The grass is greener!?!?

Where is that saying that someone made famous (Erma Bombeck!?) about the ....

"If life is such a bowl of cherries, how come all I get, is the pits!?"

No sorry, how about, "the Grass is always greener in the other side of the fence...." No sorry, ...on the other side of the septic tank!?"

Seriously, the fees the we pay are really small potatoes compared to the benefits that we derive from our AS ownership, the fun, the fellowship....

Of course there are always other things that we can/ could spend those $'s on, but then, would you trade the AS for it??

Not me!

See ya out there!!!

Tag Fee

Greetings!

Here in Illinois, the annual registration fees are based upon the GVWR of the coach:
  • Travel Trailers:
    • 3,000 lbs. or less -- $18.00 (Recreational Trailer -- RT)
    • 3,001 - 8,000 lbs -- $30.00 (Recreational Trailer -- RT)
    • 8,001 - 10,000 lbs, -- $38.00 (Recreational Trailer -- RT)
    • 10,001 lbs or more -- $50.00 (Recreational Trailer -- RT)
  • Motorhomes:
    • 8,000 lbs or less -- $78.00 (Recreational Vehicle -- RV)
    • 8,001 - 10,000 lbs -- $90.00 (Recreational Vehicle -- RV)
    • 10,001 lbs. or more -- $102.00 (Recreational Vehicle -- RV)
There is also an additional fee of $7.00 for Personalized plates that include at least one number and up to six letters on most plates.

I keep hoping that Illinois will begin to recognized collectible travel trailers and motorhomes as they do now with antique vehicles (vehicles 25+ years of age maintained for hobby purposes). My "antique" cars are subject to Illinois registration of $30.00 and that is good for five (5) years -- there are significant limitations to use, but they aren't difficult to live with. I did notice that the Secretary of State's antique car show is offering special plates for both cars/trucks and trailers this year -- I don't know whether this is an indication that collector plates may be in the future for travel trailers or if it is just something for the annual show.

My K2500 Suburban is subject to regular annual registration of $78.00 ("B" Truck).

Kevin

If you think that is expensive MOVE TO ARIZONA

Since our property tax is CHEAP compared to other parts of the country. Tags for your Cars and Trucks and RVs are hefty in AZ. They assess the tag based upon NADA value. Newer the vehicle, higher the tag price. My '05 Safari tags and title are over $600! '05 truck is $450. 'The Man' will get you going or coming in the end, they always get their tax in some shape or form.

In Tennessee a permanent tag for our 1970 31 footer is just 17.00. The clerk said if it stays in state it would never have to be renewed.

My '89 32' is $170 annually. When I registered my '74, they didn't have a BB value that far back so we (me and the clerk) took a swag to what was agreeable; I left pretty happy with a $54 tab. I'm sure in Maine they go back to the 1920's for some Allis Chalmers tractor and adjust for appreciation and inflation.

It's "The Golden State" for a reason...

In addition to the highest gas prices in the 48 states, California also boasts hefty registration fees.. Plate for 18 year old Excella renews at $96 (down from $101 last year..) and 4 year old Excursion is $190... Add in 8.5% sales/use tax on purchase and on all gasoline sold and our roads should be better maintained also.. These registration fees were 40% higher prior to Governor Arnold arriving, and very few of the dollars collected ever get near the state agency responsible for roads and bridges..

Just did my new Safari 2 hours ago, here in Louisiana the Tag is $10.00 a year or $70.00 for permanent. I went for the permanent. The tax was another matter.

Would you believe that Maine even has the original purchase price of a 1930 Model "A" Ford Tudor Sedan as a reference point for the tag for same??? Admitedly, it only resulted in a minimum fee of about $12.00 - but there was indeed a basis on which the cost was derived-----and they definitely know the new MSRP price of every vintage Airstream Trailer!!!

My truck tags runs $300.00.

Here in Michigan we now have a "Permanant Plate". It goes something like this....
If your trailer weighs 2,499 lbs or less your "one-time plate fee" is $75.00.
If your trailer weighs 2,500 lbs or more your "one-time plate fee" is $200.00.

I used quote marks for a couple good reasons...

"Permanant Plate" - I am sure they will find a way to get us to pay another annual fee on the "Permanant Plate".

"one-time plate fee" - If you sell your trailer to another Michigan resident that person will have to pay his "one-time plate fee". Your old plate is not transferrable to another trailer and the new owner of your old trailer cannot use it. Everyone has to get new plates all over again.

I am sure, come this November, our Canadian-born governor will be looking for a new job. Let's all pray that happens!
