If you read the OP's post you'll see he's buying it from a neighbor not a complete stranger. My comments stand. Private parties rent motorhomes out all the time.

Well, I just had a long talk with the WV DMV. Bottom line, I have to pay the sales tax in WV. They do not do temporary tags on private sales, and do not do out of state one way trip permits and you can not transfer original tags (even though his registration is still good for several months). Not happy.

Oh, the seller would never go for something like renting. He just wants his money and I don't blame him.

Most states will honor the taxes paid to another state for vehicle registration. Call your home state DMV and see if they have a reciprocal agreement.

BTW, for those that referred to the OP as a male, her name is Ellen. Ha!

Oregon does not have sales tax.

I would think that your paperwork from the West Virginia DMV would suffice while you are driving across country to your new location. As long as you have your insurance in place and can prove that you have it, that should be enough.

We purchased our motorhome in Oregon and all we had was the sales receipt from the manufacturer and our new insurance binder. We didn't have any problems driving back to Tennessee to register it. As long as your have your paperwork, I would think you would be OK. You really don't have a choice from what the WV DMV told you.

Why don't you just have your neighbor keep the WV tags on the vehicle until you get to OR, register it there. If your neighbor needs the WV tags back for whatever reason, then just mail them back to him.

There has to be some way around paying WV sales tax.

When you are a resident of WV and the motorhome is owned by a WV resident and is located in WV I don't see much choice. Unless you take off with the old owners plates (if he will leave them on it) and a notorized bill of sale. When I purchased from a Alabama dealer, that is all I had for my 1000 mile trip home through 6 differnet states. No one ever bother me.


The OP is buying the motorhome and then leaving the state the very next day to move to Oregon. There has to be a way around paying WV sales tax. I'm all for paying the taxes you owe, but when you fully intend to but it and take it to another state there just has to be a legal way around pay it.

Thanks a bunch everyone! Yep, I'm of the female variety, but I thought I'd just let that go

I'm really excited about my first cross country trip, and will look through the threads here for routing info. I've never driven a MH, should be interesting. It's a 33' 1993 Seabreeze, in great condition, with a new motor and tires.
