Folks that live in mobile homes usually pay property tax even if they rent the land. Even if a mobile home has no tenants, the property owner gets to pay the property tax. There is a gray area between RV's and mobile homes and they might be getting ready with the black paint.

One more thing that NY trailer owners may not realize. Instead of sending your registration in when you receive it in the mail. I wait until about a week before our first trip and register it then. They will pro-rate the fee. The drawback is, it has to be done AT the DMV, you can't send it in. It saves us, on average, $50 on a $130 registration every year. If you go online and make an appointment at your local DMV office before you go, it's usually only about a 15 minute wait.

Just go to Wampsville, Pulaski or Fulton instead of N Syr. I've always done mine around mid-late May to re-new.

So trailer registration goes from January to December? No matter when you actually register? And you only have to pay from the time you register? That is not bad. Don't tell your politicians - they will stop that immediately!

In Connecticut, unless I'm mistaken, registration simply starts on the day you register the trailer or vehicle. Then the state sends you a demand every so often for more money (otherwise known as "renewal").

5th wheel trailers in many states only need to register and pay the fee once. North Eastern states like to charge a renewal fee every year while finding ways to increase that annual fee. Registration fees are simply another tax and how they classify that fee determines the amount. High taxation is favored in the north eastern states-- especially New York and Connecticut.

That sucks...cause in FL, I don't think my registration costs more than $50 anyway
