X2. Don't tell the gov't anything. Have PA issue you transporter plates, move it to VT, insure it with your insurance co. and enjoy it.

So, you are saying that if I am a resident of PA and own a travel trailer that I normally keep at my seasonal site in NJ, but travel with it elsewhere during the off season and at times during the summer; I need to title, register, and tag it in NJ and title, register, and tag my tow vehicle in PA (who issues my driver's license)?

That does not sound right. What address goes on the trailer's title?

You will need to insure the trailer with a Vermont policy if it is there more often than not. Might as well be upfront about it from the beginning in case you ever have a claim, especially if it's when it is being stored there.

Some state also require yearly inspection of a TT. In PA you need a yearly safety inspection on a TT. If this is a park model and going to be set up in a park then there may be other issues that need to be considered. I'd call the campground and the different DMVs and state the scenario and see what each state DMV would say.

I live in PA. Bought my TT in Ohio. When I bought it in Ohio the dealer did the paperwork. It was titled in Ohio and i was given a 90 day temp plate. When I got back to PA once I received Ohio title in mail I took it to PA dmv transferred title and registered and paid sales tax in PA.

I signed paper in Ohio that stated I was paying sales tax in PA, so only paid tax in PA.

Of course that is not exactly the scenario you are talking about but shows some of steps buying out of state.

Some CGs require their seasonals to register their campers.

This one is simple; bought in PA get temporary plates to move it to Vermont. Prior to that, call your insurance company and talk to your agent to find out the best way to bind (insure) the vehicle.
Now, the taxes; PA and Vermont have what is called a reciprocity agreement in place, by that it is "assumed " you will pay the appropriate s.tax at the time of registry in that state i.e. VT . As the other poster mentioned, " Vee have ways" . Jurisdiction ultimately becomes; "where it is domiciled" or "principally garaged", that being VT. Complicated enough for you yet!

Do this, if you're religion bothers you; register it, pay the taxes in your home state, plate it there, attach the plates and move it to VT. I for one would like to see "catch me if you can" play out. But thats just me.

Herk,

Who does what, be honest? When I moved to AZ my trailer stayed in Indiana on an RV lot we owned. When I went to transfer insurances they told me they needed to write me a separate Indiana policy for the trailer since that is where it is the majority of the time. Maybe other companies are different. We have subsequently sold the lot and have the trailer with us now and it is insured in AZ. That was my experience.

No I didn't. Home state is Florida, correct. Re-read it inserting Florida for home state, that will help you understand how this could play out, if he chooses that route.
