Registering a bike trailer - March 17, 2009, 12:26 PM

I got a trailer for my bike. It's a bolt together kit so it's brand new. How do I register it with DMV, get a plate?

if you have a MSO, go in and get temp tags, they will do the title at that point too, then go get inspection, after that go back and get proper tags. No insurance is required

The MSO is rivited to the frame on the trailer. This is the trailer I bought. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=42708
Here are some pics of it. The vin and MCO are both rivited to the front of the tow bar.

Should I tow the trailer in to show the MCO or can I do this online somehow?

The trailer I built had no VIN. I had to get a VIN plate from DMV and then call a trooper to come to my house and watch me put it on. (seriously)

you got the vin plate but no paperwork ? take your bill of sale to the MVA and they will title it.

I got my bolt together trailer from Harbor Freight and they gave all the necessary paperwork at purchase. No such luck eh? I would assume that an ebay bill of sale would suffice.

yeah should have gotten a paper that looks like a title but smaller, you sure you don't have it? Things will be much more difficult without it

So I went down to the DMV yesterday and was told I couldn't do "anything" without the MSO. They would not accept the metal plate on the trailer. I can't get a new one from Harbor Freight either. Anyone got any suggestions? Should I just take the original VIN off and apply for a new one?
