$535 registration fees in CA!

We just got our renewal from DMV on our 2015 International Signature 27' and it is $535! Can that be correct? I thought trailer registrations were significantly lower than for vehicles.

Consider registering in another state. My sister in-law lived in Ct, a state with annual personnel property tax. She registered her trailer in NJ for years.

May sound strange but not as strange as this. When I applied for a passport they would not accept my certificate of birth as it was issued by the Pa. hospital I was born in. I asked our Government what I should do. I was advised to contact Pa., something that would take months, or I could go on line. I went on line and bought a birth certificate from Ca. for $9.95. That got me a passport.

The only problem with that is that it's illegal, and if CA catches you, you will have to pay penalties on top of the registration price.

I think the fee is about right. My 2008 just cost $365 to register in CA.

Many trucking companies register trailers in "cheap" states, this is very common.

I cant say how CA would react, but really, how would they know?

One year?
Remember your paying for all those fine highways....

I thought NY was bad...$23.25 for the boat, $75.25 for the AS, adjusted for 8mos use. Reg's go from Dec 31 annually, I re-up every May 1st.

Wish mine was $535. In Georgia mine was $1300.00. Would have been only $20.00 if it had a motor.

I will be paying $28 for my Airstream tag renewal next month in Jackson County Mississippi. Same price I pay for my boat and HF utility trailers. Jeep tag is about $400 with all th ad valorem taxes that my state and county loves for motor vehicles.

In Florida I have to pay 6% of what I paid for the Airstream when I register it. Not looking forward to that.

That's Outrageous! Lucy's tag was $97.00 for two years, and that's too much.

The six is probably the sales tax.
