Thumbs up Montana LLC

I've used the services of a Montana "Agent" to establish my LLC and get my trailer and TV registered in Montana. Most who advertize in the RV mags want an arm and a leg (like gas) but I found one who is good and reasonable.

I've established my residency in South Dakota and find it really advantageous. No state income tax, 3% on purchases, lower licensing fees. Of course, as stated previously, getting your drivers license there does require an inperson visit, but is so quick it is ridiculous.

Try for some advice and assistance. I used them before I 'moved' to Rapid City. There are a number of mail services in South Dakota that are knowledgeable about RV life.

Ditto here - I've been a South Dakota "resident" since last June. The process is quick - whole thing took me about 3 hours and the only reason it took that long was the drivers license bureau in Madison wasn't open that day and I had to drive down to Sioux Falls to get my license. I've gone with

and am totally satisfied with their service so far. Very inexpensive - in fact I don't see how the woman running it makes any money but I guess she does. For me coming from Virginia license plates were a good bit more expensive, I had a small savings on my truck insurance but the trailer insurance was double what I was paying in VA - but that might have been because I was going fulltime. I'm with State Farm and have been for years but may do some shopping around for trailer insurance the next time I have to renew. This was more than offset by no income tax, personal property tax and the hassle of vehicle inspections.

Although I'm no expert I think that most people who choose Montana are those who purchase very expensive RVs and they want to save the sales tax. If you already have a trailer doubt if MT would be the best choice. The top 3 for fulltimers are FL, SD and TX.
