Counting my woes, not whoas. Bought a used trailer through a dealer awhile ago and when the paper work was done, realized I failed to consider the added fees. Taxes and doc fees were something I hadn't originally thought about. In shopping for a new trailer, I've learned to ask for the final cost when purchasing from a dealer. Gotta do my homework better!

Just like buying a vehicle...Inventory Tax, Prep fee, documents fee, sales tax where applicable, Tuesday afternoon between 2p-2:30 fee and anything else they can add on there. Sorry you didn't know about it until it was too late. Most I've seen, you can still back out until you sign on the dotted line. Hope at least you're happy with the trailer..

Depends on the dealership. Sales tax is the only thing that we add, and there are those buyers who are exempt from that. Preparing documents and checking out and presenting the product are part of doing business and servicing the customer.

You are going to pay any sales tax you owe sometime. If you buy from a dealer in your state, they usually collect. If you buy from out of state or from an individual, you'll pay it when you apply for title. So it isn't if, but when on that. Doc fees and such, silly. I saw a great big dealership's Bill of Sale the other day where a friend paid $250. And the finance company she went through tagged her for another $250 as I recall.
So yes- you are right- ask questions. A good dealer won't mind answering them.

If you can pay up front, ask for the MSO or title. If the dealer still wants to charge a documentation fee ... Walk out. Go to another dealer.
Visit your state DVM website and get informed of their requirements. Then go to your local DMV office to title & register it yourself. Sometimes the title office wants a form notarized. Simply print the online form and take it to your bank.
Keep hundreds of $$ in your pocket
