Getting away with something? 2 of my vehicles have hardly ever left the state they call home the rest are all registered at my PRIMARY residence where I pay taxes, vote, and spend the required time there each year (June 1) and is where I have my drivers license as required. The other states where my vehicles are registered don't require me to change my drivers license because I never spend enough time there. These are facts---getting away with something! I had an international license for several years, suppose you can fault that also. Ever drive a rental car?


As mentioned, the devil is in the details. I already indicated depending on the states, there may be exceptions if the vehicles are not used in your state of residence/domicile.

Since the OP hasn't indicated they have multiple houses across multiple states, the logical assumption until he indicates otherwise is his MH spends most of it's time in AZ, so he is unlikely to be able to take advantage of the same loophole.

The reality is you are "trying to get away with something". If you can afford the purchases to begin with-pay the associated taxes!

I would check your states codes. I work for Coca Cola and all their trucks and trailers were registered in Illinois for many years then
one day they came with all new Calif. plates for all the vehicles. I think you have to be out of the state for a certain amount of time to do it.

I just chatted with someone from the DOR. She said we can maintain our RV registration in SD, but not every county will allow it. The research continues.


There's NO problem keeping your RV registered in SD !
Chat with Americas Mailbox - ask lots of questions.

However - the REAL problem you may/will have is *IF* your DL is not
from AZ - you best have your ducks in a row when you explain it
to an LEO (in AZ).

Like the Mod said - some/most states want their revenue! Some LEOs could care less - some LEOs care A *LOT*. The guy or gal behind the badge may or may not "buy into" your program! "Sign here, tell it to the judge next month, have a nice day - and drive carefully!"

Good luck with "the plan" !!

You run the risk of the Three State Trap. We were always told in the Military to keep DL and Reg in the same state, otherwise it could cause an issue if stopped in a third state with DL and Reg in different States.
Now with everything computerized maybe different as it was in the Sixties.

CKNSLS--I have no idea to what you are referring as I am not "trying" to get away with anything. My vehicles, drivers license, and insurance are all in compliance with the states where they are garaged and insured---I can not have more than one drivers license therefore it is at my primary residence....what I can afford has nothing to do with it and is none of your business really. You might try giving advice on something you actually know something about, like owning more than one home in more than one state.
