    Could I be the sole person on the title and have my father and I on the registration? Not to keen on putting my father on the title.

    Please don't forget that the boat will not have a title. Reg only.

    So since there is no title "if" I financed the boat would there just be a lien holder on the registration? I am paying cash though, kinda weird not having a title on anything. Like I said he gave me the title that is from CA but like another member said he just did it through the mail and that's probably why he still has the CA title. So what do I do with the CA title? Just frame it on the wall lol. I guess all I need is a written bill of sale to take to the fish and game correct? Thanks for all the help Ultra.

    Can anyone tell me when I go to fish and game what do I take? The old CA title? Or just a bill of sale from the owner? Or is there something else I need from the owner? Sorry bout all the questions.

    A bill of sale and the signed off CA title should do it, unless the seller signed off of the AZ reg and had it notarized. Then that would be enough.

    Ok talked to fish and game today. All I need is a bill of sale and the registration has not been paid since september but since I am the new owner there will be no late fee. Now if I register it as non resident I will owe $259+$4 and then come september another $259+$4. If I add my father as a co-owner on the registration (title) I will only have to pay $35+$4 from now on. Trailer will stay registered in CA under my name. Ugh decisions decisions.

    259+4... you alone

    Seems high? Try registering it in CA and pay tax on the sale & your luxury tax & registration fees...

    Trust us when we say the 259+4 is worth it in the long run. And your paying towards our lakes and projects... everybody wins!!!

    So my Mom, who is 88 and has not driven for 10 years and who gave up her AZ DL is not a resident of the state she has lived in for 40 years?

    Constitutionally I doubt that the Founding Fathers wanted us to all have drivers licenses as a requirement for residency. That would mean that you could not vote in AZ without a DL and I know that is not the case.

    I'm sure he understands that there are AZ residents who don't drive. Seems he was making a general comment. Another way to look at it is your can't be an AZ resident and hold a CA D/L.

    Boatcop (Alan) has schooled us on this issue countless times.

    Also, to the OP, keeping the trailer reg'd in CA in the right thing to do.

    Nope not saying that because in their system it shows on one point she did have a AZ D/L. In this particular case you cannot register or claim AZ Residency without a valid AZ DL. I have a valid AZ ID Card, but cannot claim residency.

    Trust me wasn't saying it was high in AZ or complaining about it. I was just stating the registration pay scale so that people that might not know like myself can see what they are. CA and their luxury tax and all the other BS would be double I know that not to mention the private party sales tax.
