Here in Michigan it cost $75 to register our EggCamper and that's it. The plate is good for as long as you own the trailer. There are several fee categories based on the trailer value. No transferring the plate to a new trailer.

I'm curious, do know what you'll have to pay sales taxes and first time fees when you switch to WA. One of my friends used to live in WA he went there from OR, he said he had to weigh his popup trailer and pay a pretty good fee. Things could have changed since then.

No sales tax due to age of the trailer and the fact that I already paid it in California. I don't know the fees, though, all it says is "if you are registering it for the first time in Washington contact us." I did contact about my boat at one time (before I sold it) and it was about $60 something so probably an additional $20-$30. Does anyone here know?

Mine has been registered previously in Washington, but not by me.

The magic of New Hampshire, no sales tax. Look at the price of anything and that's what you pay.

Here in BC you do pay Provincial sales tax on new and used trailers at 7% plus a 5% GST (Federal goods and service tax). Yup a wonderfull 12% to add to the purchase cost. Same with auto's but the rate actually goes up on the Provincial sales tax if the vehicle is worth more than $55,000 - up to 10% on vehicles worth more than $57,000.

I assumed trailers were like autos, a yearly registration fee based on the value?? Raz

We do have a yearly registration fee based upon initial value and age. For our 25 year old trailer it was something like $15. We have no inspection for trailers but do for motorhomes.

The big savings is of course no sales tax.

Yeah, we've been known to sneak across the border and smuggle stuff back in. Don't tell anyone on this side of the river. Raz

No provincial sales tax in Alberta, but the federal 5% sales tax now applies. No effect on used trailers. I think that might not be the case if you purchase your used trailer from a dealer.

Fees in Indiana depend on what county you live in. The variable is a "wheel" tax that varies from $0 to $40. It's up the individual county's discretion and doesn't depend on trailer size.

I live in Hancock County, which charges the maximum $40.

The yearly fees for license plates on my 1978 Trillium are:

Excise Tax $12.00
Registration Fee $29.75
Wheel Tax $40.00
Admin. Fee $ 5.00

Total $86.75

A new trailer will cost more for excise tax depending on value. It think it eventually bottoms out at $12.00 after 10 years.
Sales tax on a purchase is 7%. New or Used.
Titles are a $15.00 one time fee unless you need a duplicate, that's $8.00
Replacement plates are $10.00.
Registration fees are $28.75 for new and $29.75 for yearly renewal.

Here in Ontario the lic fee for a trailer is $35.00 for life, if sold there is a transfer fee (about $20.00).
When sold the HST tax is 13 % on the selling price, and yes each time it is sold.

Like Frank (Post #3) I paid 8% sales tax the first time I registered the trailer. Trailer tags in NY are based on weight - I picked up a new license plate sticker for 2014 before leaving on a year long trip & paid $36.25 for the year.

GST, which is part of the HST, is only applied once to anything purchased. Is this because the tax is combined with the PST now? A bit foreign to me being an Albertan.

To clarify for our friends south of the 49th, in most provinces the 5% GST (Goods and Services Tax - federal) is combined with the 5-10% PST (Provincial Sales Tax) to give you the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax).

In Alberta, there are no Provincial taxes. We are the only Province that does not have them (other than the 3 Territories in the north). I sure hope it stays that way, as that extra 5-10% would sure be costly.

In North Carolina in October we paid a 3% HUT (highway use tax) of about $600 for our Lil Snoozy (one time fee). We also paid the regular license fee of about $30 which is a yearly cost.
