While registration in Missouri is not bad they get you with annual property tax. My 8 year old Airstream was about $350 this year.

While it was cheap to register the trailer in Texas the property taxes are amongst the highest in the US.

Not matter where you live the get you coming or going.

It's different for almost every state. Our tag for the trailer is $17/year, and property taxes are $5/year. On the TRUCK, however, it's $97 license, and $435 property taxes. We have to pay both county and city taxes on vehicles.

The 6% was probably called a use tax, but it is the same as the sales tax. In Tennessee it was 7% plus a smaller local tax. Those are one time charges. My boat is registered in FL, and docked in Florida. If I bring it to TN there would be an ungodly use tax due. It ain't coming home. The FL registration fee for it is about $200.00/yr which is not bad. No personal property tax there.

In Florida, 6% is the state sales tax and is collected on the entire value of the vehicle. The local county tax varies by county, but in the case of a vehicle, it is collected only on the first $5,000 of the value.

My Tundra was $ 435 and the Tradewind was a mere $ 96 this year. This fees drop every year as they age.

But wait ! The folks in Sacramento are looking at ways to fund their "special" programs and have been robbing the DMV funds for years.
So the apropreations department is trying to create "fees" to pay for the highways and Highway Patrol because of the misappropriation of funds stolen from the DMV funds.

They want to raise the registration fee and are looking at an annual $ 35 road access fee for each vechical . They also want to eleminate the hybrid exception and charge them a $ 1000 fee.
All this without a ballot measure !

Hopefully our representives will prevent this from happening .

Good grief I've got 6 trailers and 5 cars and 4 pickup trucks !
It's bad enough that the DMV charges for commercial plates and a weight fee that is equal to or above the registration on my non commercial use pickups.

Talk about a windfall for the DMV on all the non commercial use pickups on the road.

Console yourself with the knowledge that California vehicle registration fees decline as the age of the vehicle increases reflecting depreciation.

Your registration fee is correct for CA. Mine was $535 for our 2015 International Serenity, 27'. Our tax dollars are at work making more potholes.

I also live in California. My 2015 FC was $565. My 2015 TV was $632. Don't know why I was surprised to receive notice. After all it is California.

Many states like Arizona have a Personal Property Tax on cars, trucks and RVs. My new Tundra was over $400 for plates this year, but will drop every year. My 40+ year old Airstream is now $15 per year. The PPT part of the plates is a deduction at tax time.
