Well, our 2012 Flagstaff, made it's final trip down our driveway last night. well sold it right smack in the middle between asking price and my bottom dollar. I consider that a success, especially selling before the end of the year, so now I don't have to pay property tax on it in 2019!

Happy New Year all! Stay safe tonight!

Congrats Tom! Winter sales are possible for sure. I've had more off season sales than in season. We are kind of relieved ours didn't sell because living in it will be necessary if we are able to sell and build this spring. I chose not to renew the plates last Nov so no excise tax for us either. I'll have to cheat to get it where it needs to go when we set up in it but that won't be far. Insurance will expire in March too...

Thanks Rodney! Living in it while you build could be pretty cool. It puts you right there with the action and easy access. It will be especially great since you are GC'ing things yourself. And since there are only 3 of you, it shouldn't be too bad. It wouldn't have worked for us when we built, with 5 of us in 10 less feet than you have!

Just swap plates from the dump trailer to move it up there. Should work fine as long as you don't get pulled over.

I had to renew the plates on my F350 last week too (we do end of year renewals on 18k+ trucks here in MO). I decided to go from 18k to 24k (6k increments in trucks) to keep things legal with the new rig. Cost me a good chunk of change more, but gotta keep the smokey off my tail.

I still have my tag Tom. Just didn't renew it. Here in MA, I'd be more likely to get caught swapping on the dump plate than running an expired RV plate. They are different. RV's all have a plate that's embossed with "camper" and every other type trailer has the word "trailer" instead. We still aren't sure if we will be having the RV on site or at my mom's. Both have their positives and negatives. Being on the land would be great to monitor progress. With the well in and temp power, it would be doable. I'd have 15" of gravel put down in the driveway area so it wouldn't be too muddy where we parked and set up camp. However, being at mom's puts us on a paved driveway with electric and water ready to go. Internet and a home base for mail and shipments too. Plus a full size washer and dryer helps too. It would also be closer to Elyse's current school. All of that is that is swaying us that direction. Either place would require we get an above ground tank dropped by a local sanican place to empty our black tank into. I could possibly tie into my mom's septic but it's very old and I don't want to be on the line if I caused a failure....

Ahh, that makes sense on the plates. Here in MO, a trailer is a trailer, no matter what type of trailer. The only difference is that you can get a permanent plate for a fifth wheel trailer. Costs about the same as 7 years of renewals, but it is not transferable. You would think they could come up with some type of standard system to use across all states.

Good thoughts on staying at your mom's. Plus, I'm sure having the little one nearby would make her super happy!

Congrats on the sale Tom. I bought mine in January (2016) in a private sale, definitely a market out there for that.

Property taxes on an RV, some places are quite creative in getting in your pockets for taxes. Just a $40 plate here. No doubt Ohio makes it up elsewhere.

The Camper plate does save us some bucks too. It's a flat rate of $50 a year. Trailer plates are $20 per every 1k of GVWR. So, if the RV had a trailer plate, it would cost me $420 a year instead of $50. The truck is easy. SRW trucks in MA get passenger plates. So my truck costs the same as a Honda Civic to register. DRW goes by GVWR and gets commercial plates...

Yes, mom will like having Elyse around... but it's going to get a little "close" after a few months for sure....

Thanks Eric!

Trailer plates here are I think $7/year (can't remember for sure) and GVWR doesn't matter. You can also do partial if you only use for a few months. But we pay personal property tax based on value. I think ours was $150 or so for the RV last year...$500 or so for the truck. Vehicle plates, SUVs are considered cars (even an Excursion), but trucks you pay based on the GVWR rating of your plate, not the vehicle. So I can license my truck for 6/12/18/24k, prices going up accordingly. You are only allowed a GVWR of what you are licensed for. Going from 18-24k doubled my yearly fee from 50 to 100 bucks.

They all get their money, one way or another.

Happy New Year Rondy and Crew!

Our trailer plates are based off of GVWR, and anything over 9,999 lb GVWR also requires an annual inspection. That only leaves one of my four trailers not needing an inspection every year, and each trailer costs more for the annual registration than my truck does. Funny that it it works out that the truck that sees every day use on the roads and highways, costs less in registration taxes than any of the trailers that might see once a month use. As for the difference possibly being that my truck uses fuel, and therefore fuel taxes to pay for the roads being paid, the only way the trailers go anywhere is with the truck burning fuel - and plenty more of it.

Happy new year guys!

Congrats on the sale Tom! I hope I get as lucky next year!

Crazy the difference in registation state to state. My dump trailer is $12 a year, plus a $5 "county fee" that they just came up with. Good news is if you register for 5 years at once you only pay the $5 once. Camper is $36 a year (plus $5 fee) or permanent option for $171. I have a perm tag on it now that I got back in 2011 for my gooseneck. PA changed the permanent law to allow one transfer over the life of the tag. It cost $150 back then so my cost is under $19 a year. It will be dead once this this trailer is sold and I will get another perm tag for the new one. PA requires annual inspections on all trailers over 3,001#.

Truck is $363 a year to register at 14k.

In NH most trailer dealers don't even know the inspection law. Some say you need an inspection at the 10k GVW mark, and some say any trailer with brakes needs an inspection. For us, an inspection for a trailer is $20...easy. But registration is costly. I'm paying over $200 each for three of my trailers. As far as the vehicles go they don't give you a commercial vs standard plate; fees are based upon vehicle GVW and price when new. My 2017 Ford dually was $1400 to register. No sales tax though!
