Probably don't have the same cost impact getting rid of abandoned cars as RVs. In some cities RV owners are transferring title on the RVs for free to individuals who park them on city streets and then live in them until they are used up and become a hazard/drug den, etc. Then the city has to come along, haul them away, and dispose of them at the city's expense. Cars are cheaper to haul away when abandoned, may not be abandoned at the same rate, and may have more residual value.

And the RV Sanitary Disposal fee probably supports the free dump stations around the state, not disposing of old RVs.

I just renewed my tabs on my 2015 170 2500. I converted it to a camper, but didn't go through the process of changing the registration yet, so this is for a cargo van. Seattle area, but not Seattle proper.

Registration filing $4.50
Gross weight $93
Transportation benefit district $20
Registration service fee $8
RTA Excise Tax $351 (ouch)

Total $476.50

Coming this November, Initiative 976 purports to "fix" this. The "base tax on KBB instead of MSRP" part of the initiative sounds good to me, but I suspect they are throwing the baby out with the bathwater by proposing to get rid of the RTA fees (and other fees like it) altogether; I would be very surprised if the initiative passes.

I've only been in Washington a few years now, and I'm not familiar with all of the local politics, especially for the RTA which is only in the GSA (and I'm NOT in the GSA by design). It seems like there are some big taxing issues, especially if something like the RTA add-on fee for a vehicle is being based on MSRP and not the actual value of the vehicle (is it really based on MSRP?).

The town that I live in seems to have hedged their bets anyway. Last fall they eliminated our local vehicle "tab fee" of $20/year that was being used to pay for road maintenance, and replaced it with a slight boost to the local sales tax. Apparently the logic is that the people from out of town who pass through and spend money should fund our roads instead of the people who live in the town - their propaganda in favor of the change pointed out that residents would probably see less than a $20 increase in their local sales tax paid, but the road maintenance fund would see a big boost in revenue due to the non-locals who would also be paying the increased sales tax. Shady stuff in my opinion.
