Colorado Registration.

Just curious what the lovely state of Colorado is getting for the plates on these toy haulers. Have to plate my V3605 here pretty soon.

Unfortunately in Colorado, the fees are quite high. They take a lot of thing into consideration in order to extract the most out of your wallet. If you bought from a dealer then you already so some of the cute tax they put on you, if you bought from a private party then you get the privledge of really getting hit at the DMV. There are several fees, lincense fees, owner ship taxes, etc. They base the fees on a % of the MSRP, totaly weight to name a couple. The beauty of it all, it is a big surprise when you go in. Because they can't tell you in advance how much it is going to be. Here is a link to adams county to give you an example of how to can maybe "ball park" your estimate. Good luck. I just bought a 2014 Dutchman Voltage 3950 and am already sweating that visit to get the plates.

It's based off MSRP just like a car/truck, annually. When I registered my 3950 last year it was around $4K for the first plate.

I hope that $4k included sales tax.

That's not sales tax I paid state and county sales tax at the dealership, the dealership then sent me a check for the amount of the county sales tax payable to the DMV. the ~4K I paid was beyond the sales taxes, it's Colorado's road use tax. Anything new you pay boat loads for that first plate, it does get slightly better over the first 5 years, then starts to really drop off after 5 years.
As for sales taxes I'm glad I live in an unincorporated county area so I don't get hit with the city tax as well.

Edit: Here's a quote from the DMV site.
Specific Ownership Taxes
  • These taxes are based on the year of manufacture of the vehicle and the original taxable value which is determined when the vehicle is new and does not change throughout the life of the vehicle.
  • Ownership tax is in lieu of personal property tax. Vehicles do not need to be operated in order to be assessed this tax.
  • The ownership tax rate is assessed on the original taxable value and year of service
    • Original taxable value is 85% of manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP).
    • The annual specific ownership tax is based on the year of service.
I forgot all the CRS statutes I went through to try to estimate the RV SOT, and even the DMV will not estimate it over the phone, Dealers will not talk about it, so be prepared for a bit of sticker shock when you pick up your first plate.

Edit2: Here's a link I believe I used to get a good idea of what to expect.

And I thought California was bad. I paid 8% sales tax on the selling price and $455 for the plate on mine. Next year it will just be plate, aka new sticker that is.

Mine ended up being $1800 and change. Still a huge amount for plates but a lot less than I was thinking I was going to pay. We pay a lot to drive in colorado when it comes to registering vehicles, but in the end we get wonderful smooth roads to drive it....LOL. I don't even know what smiley face I should use for sarcasm.

What I do is like the quote [sarcasm] [/sarcasm]. We go to Texas often and can always tell when we hit the state line - the roads get better. Seems a real shame to me that 2-lane highways in Texas are better than Interstate highways in Colorado.

Oh, and our plates were $1300 and some change last year. Coming up for renewal soon and will be interested in seeing if the go down or up.

My title papers got lost by UPS. So I got my RV from Windish on May 7th. Now on my second temporary tag. Kinda hoping they don't find it and I get another temp...then it will be pretty much after the RV season before I have to pay for the plates!!!

Good ol' Colorado!

Paid last week... $1800. In CO they basically luxury tax us and call it a valuation tax. Valuation doesn't have anything to do with what we paid for the unit. You know its a racket when a 30k rig with 3 axles is paying less than 1/3rd of what our 3 axles rigs pay. Same roads, similar weights... ouch.

You know, I've been thinking....my Dad had several trailers, but paid for one plate, and moved it around to whichever trailer he was towing.

I've got four trailers including the Voltage.

Hmmmm.....

Anyone ever been asked for the registration for their RV?

Hmmm.....

Yes, and no. I have three other trailers aside from the RV and I was once stopped in one of those DUI random check points. I had mistakenly put the tab for one trailer on the wrong license plate. They caught that, and fortunately, since I was able to produce the registration for the other trailer, let me slide. They just told me to fix it when I got home.

My trailer plate is $70 and my TV plate is $110. But then we make up for with some of highest fuel taxes in NA.
