RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES---IN RHYME
Full time RVers must pretend
To live in a single state,
For every rig must display
A valid license plate.
Never mind that it’s a fib,
A necessary story,
For government’s not invented yet
Our legal category.
So we ask in long discussions
Which state shall we claim.
Oregon’s best if buying a rig
Is your immediate aim.
For it has no sales tax, nor Montana,
Nor Delaware back East.
But when it comes to cost of insurance,
North Dakota’s least.
Its also the state of minimum hassle.
But what about income tax?
If you’re making hefty dollars,
You need to know these facts:
No income tax in the state of Wyoming;
Alaska also has none;
Nor Nevada, Texas, South Dakota,
Florida and Washington.
It’s easiest in Livingston
To become a legal Texan.
And be sure to choose a state without
Those troublesome inspections.
The very worst state for your license plate,
As any full timer will warn ya,
For tax and tag and rig inspections,
It’s awful in California.
I’ve settled for New Mexico,
Cheap for this land sailor.
For minimum bucks, one can buy
A permanent tag for your trailer.
So declare a state that fits your needs.
Though regrettable and uncouth,
We tell necessary lies until
They let us tell the truth.
