As far as I know...It has no kind of title. And, he's at a LOT of his business (parking his other trailers) so, I don't feel he's shady about the deal...So to speak. I thank you in advance for some advice.

I am taking a shot that you are from Ohio.

I bought and registered a dump trailer with a bill of sale. I don't think it was notarized. When registering it to a business I didn't have to have the trailer weighed however. This is all in Montgomery County.

I called and went through the whole process before going in, get everything together and head over only to find out the woman on the phone had no idea what she was talking about ....2 weeks later and were finally on the road.

Its govt. There's always a know-it-all in every office....

Yeah, Columbus, Ohio...Sorry folks.
Thanks for the reply (among the others too).

I've never taken something like this to the BMV. Plus, trying to wrestle a tag out of them with a paper THEY might not think is good enough could be more worse than the initial trailer purchase.

So I take it, the bill of sell has worked. Thanks.

That's the key thing to check, however I just found out about his plan and the BMV is closed.
Thanks.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Some states register some trailers as homemade. I looked at one the guy told me was homemade. It looked way too good to be homemade. Didn't take much I saw "Trailer King" stencils on the front, by the tongue. It had been painted over. I also found 2 small holes that I suspect held the small metal plate that had a serial number on it.
Not saying that is the case with yours.

Look at how many trailers have Maine tags on them, Maine doesn't title trailers that are old (10yrs?) so just a bill of sale there.

I can't remember what a trailer dealer told me exactly over the phone(he doubted I fell under the rule), but he said something about it being homemade and under 4,000lbs, that no title is required/offered.
I'm not sure about the 10yr thing, here in Ohio.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Did some remodeling in my work trailer that I have been wanting to do for a while.

Some of the things I did. New mic and frig, countertop material on front bench , light and extra storage above bench. drawers and tool box center section. Regular RV converter and breaker panel for lights and RV furnace. Also auto transfer switch so can leave gen pluged in all the time while hooked to the truck .

I work in this alot during the winter doing exterior remodeling, My brake never leaves the trailer. So I want this to be as easy and comfortable to work in as it can be. It is my shop on wheels. During the winter I just turn the thermostat down low so the trailer is nice and warm when I come to work.

I would show the back of the trailer, but it is not cleaned up yet from doing the other work , maybe today.

They are the ones with leather on them for a belt. I just grind the rivets off and screw them to the wall.

Not sure, but I think Tennessee doesn't require anything for trailers (tags or titles). I know when I bought my dump trailers there, I asked about a buyer's tag for the trip home and was told Tennessee doesn't require license plates on trailers. I did get a manufacturer's certificate of origin so I could title it in Texas.

It reminded me of the TV show, Monk, when he was about to leave his apartment. He stepped out and then immediately came back in to turn one of the umbrellas around so they would all be the same. I am similarly afflicted.

Anything here that runs on the road has to have a plate. Snowmoblies, frontend loads backholes. all that kind of stuff. And equipment on a state job can't use red diesel neither.
