In Florida they'll let you do without the tags but then they'll slap you with property tax which will be higher. Mobile homes used to keep tags on them even after they were more or less permanently installed, they had to keep the wheels and axles installed, just to take advantage of the lower tax rate. I don't know if that quirk was ever fixed in the law.

I live in Montana and we have permanent tags on all trailers from campers to stock trailers, so we are lucky. My 2009 Jayco was 180 bucks for plates as long as I own it, Montana just went to this a few years ago, the only tags that are not life time tags are on cars and trucks but you can get life time plates on your car or truck if you pay for 8 years up front. We do not have to insure trailers here unless it has a loan on it. Do other states require insurance on trailers? I will always have insurance on my trailer as long as there is value to the trailer other wise the TV insurance covers my liability.
Michigan has the same thing. Buy it once and forget it!
As far as insurance goes, if its on the road you need it insured.
Even if it wasn't on the road and parked in a seasonla I would want insurance.
As said, it deepends on what your state law says about it.
Now in Ca, you don't have a real choice. Either you have to pay the Registeration Fees, or you have to file and pay for a Non-Operational Fee.
Either way in Ca, that got you. If you don't do one or the other, the Fines are pretty stiff for not doing one or the other. Not rally worth what they will hit you with in the end.
They also could require you to have your RV toatally re-inspected by the State, such as they do with Junk Yard Titles, to get a car or truck back on the road again. Its just not worth the hassels. Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill
As others have said, each state or city and town could be different. I was seasonal in NH for 11 years, had to register when I bought the trailer and had it put on the site but that was the only time I had to register it. The town did charge property tax each year and the bank required insurance.
As some one asked, how can this be inforced on private property, each state has its laws, we cannot keep unregistered vehicles on our own property for more than 6 months, and that is limited to one vehicle. Laws are laws, some get away with things, others do not.

Is a campground considered public property? If a campground is considered private property how can valid registration be required? My understanding is that you can't be ticketed for expired registration when parked on private property, at least in Minnesota.
The registration for my travel trailer was so cheap I would have just done it. My motorhome costs a whole lot more so I wouldn't register it if I was parking it for a year.
The CG's insurance company might require it.
