RVing and Tennessee
Currently live in FL and looking around. How are registration fees and costs for RV's in Tennessee? Storage facilities etc.
I like it here in Tennessee and was curious what other motorhome owners think

Registration fees are inexpensive compared to VA or MN. Do not know what they are in FL so don't know what to tell you. As far as storage, we have plenty here in the western part of the state. As far as cost, I don't know because I chose to live where I can keep mine parked at home. We have lived in the state since 1998 and do not plan on moving. Let me know if I can help further. As me some specific questions and I will do my best to get you an answer.

Taxes vary by county and city in TN. BDWEAK is right you must provide very specific information.

We are registered in Sumner county TN. Plates on Motorhome and 2 vehicles are $80 each. Each county adds their own wheel take to the price of the state price. No bad, we’ve lived in other states and paid a lot more.

Thanks for the replies. I am looking in Clarksville, Montgomery County. If I was to do this I would buy a house and build an rv storage building/barn.
Finding the right house/location will take some time. Not really big on Florida. Registrations are cheap but appears that Tenn is just a few dollars higher. No big deal. I have much learning to do, this is a start. Thanks again

I live in Jefferson County TN (East TN). As stated there is a basic state registration fee and each county adds additional fees. I pay $75 per vehicle including the motorhome.

Each county has their own property tax assessment along with building permit costs. I just built a new house and it was based on living space completed, once complete they assess the property as to level of finish. IMHO the tax assessment on my new house that I built is lower then what I would have bought an equivalent house for.

I just completed a 40X50'X16' garage, the building permit was $400, it was based on square feet. I have not been assessed for the property tax yet.

If you are a DYI'er TN you can be your own general contractor building your own house and can also do the electrical and plumbing, which is what I did. You can save $$$ but it is a commitment, one that I'd never do again.
