    Arizona is warmer in the winter. I have the Miata and motor home registered there. CO required an annual $70 emissions test on the diesel RV on top of the registration. AZ registration is 1/2 of CO and no emissions test.

    Dave: your RV is sprinter engine based? if you have no emissions test you may want to consider looking into a DPF delete. You’ll gain horsepower and a couple of mpg

    Although I am not in this video it expresses a few of my feelings about leaving Colorado in a few weeks. Yes, we will still own our house in Dillon and "We shall return"

    I will still be lurking and seeing if the PNW crowd is half as welcoming and unique as the FFs i have met here and in the Colorado region. If ever headed towards Olympia.. you know how to reach Anne and me!

    I'm not sure what you're asking but our '06 RV has the Mercedes 5 cyl engine and drive train. It's old enough that I don't have to add the pee fluid. CO requires annual inspections on diesels older than 10 yrs. I spent way too much on a Green Diesel Engineering chip reprogram that does kick the turbo in earlier and eliminates the EGR system but doesn't do much for mpg. Shearboy bought a system out of Europe much cheaper and it gives him multiple maps. He's excited over the increase in mpg (although he still hasn't figured out how to read the fuel gauge).

    Yea, but then the rest of us have to breath your stinking carcinogenic exhaust particulates, no thanks, there's good reasons for DPF and cat urine....clean diesels or no diesels

    You appear to be very well versed in the situation. Thank you for your insightful input.

    I can't believe those people are destroying that perfectly good snow, it will never be the same.

    Until the spring. Or the next wind, or winter storm.

    Or set up an LLC here that owns the vehicle(s) in question. Beyond a certain age, it's not even annual registrations...and regardless of age, bikes are permanent registrations. I think I paid a little more here for my 1150 as a permanent reg with a permanent OHV tag (the latter being in-state only, sadly) than for a single-year renewal in Vermont.

    You will need to verify that you can do that legally given where the vehicles are garaged, but there are companies that specialize in setting up Montana LLCs specifically for vehicle registrations.

    Proof reading would be a good idea for me sometimes, usually, always :cromag

    Cars that are more than 10 years old can get permanent registrations in Montana, plus all bikes and at least the small trailers. No sales tax either.

    Lucky there aren't any Diesel powered Sleds people can remove their DPFs and cat urine injection on :devildog
