Many people travel with RVs and do not wish to fight the DMV in every state on vacation, this is a good alternative.
I believe that the original state DMV written laws have a perpetual plate they can give you at no cost, I’ll investigate that more in the future, for now this is an workable program.
It is a forced registration so one can always argue that such force removes any claim of ownership by the state through general registration practices.
South Dakota tags, easy as pie, be a traveler:The way the gal explains it is, South Dakota is an “open state.” They don’t care if you’re a resident, a Martian, or from Timbuktu. You don’t need a South Dakota address or a South Dakota driver license. It doesn’t matter to them. Use your current home address, business address, whatever. Just call the treasurer’s office, tell them what you want to register and they’ll give you the price and instructions on paperwork. Get the pdf paperwork online, fill it in with Adobe Reader, print it out and send it in. If it’s a motor-home they’ll want the official factory shipping weight or weigh it on truck scales. They consider motor-homes to be non-commercial trucks. You can get a new title without the vehicle ever entering South Dakota…no inspection. It’s pretty simple and painless.
