In missouri, we have to pay sales tax on the vehicle when we apply for title and plates. We paid no sales tax to RVW.

I got to call my local DMV to see how it works. I would hate to pay RVW 6% upfront and then go to my home state and have them ask me to pay the full amount.

You should not pay any DMV fees if you are buying out of state to the purchasing dealer. Out of state dealers don't have any responsibility to collect DMV fees and then send that money to CA DMV. They should issue you a temporary license for their state. That does not mean you will be legal traveling through other states, but you will probably be OK.

Now CA is a little different, you may have to stop at the first DMV office you reach in CA and to get a temporary permit to get the trailer home. You will have to pay CA license fees and sales tax when you register the trailer in CA. Don't even think about buying a new car out of state because CA will not register it unless it has 7500 miles on it.

Call CA DMV before you head out of state to make sure you have all the information you need.

Much easier here in Oregon. I purchased a TH from a Dealer in Texas. I made sure I had the deal in writing before I made the trip all they way there. They gave me temporary Texas paper plate. When I got home Had to take it to Oregon DMV so they could verify the Vin number. Oregon really does not care much, no sales tax.

We bought ours out of state and paid the Ca. sale tax in California. And we took delivery in Oregon.

We purchased a 2306 from RV Wholesalers and saw significant savings even when our travel costs were factored into the mix. We did not pay sales tax during the transaction at RVW. That cost was incurred when we registered the TT with PA DMV.

I also have a Tacoma V6 Double Cab with the tow package and can tell you that the 2306 places us near the threshold of comfortable towing. The Tacoma performs nicely, averaging 10-12 mpg depending upon the conditions and the landscape; however, I would not be comfortable towing with the Tacoma in the Rockies. Not saying it won't perform, but I would prefer a V8 with a wider wheelbase for traveling in the Rockies based on my experience towing in the mountains of PA.

My wife and I love our 2306. It's perfect for the two of us and still functional with four people, but a little crowded. The only thing I would do differently would be to get the murphy bed. This would free up some interior space and allow for more sitting comfort if the weather forces you indoors; otherwise, we couldn't be happier with our purchase.

Bought my first 5th wheel in Wisconsin in 2000. Tax was 5% which was more than I would have paid in Colorado, So didn't have to pay any Colo. tax.
Bought second at Cheyenne (R. V.?) in Iowa in 2010. Didn't pay any Iowa tax, But paid Colo. Tax when registering it.
