal for my 2007 Bounder for this year wouldíve been $57.21 in Mississippi, but we recently moved to LA (lower Alabama). Went to get the tag last week and it was $331. Alabama goes by vehicle weight

Very good state, especially for retired/disabled military.

I know you can't get your $25 tag until you've paid your per. property tax and purchased insurance. What's the annual cost on those items for the dully before your $25 tag? Also your per. property tax on the Cedar Creek need to be disclosed just to keep apples to apples comparison.
