I live in Georgia. Bought RV in Alabama in December 2019. I did not pay dealer any taxes. When I went to local DMV in GA I paid taxes at my local rate. Lady at DMV hesitated to tell me it would be nearly $16k fearing I did not know that and did not want to shock me with the total. Now annually I only pay $20 registration fee and $100 for "heavy vehicle" fee (or whatever the official term is). The dealer handed me an envelope labeled "DMV" and stated everything the DMV would need is in the envelope. She was right, although it took the DMV about 20 or so minutes to register the envelope contained everything. Bought RV at Ingram RV (when it was owned by Marlin).

No taxes were paid at point of sale ; a temporary registration permit was issued , all taxes involved were paid at time/place of registration .

JMHO: The place to ask your question would be FL; MOT office. To see if an RV that will probably never be in state can be registered there.
Mt has no sales tax. And dmv is by county not state. So in general you cannot buy an out of state vehicle and have it registered in your name in Mt like most other states. They just aren't willing to deal with every single county and the varying fees. So you temp it, drive it here and reg. It

Michigan has a 6% sales tax and a One Time registration fee. This is from the SOS website

Permanent Trailer

Trailers and trailer coaches are registered with a permanent, non-expiring trailer plate based on the unit's weight. Trailer plates are nontransferable and must be purchased at a Secretary of State office.

We've bought 2 RV's out of state. We live in Michigan.

In 2019 we paid No Sales tax in Tennessee. But we did when we registered the Class A in Michigan.
We recently ordered a new Super C. Bought that in Iowa. We paid the Michigan Sales Tax, at the dealership.

Michigan doesn't care where it was paid, as long as it's paid.

As noted above, Michigan issues Permanent Trailer plates. It's a one time fee, as noted above. When you license the trailer, it is due.
