Yup.. And inspect over 4500#. Yearly. If out of Texas you can renew online and specify the trailer is "not in the state" and you have 4 days to inspect once back.

I believe whoever oversees trailer parks in MN requires that all trailers have current stickers/plates. We also have to move the trailer to storage in the fall and back in the spring, so a current license is pretty much required.

Great tip on renewing online. I think part of the problem is that some county clerks don't know about the self-certification option.

No sales tax, permanent trailer plates after 1 years fee. You need to form a montana LLC but there are numerous firms that will provide that service. I did it for my truck and AS. There was no inspection required. Most importantly here in California you do not want to register your vehicles in your personal name (in another state) and then drive around with a CA drivers license. That will cost you. But once they are in an LLC then the vehicles are the property of the corporation, they can live (be licensed) where ever they want. So far no one has questioned it. Has worked great.

Ditto Austin on full time 6 yrs with Mailbox America from rapid city SD. Plus insurance rates lower for auto and Medicare all you have to do is stay one night in SD and register for citerenship. We reg veh and voted the same day we arrived! 5 yr driver lic but with new Homeland securiy rules you must reg in person in every state in your lic state you r reg in

You need to be a resident of MN in order to title the trailer in MN. Our Navy son ran into trouble getting insurance for his trailer that we were going to store for him when he got transferred to Hawaii. No one would give him insurance if he wasn't living in the state the trailer was in, or if the tow vehicle wasn't licensed in the same state as the trailer was in. He ended up transferring title to us so we could store and insure it while he was gone.
I don't think, for you, that will work.

For South Dakota: " just a 3% excise tax."
What is excise tax and what does it apply to?
They say no sales tax, but excise tax?, is it another form of sales tax or what is it?
Thanks,

Thanks for all the input. Sounds like our best bet is to renew in Texas online.

The fed's have put excise taxes on hundred's of products. Including Cars and trailers. Most of the time this tax is buried in the MSRP. In SD it isn't. So call it a 3% sales tax if you like. But this tax is not on other things you might buy.

We just renewed the registration on our inherited AS in Louisiana. It was only $70, and no inspection requirement. That was a nice surprise.

I just transferred my registration to Michigan - no inspections - no renewals. A permanent plate costs $200. It is not transferrable. You'll need to transfer the title as well, that's an extra $16.

Anyone know about registering and sales tax in Oregon ? On normal items there is no sales tax. I'm not sure yet about annual property tax but in NC the sales tax for an RV is apparently $1500 cap. On vehicles it's 3% but then they get you every year on property tax which ends up being roughly 1% of the current book value.

I follow the law and register my vehicles in my domicile state. Registering out-of-state to avoid paying taxes is illegal. But I'm not going to rat anybody out for doing so— our great nation was founded on the principle of tax evasion, going all the way back to the Boston Tea Party.

Plus there are loopholes to register out-of-state and still be legal, such as forming a corporation incorporated in a specific state that has low corporate taxes, and making the vehicle or trailer a corporate asset; which is a trick yachtsmen use to register hideously expensive yachts and avoid paying excise taxes. By registering in the corporation's name, you're registering in-state for the corporation, regardless of where you personally happen to live.

I have an office in NC, in WA, and relative living in OR where the trailer would actually be used and parked/stored. For me it's just choosing the best of 3 locations each with legitimate basis.

So, I'm hoping an Oregonian will chime in....
