No you don't. The trouble is finding the right clerk that's smart enough to figure out what you're trying to do. It took me 2 different DMV's and 3 clerks. And I got lucky that the last clerk had just done this on her husband's truck. They'll warn the #### out of you about getting pulled over and weighed by state cops. Just keep telling them you never tow anything and it's a 100% personal vehicle.
We didn't on the 2011 vw. I just sent an LES. And the truck I also just send an LES. oh and asked my DOT trooper buddy bout truck tags. Pretty much if you tow a lot you should get them just because some guys will check. But guys just towing once in a while can "risk" it.
I have painstaingly been going through this a$$ pain for almost 10 years. Regarding the tags, IIRC, truck tags are a lower yearly rate and does allow a inch or so higher for your bumper. I had truck tags (transfered the same ones when i went to a Dodge) on my 2004 F350 CC LB SRW and then on my 2006 Dodge 2500 CC SB. When I purchased my latest 2006 F350 in my signature, i had to restrain myself at DMV (wait time will do that) when the young gentleman assisting me, was giving me regular tags. I asked about the truck tags and he said I was shy "one-pound". My wife seen I was getting red and just said, we'll take care of it later. Either way, its b/s.
Regarding the titling and military status for property tax relief. All of my vehicles are in my name. After my wife and I married, we had a joint title on her Tahoe, and it was a hefty amount of property tax for Virginia. So now, we keep any vehicle in my name only and just provide a LES for my TX home of residence.
