Not to be argumentative but that's not really true. Many low tax states have a high standard of living. Not to be political but it's more about good stewardship.

Money has to come from someplace to maintain infrastructure and services and generally that is taxes.

Totally agree, the money has to come from somewhere. But having said that, this thread is meandering into a discussion topic that always means trouble.

Good point, getting back on topic...I guess I better check into what it will be in CA. I’ve never bought a new trailer or new vehicle before so I’m going to get slammed big time!

Lisa,
Just put an extra $3000± in your checking account and you Should be covered. You have 20 days, after the trailer enters California, to register.



Heartly recommendation: Do it at the Mt.Shasta City (I-5) or Eureka (US-101) DMV offices. Otherwise, you'll probably have a sad, convoluted tale to tell on the forum.

Just a bit of info here...
If you are buying from a dealer and have a trade in you only pay the difference between the value of your trade and the higher value of what you are buying. At least that's what I encountered in New York when buying a truck.

In Wisconsin , if you purchase a new vehicle or trailer you pay sales tax on the price of the vehicle before the rebates are applied ( IE , You pay sales tax on the rebates .)
Minnesota charges sales tax on the price you paid after the rebates are applied
So even though Minnesota sales tax is higher than Wisconsin when all is said and done the total tax was roughly the same
My legal residence is in Minnesota and my vehicles and trailers are all licensed in Wisconsin
Perfectly legal if you follow the laws as written

Same in Washington. However here it has to be part of the same transaction with the same party so it favors dealers. In other words, I was taxed on the full value of my new 5.0 because when I sold my 19' it was to a different person / business than who I bought it from and a different date.

When I traded in my Tacoma on a Tundra at a dealer, I was only taxed on the difference.

The rule varies by state, in Maryland you pay the sales tax on the purchase price regardless of trade in, in Pennsylvania, it is the additional cost, after trade in that is taxed, so each state varies.

Listen to Don. I wasn't able to register in Mt. Shasta City (saturday) and I do have a sad, convoluted tale. More than 3 months, several different dmv official stories, yadda yadda.

TT Insurance

Last year I purchased my TT from a couple in Georgia. As we concluded the negotiation process via email, I had them send me the VIN of the trailer. I then notified my insurance agent, as a heads up, that I would most likely be acquiring the TT.

After driving to Georgia and concluding the deal, I notified my insurance agent to activate the insurance.

The closing process included a trip to a Georgia notary public to “witness” the signatures on the documents including a bill of sale. The couple was not willing to let me take the Georgia tag so I drove back to Ohio without a tag. If I would have been pulled over, the notarized documents should have placated any concern that law enforcement might have had.

Arriving back in Ohio, the titling and registration processes were uneventful except for the depletion of a significant chunk of money from my checking account for the transfer fee.
