Fifth Wheel Tag Renewal

We bought a 2023 Fifth Wheel last year. We just received the bill from the DMV for the renewal tags. Does 800 dollars sound right? Has anyone else paid an astronomical amount like this? Call me cheap but it totally shocked me. That's just as much as we pay for our Dodge challenger. That we drive on the roads almost everyday.

Wisconsin must be the place to be: 

2022, 30' KZ Sportsmen $15.35 yr. for '23/'24.  Our old jayco 5th (26ft) was the same.

We live in Florida and my tag renewal for my F350 and Solitude 390RK was on $145. Those with the higher renewals, check to see if they are ad valorem taxes. It might be time to change states 🙂

I had the same experience with my 5th Wheeler in MS. It's a state by state taxable deal. Less state sales tax means more Vehicle / Road Use tax!  Good Luck with you next years bill.

We just renewed ours here in PA. Our annual registration was around $130. Because our unit is over 13,000 lbs we could get a permanent tag for just over $500. We made the switch. Everybody that intends to keep their units for a while should check if your state offers such an option.

Reneewed my tags yesterday.  $287.14 on a '17 FW, manufactured in '16 and purchased in '18.  One year.  Could have saved $54 and change if I'd done 2 years.  BOHICA...  (Bend Over, Here It Comes Again)

Wow. I guess we have it pretty good in AB Canada. I think I paid something like 80 to register our 5ver and it is a lifetime fee. Our trucks and cars are about the same price but have to be renewed annually.


That is good but let's not get started on basic taxes. They all get ya somehow!!!

Here in AZ, you're limited on the # of times you can buy them, just to keep people from doing exactly this.

In WA anyone can go to DOT and purchase a 3 day trip permit. It used to be $15, not sure what it costs now. Totally legal to NOT license your RV and buy trip permits. Used to do so when WA had insane tab fees.
The OP is not in WA, he’s in CA (what WA does doesn’t necessarily apply anywhere else in the world).


UH, no kidding!!! It was a suggestion to check it out as it can save big $$$.
