    • I attended the rallies with a AS chapter in Texas. Haven’t attended a national rally as of yet. There has been some controversy over how the officers are elected (the officers nominate one person for each position  and the members get to “vote” for that person) along with other issues. The Texas chapter was all about having fun. Hopefully, the controversies will get resolved and the club will thrive again.
    • Do you ever attend their national rallies?
    • I doubt that the IRS cares what address you use but since  NC has a state income tax she will need to file so separate income for tax purposes is probably the only reasonable answer to avoid her paying tax on your income. 
    • John, I went thru the Fla HDT as an RV goat rope a few years ago.  The FIRST thing YOU need to do is call YOUR insurance agent in Fla and ask them about getting insurance for this HDT registered as a "private truck".  If you have the VIN, that will DEFINITELY help.  If your agent is like mine, they will tell you to get insurance on a private truck, you need "commercial exposure".  My agent was never able to explain what that term means.  Once I got the feeling insurance was not going to be possible, I dropped the whole thing.  It was all about the GVWR. A FEW people have been able to get their HDT registered as an RV in Fla.  VERY few.  Now it seems the vehicle registration folks in Tallahassee are MUCH more knowledgeable about folks converting HDTs into RV haulers and it is against Fla statutes.  That knowledge from the state capital has filtered down to the county tax offices. The folks here saying you can't get it registered in SD and have it in Fla are not exactly correct.  SD does not care what address you use.  SD will take your money and give you a SD registration with a Fla address.  There is no SD law that says a SD registered vehicle has to belong to a SD resident.  I suggest you call the folks at America's Mailbox in Box Elder and discuss that option.  With that said, IF you claim Fla as your domicile, Fla MIGHT come after you for having that truck registered out of state with Fla as your domicile.  Why?  Fla needs registration fees, too. Or, if you get it registered as an RV in SD, it MIGHT be easier to get it registered as an RV in Fla.   Unless you are getting the Homestead tax exemptions or other financial benefits in Fla, you might be better off domiciling in SD. What I have written is based on my PERSONAL experience over a 3 month period seeking ways to buy an out of state HDT and get it registered as an RV/Private truck in Fla.  I am still driving my 1-ton dually.  I gave up on the idea. To answer your question I quoted above, I found ONE company in Calif that would insure the truck, registered in Fla, for over $1K a year.  The coverage was ONLY in force while the truck was TOWING the trailer OR going to/from service or fueling.  In other words, no grocery getting or anything like that.  To me, that was too little use to justify the expense.  It was the best decision for me at the time.
    • We were parked near a couple living in an Airstream in Yucaipa, CA a couple of weeks ago. Across the back of the trailer it read, "Toaster on Wheels." They have an interesting website.
