For a while there, Washington had a nice flat fee for vehicle licensing. Now we're back to the tonnage system. My tabs for the motorhome cost $33.75. I paid an additional $75 for vehicle weight... combined with a $3 filing and $4 subagent fee came to a total of $115.75. Thats right; $115.75 to have the legal right to operate a vehicle that gets 5mpg at nearly $3/gallon... meaning I have to just about be rich to license AND drive it anywhere. The Crew Cab wasn't as bad. It was like $90 to license and gets 7mpg. And unless I sell Brutus soon I'll have a 2nd Crew Cab to license this June. I guess now I'm seeing the appeal of fuel economy and small tonnage-less transportation.
