Taxes - Residence - Registration

Now retired - modest income - van being converted for travel & camping - used sailboat to be purchased when a suitable example of a particular model is found - intend to travel and sail interesting places until it''s no longer fun or we want to do something else.

We currently live in WA - no state income tax, but a sales tax (7.7-8.1% or there abouts). Cross the boarder and OR has no sales tax, but does have a rather regressive income tax.

Is/are there states that have niether a sales nor an income tax?

If not, which states have the most ''advantageous'' combination?

With no property or ties, and going mobile, I''m assuming we can choose any state as our residence - set up to handle mail and get drivers licenses. We would then register the van and boat in that new state. We aren''t trying to cheat the system, just make it work for us and not spend more than we have to.
