If your trailer is paid off, I have heard that you can register it in South Dakota... no exorbitant fees... just an SD plate on your trailer.

Property tax on Airstream in South Carolina

Oh boy moving from the Buckeye to the Palmetto state. Lots of culture shocks in you’re future here.

And we’re from Cuyahoga county (Ohio) left in 1996 and now living in Darlington county (SC) since 2002.

You’re just a couple hrs SE of us.

The great State of South Carolina views that very dimly. Even if registered in another state, SC requires that taxes be paid on vehicles that you own and are garaged in SC for a certain number of days during a year. This may be difficult to enforce; however, they make it easy by supplying a form for citizens to send to the tax authorities giving the particulars so that it can be investigated. Not sure, but I think some counties actually pay a bounty for the reports if it leads to taxation of a vehicle registered elsewhere. The person reporting remains anonymous to the person reported. There ain't many states quite like South Carolina.

Well, we rented out our home for one year and have been traveling in our AI for seven months. Had to get a full-time RV insurance policy, about a 20% increase from Progressive. (Soon we will go out of country for three months but in May we are leaning toward doing it all again for another year.)

So does this make our AI a second home? I don't think it matters for any of our taxes here in Oregon, but maybe for someone else in another state?

Edistobob,

That’s a whole new thread!

I still get that where you from look or question sometimes when my Buckeye roots are showing.

Ohio sweet corn is some of the finest but never ever saw boiled peanuts or shrimp n grits in Ohio.

But I do cringe when the bill for a new tag for the AS shows up in the mail.

Gary

THEPARULA - I hear ya. I only chose to laugh, otherwise our only other option is to cry. We are all inside this titanic of a ship called The U.S.S. Taxation and it is leaking like a sieve.

I can understand that. States need tax revenue and fees to provide services to their constituents. Some states however tax more than others. I am not recommending this by any stretch - all my vehicles are registered in AZ. But I bet South Dakota loves the additional revenue. 🤪

It does seem a bit lopsided.

You pay sales tax at time of purchase, then a tag every year, but an additional tax because you are able to have a recreational vehicle in which to travel.

On an item which steadily depreciates and which has to be maintained.

I would be very unhappy with that.

The "tag police" do go thru my neighborhood; I'm told because of the schools, proximity to N. Carolina etc. So the only possible legit thing to do would be to put it in my son's name in Ohio. I'll pay this year and consider it next year. My other down side is I bought it Nov. 30 so my taxes are due in December....bad timing for expenses with holiday travel, gifts, and my son's last tuition bill.....yeah on that last one! What do they say? Only things certain in life are death and taxes.

This is a fascinating topic and I thought Ontario had high taxes. After paying the 13% HST (a sales tax) on our trailer, the license fee was $180 and good for life. No other taxes. The truck and car are each $120 per year for the plate renewal.

Unfortunately, and depending upon how closely they really check, your son would owe the SC property tax if it is garaged in SC the requisite number of days.

Yes, Government is 90% bluff. There is an appeal process to any lawful requirement. Not only appeal, ask for a refund of all past misapplied taxes. As a retired government employee I saw fist hand the misapplied laws. My staff was required to know and understand what the law we were enforcing actually states.
Always ask to get a copy of the regulations. “By what authority do you do this?” Will send chills down the spine of the average bureaucrat. They also don’t like it when you respectfully state you will be discussing this with your elected representatives; council county members, etc.,

Looks like no long term (or short term) visits to SC.

They used to have a sign at the California border to Oregon that says visit but don't stay. Sound Like South Carolina says don't come.

Hi, in California if you live and/or work in California for ten days or more, you have to change all of your licenses. The cops have been known to go to company parking lots looking for out of state plates. If your car is in a company parking lot, you work there.

What are all the possible ramifications of registering the vehicle as a MB Sprinter 3500, VIN XXX..., NOT as an Airstream Interstate? Probably not possible at this point, but what about others who move from one state to another? Can this be done?

Also - taxes (all types) are one of the main reasons that full timers use FL, TX or ND as their "residences".

I live in Beaufort County SC and did register our Airstream as a second home. There were no strings attached - you don't have to put it on blocks. There is a significant savings involved so go back and challenge them on this. Good luck.

Just make sure whatever you do is in sync with your insurance, as if you have an accident you want to be sure your Interstate is covered and not just the chassis it is built on.
