5.0TA Sales Tax - Idaho

We are thinking about moving to Idaho (currently living in North Carolina) after we pick up our 5.0TA next Aug/Sep. Has anyone titled a fifth wheel in Idaho and if so, what is the sales tax? I can't find a clear answer online. Thanks!

Some states have reciprocal agreements, for example when moving from Maryland to Pennsylvania there was no additional sales tax.

5.0TA - Sales Tax - Idaho

We will be leaving North Carolina, picking up the 5.0TA and moving straight to Idaho. We won't returning to North Carolina and then moving to Idaho.

So Idaho will be the first state the Escape will be titled in? According to IDOT, it is 6 %

If the initial titling is done in Idaho it appears that it is treated like a vehicle and the sales tax is 6%.

Idaho has a relatively high tax burden compared to some nearby states. Sales tax on a new rig titled there is indeed 6 percent. If your purpose in moving there is to lower your tax burden, Idaho might not be the best choice. If for other reasons, it's a beautiful state, and one of our favorites - particularly the panhandle.

Highway 12 from the Lolo Pass to Kooskia Idaho along the Lochsa and middlefork of the Clearwater rivers is the prettiest drive in the country. In my not so humble opinion. Kooskia
Nez Perce for “Sun coming over the mountain”. Might not yet be much of a town but has the best name translation too.

Idaho is horrible! Everyone has guns & shoot on sight. You absolutely don’t want to live here. Would advise choosing Oregon, Washington or Nevada but NOT Idaho. Luv, Jules

Thank you Julie. We can always use a bit of levity.

I think "horrible" is rather a strong and unfair term to describe Idaho
While Idaho is no Oregon , it does have a certain charm.
Oregon is a unique and a very special place in America !
