That's on of the reasons that I moved from Indiana years ago. My first move was to Ohio. The yearly fee for license plates there was $35.00, no matter the age or value of the car. Trucks were more unless you could claim then as "recreational vehicles", then they were about the same as cars.
However, unless things have changed, you could have had your dealer include the taxes and plates in the sale and financed the whole thing.

May of 08 gives us time to set the funds aside - thanks for the information.


Compared to your situation mine is not so bad - how and why do we let our elected officials set such high rates in some of our states for items like RV's? It is just to expensive.


You are one of the lucky RV owners with the rate you paid?


Wow! Repeal of the property tax in Indiana! Even a reduction would be appreciated. At this point I don't expect either.

All of the input is appreciated - many thanks

Does Indiana also tax boats and other RVs similar to MHs? I hope my state does not hear of this as another tax.

Indiana has a "Personal Property" Tax. Brother, it's on everything that is your "Personal Property"!

When we bought the property we live on. We lived in the Mobile Home (Trailer) we owned a 36" 5th Wheel with 3 slides. The first year we got the Tax bill, the Tax on the 5th Wheel was a $100.00 more than the Mobile Home. I told my wife we were living in the wrong building. We have upgraded to a new house now. But I see our county officials want too impose a wheel tax of $50.00 on Cars and $80.00 on Trucks. Don't know where RV's fit?

Some posts have up to 5 lines in what I presume is the signature area. But I can only fit 3 lines in.

Our local officials (and national) amaze me. They all seem to think they have us to use as a bottomless pit of money. So when the well runs dry they find a new name for a new tax or fee.

Since they are talking about a "wheel tax", what will they do about bicycles, lawn mowers and even the kids trikes?

Boats, no matter the value, have a very small fee and only RVs are taxed high. My brother-in-law lives in Indiana and he said the boaters lobbied the state better than the RVers.
