Yes, you can get the plates 90 days before you arrive. Our mail forwarder Alternative Resources will act as your agent and I assume the other larger mail services in SD provide the service as well.

This is false. You can get SD plates by mail anytime, even if you never come.

What about annual vehicle inspections and inspection fees in Texas ?

You will pay about $15-$40 annually:

https://www.dps.texas.gov/RSD/VI/CostOfInsp.htm

The good news is you are only required to get an inspection (safety in all counties, and emission in 17 counties) when you are in TX. You do not have to get an inspection until then. For those years you don't go to or through Texas, you do not need to get inspection. But as soon as you return or pass through Texas, you need to get an inspection within a few days.

Texas is about $26 for inspection, but inspection is required until you return to TX. Drivrrs Lic renewed by mail at least once (additional six years).

TN is the abbreviation for Tennessee. I know there are some mail forwarders based there, no income tax but a pretty high sales tax.

In Michigan on a trailer I paid $250 for a permanent plate.

I too am looking to go FT in the next few months.  Currently in Oregon but will likely change my 'residence' to TX or FL and use Escapees as my address.  I looked at NV but got conflicting answers on using a mail forwarding service, so am a little hesitant there.  Also NV DMV fees are quite high.

Probably will be TX, since it is closer to travel to than FL.

I'm retired military, so health care is not a big issue.  Does anyone have any downsides to TX as a residence/domicile for Full Timers?

Thanks.

We still own a home in Michigan - so picking a state of domicile based on taxes, title and registration fees is out of the question for the time being.   Tags for my coach last year ran me $1,049 ....

Owning a home does not constitute domicile. You can own homes in several states without having your domicile in any of them.

I guess I was a little short on the detail.  We've owned and lived in our home in Michigan for 30 plus years, both my wife and I worked within 15 miles of said home for 40 and 24 years respectively, our children attended school from preschool - to high school in the town that the house is located in.   Trust me, as long as I continue to own and arguable inhabit that house (at least part time while we're not off traveling) - we would be hard pressed to make a claim of domicile in another other state.   Were we to sell the house - the door to arbitrarily selecting another state for the purposes of domicile would open.  But, in our current situation ... not a chance.
