registration and selling a trailer

3 posts in this topic

I have an old trailer that I want to sell but I have no idea where the paperwork for the registration is. It has the permanent sticker on the tounge. Can I just write the buyer a bill of sale and have them take that to the DMV? Anybody gone through this before? Thanks.

Take the sticker number to the DMV. They can look up anything registered to you by using your DL number. You can get a form to transfer the title.

Its surprising how lenient the DMV is with transferring ownership/registration of trailers and recreational vehicles. blush.gif

With a trailer, all you'll need is the plate # or the sticker #. It should have the lifetime trailer tongue sticker assuming the registration is current. If it still has plates, they'll need to pay for the lifetime license.

The buyer will have to pay sales tax on the trailer when they go to the DMV to register it. Seller is "supposed" to sign something as well.

If you want to be proactive, go down to the DMV and tell them you have a trailer you are selling and they should provide you with all the details.

Simple Bill of Sale is a good idea as well.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
