Hello Alan

I was looking at your postings in RC Forum, and was compelled to register. My wife and I who live in the UK are planning a trip from January for about 6 months and would like to purchase a new class A. Obviously we would like to do this with the least amount of tax etc., and I can see from your posts that you may have found a way to do this. I am in the US at the moment looking at RV's and tow cars, so would really appreciate your help.

Many thanks

Jeremy Hill

Hi Jeremy

Please take a look at the Library, as mentioned by Tom.

The first thing I would say, is that you MUST be out of the EU for 12 months before you can claim the tax-free allowances.

Good Luck

Sorry, I was refering to tax free import into the UK.

I believe you are refering to tax free purchase in the US - in which case you will want to go down the LLC route (as long as your purchase is above a certain $$).

This is probably a silly question but is sales tax applied just to new vehicles or does it apply to used rigs as well?

Here in California sales tax is levied on both new and used vehicles. Sales tax is collected by the dealer or, if you buy from a private party, the sales tax is collected by the DMV when you change the title to reflect your ownership.

Thanks Tom

I am retiring next year and will be hoping to make a couple of extended visits a year for a couple of years.  Thanks for your prompt reply. I am sure to have other questions as my research progresses

Another difference in sales tax handling that varies by state is when you purchase from a dealer with a trade in.  Some state will tax on the gross sales price while others will tax on the net (after trade in).

Some states such as Montana, Oregon, and New Hampshire have no sales tax.

There is no uniformity in how states charge and collect sales tax. Here in AZ, if you buy from a dealer, you pay the tax, if you buy from an individual, you don't.

In Colorado, you pay sales tax on the purchase price of vehicle purchases, new or used. And in most cities and counties, there's also additional sales tax for those entities.

[From One Auzzi to another.
Go the llc in Montana route
The insurance issue mentioned will be applied because you dont have a US licence. Unless you can find some company that will accomadate you, !!  Progressive they are not!!   Try Good Sam??
So do your research into which LLC provider suits you.
Then when you get the purchase sorted , they will post the plates etc .  Then contact an RV park in Montana , this gives you a Montana address, or use a PO box( not acceptable in some states.)  Get yourself a Montana drivers licence at the RV park address, if the insurance premiums are horrendous ( which some companies are).
We are going back to do it again but for 2 years , we have to leave each 3 months, but you can stay in Canada for 5 months, if you can judge the weather!
It does all work and you have no issues with Taxes etc from other states, as you are not a resident of any other State
