Montana Code Annotated:
"61-5-103. Residency requirement.
(1) A person who has resided in Montana for more than 60 consecutive days is considered to be a resident for the purpose of being licensed to operate a motor vehicle and must be licensed under the laws of Montana before operating a motor vehicle.
(2) A person who has resided in Montana for more than 30 consecutive days:
(a) is considered to be a resident for the purpose of being licensed to operate a commercial motor vehicle; and
(b) must be licensed under the laws of Montana before operating any commercial motor vehicle.
(3) The department may issue a commercial driver's license to a person who is not a resident of Montana or domiciled in Montana only if:
(a) the person is domiciled in a foreign country with commercial driver's license standards, as determined by the federal motor carrier safety administration of the department of transportation, that are not similar to the testing and licensing standards provided in 49 CFR, part 383, subparts F, G, and H; or
(b) the person is domiciled in a state that is prohibited by the federal motor carrier safety administration from issuing commercial driver's licenses under 49 CFR 384.405

EDIT: Please note that this section applies ONLY to driver licensing. It does not cover any other aspect of "residency".

Montana residency requirements…
Residents can title, non-residents working can register for tax collection reasons…
Getting a resident hunting or fishing license is harder…
And I am done to…

Montana has several different residency requirements.
For the purposes of obtaining a Driver's License, you are considered a resident after 60 consecutive days and must have a Montana license in order to operate a motor vehicle. For a commercial motor vehicle license, the requirement is 30 days. For more information on driver licensing, see Montana Codes Annotated 61-5-103 and the Department of Justice Motor Vehicle Division Driver Licensing page.
For purposes of fishing and hunting licenses, you are considered a resident after 180 consecutive days. After residency has been established, you must live in Montana at least 120 days a year; your principal home must be located in Montana; you must file state income tax returns as a resident (if required to file); vehicles operated in Montana must be licensed and titled as required by law; you can be registered to vote only in Montana; and, you can not claim residency in any other state or country for any purpose. There are different requirements for members of the armed forces. For more information, see Montana Codes Annotated 87-2-102 and the Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
For the purposes of higher education, a student must be domiciled in Montana for one year immediately preceding registration. Attendance as a full-time student is not sufficient to qualify for residence. For more information, see Montana Codes Annotated 20-25-201.

3 different vehicles.

Actually, the original subject was a Canadian buying and registering a trailer in Montana, to be taken to Arizona and left there.
I said all they needed in order to buy and register a vehicle here was a local address.
Then the fight started.
Then, there was a disagreement about 30 days or 60 days for residency, so I posted the applicable section of Montana Code Annotated.
Now, I am done with the whole mess.
It has become boring.

Kind of wandered off the subject, subject was a non resident licensing of an RV . Your whole deal was bringing in revenue for Montana, Let me ask, how many people have you helped using your address in Montana.
