I knew a guy who owned 2 almost beachfront condos on Oahu and rented them out all year, except for when he and his wife went there for 'renovation and repair'. Now that's a business expense.

Thank you for all in great information

Great information!! Can I take the license plate from my old RV and put it on the newly acquired one to transport within a day to drive from the purchased area to Florida to get it registered? Do I have to go to the DMV at the purchased state?

I brought mine home without a plate. I think most states have a time limit from the time you purchased to get it registered in the new state. I think if you have all your paperwork with you it would be OK. I don't think you can legally transfer the plate from the old one, unless the plate is registered to you and not the trailer. Our state is changing to that so it may be possible. Check with your vehicle registration office.

You can always call the state police in the state(s) you'll be traveling through to confirm. I've towed a boat trailer for over 50 years in many states and never had it registered, never got stopped for the trailer not having a license. (I did get stopped for speeding but he never said anything about the trailer not having a plate. ) In KY you don't have to have the trailer registered but you can get stopped in another state (like OH) if they require one.

I bought ours from a private seller in Iowa and towed it home to Maryland. I did not place a tag on the trailer. Have all your paperwork in the tow vehicle and easy to access. Using a tag that is not registered to the trailer is more trouble than just presenting the correct paperwork. as stated above, you have a time period immediately following the purchase to transport to your home state for inspection and registration.

Just a friendly reminder: If you put the registration plate from another vehicle onto yours with the intent of deception to avoid the law, even for a roll down the road, you could be cited for displaying ficticious tags. It would be better to have no plate vs a fake one. We have 10 days to get the vehicle registered. Other states I have lived in, CA,IL,VA,LA,MS,MN are about the same. Make sure your ins covers the towed vehicle for liability in case of an accident.

Usually the Bill of Sale and title can be used for transportation of the trailer. I would think it's not much different than buying a vehicle out of state.
