Maybe a stupid question, but I like to know if stamp duty is payable when you register a camper trailer in your name??? and if so at what rate? I had a look at the RTA webside but nothing was said about it.
Thanks

Gompy.
Exactly the same as registering a motor vehicle.

gompy,

I paid $250 to re-register an interstate camper worth $2500 into my name in NSW.

Rego fee $51
Motor Vehicle Tax $89
S Yell Trail-Issue $35 ?
Ad- Velorum Stamp Duty $75

10% of the value, I reckon we are being got at.

Hey Richard, If you value the trailer at say, $2,500 does this include all the bits and pieces that you carry 'in' the trailer ? What if you valued the trailer at $1,500 and the bits like the stove, matrasses, crockery, etc. etc. made up the other $1,000 as 'contents', would they go for that ?

covers anything ATTACHED to the vehicle. If you unbolt your bull bar accessories etc and buy them seperate then in theory you wont need to pay stamp duty.

Kiwi,

I had to prove ownership and the bill of sale had the price on it. :(
It did include a 3 burner stove, 2.5L gas bottle, foam queen mattress, battery and thats about it. Not much there.

Richard in that case I see that there would not be much of a saving but I have wondered if this could be done for a larger fully equipped camper. A bit like buying a house - so much for buildings and so much for contents. Total is the same so the previous owner should be happy but you end up with a reciept for basic vehicle and another for 'contents'.

Cost to register or renew a trailer or caravan in St Aust is $53.00 for 12 months plus $21.00 for plates (2 if required no price stated for 1 plate). That's it. Concession fee is $27.00 for 12 months + plates. All inclusive. That includes an Admin. fee as well. There is no GST payable and CTP (Compulsory Third Party) is not required for such vehicles.

If the main camper section is removable, and I guess it has to be, just pay for the trailer as a separate component from the camper.

Then you pay stamp duty on the trailer only. Just as if you bought the trailer and added the camper later.

In WA we were not only paying the highest rate of stamp duty in the nation on vehicles, but the same on trailers including caravans. Last year they took it off trailers to come into line with most other states. What state are you in?
