Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, asked state Parks Director Nancy Merrill how much the RV registration fund brings in each year. The answer: $3.8 million to $3.9 million. The idea is to tap about half of that fund each year for the next two to five years to help run parks that serve RV users, parks officials said. Idaho motorhome and RV trailer owners are required to purchase an RV sticker, which costs $8.50 for the first $1,000 of market value, and $5 for each additional $1,000 or portion thereof. An example: The owner of a $100,000 RV pays $503.50, while the owner of an $8,000 trailer pays $43.50.
