If you own a business in AZ (RV Park), you may be able to register the AS as an asset of the business. Then you should be able to register in AZ even though domiciled in CA. Check with your CPA to be sure, but I know a few folks who have done that without issue.

Soooo... this seems great, and Iíve been scouring the VA code to see if there are any laws preventing this type of creative use of other states laws...

I give the county I live in roughly $1700/year because I own an AS, it is registered in VA, and garaged here. If it were registered in another state, those rules donít apply.

What I donít know is whether there are laws that say the tow vehicle and TT need to have registrations from the same state? (Or any other laws that would make it illegal). Any others from VA that might know?

Thanks

I Loved Playing Tax Avoidance...

What you need is something called a CPA or a Financial planner that’s also a Tax guru! That is, if you think you can find a good one that’s worth their fee. Works well for those that like the good life — on the CHEAP! Follow the lead of the upper class!! Just remember this: Don’t ask questions like this on public forums and keep your civil attorney’s phone number handy!

A California person here. Registration is going to be between $200 and $300 this year for a six year old 27FB. Been camping this week, temps in the mid 60's, but drove 45 minutes up into the Sierra's to snowshoe a bit and play with the dog the snow. Came back and warmed up in the sun outside on the nice grassy campsite with a IPA while reading about a polar vortex someplace. Won't mention the young gals attempting to sunbathe a few sites over.

No question California taxes can be higher than elsewhere, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

According to the State of California, I was on the hook for the back registration even though I had sold it and would garnish my bank account and tax refund to get it. I finally contacted a Attorney to get ‘this straightened out and in the end I didn’t pay the back registration and the state ended up paying me $2500 for my grief. If the State of California can’t get this right, amagine the grief one would go through trying to dodge high license fees if you still own it.
You are supposed to fill out the lower half of the certificate of title with the date you sold it and to who and mail that to DMV. Never trust a buyer to transfer the title. A lot of people wind up dealing with a car they sold that is still in their name being involved in an accident. Talk about a headache.

California Registration

Haven't stepped up to a real trailer as yet, but the teardrop I bought a couple of years ago cost me $19 to register in California, forever.

I'm hearing at today rates, people are getting 60cs on the dollar in rebuild costs. If there is a more appropriate thread on this site to discuss further, let me know !

I'd be curious to know if there are any Co-op style RV parkers, multiple owners in an association each with their own lot ... kinda like a timeshare or owner-occupier mobile home parks ..


I agree....i see growth in the RV park business going forward. Home ownership, as I see it, will become more and more a financial burden as costs of local, state, and fed government continue to rise. These costs will be captured where they know it can be captured. People will make changes based on economics, as we ALWAYS have done. More Taxes discourage an activity, less taxes encourage activity. It's not complicated.

In the future, more and more people will seek out the RV as a place to live. Why?. Because owning a home will have become too expense, and then the "luxury" item will have been converted to a "necessity"... In other words, a place to live.

In about 20 to 30 years, the government will finally wake up to this "avoidance", and people having the audacity to keep their own money.

It is at this time the governing bodies will take square aim at those of us that have done our due diligence in trying to stay out of their "attention"., And trying to live simpler uncluttered lives. They will tax and secure money from "us" ... Because we dared to venture out and pursue a bit of our pioneer spirit.
