Trailer with MN lifetime license traveling through WI & MI


Jim43

Question

Not sure if this has been asked before ?

Anyone know if there would be any issues with Law enforcement towing a trailer registered in MN with lifetime registration

through Wisconsin and Upper Michigan ? No plates on the trailer

anymore.

Do not want to take it if there will issues, but it sure would

come in handy for all my extra fishing gear while heading to

Munising,MI for a weeks vacation.

Wasn't a problem in Wisconsin when we got puller over for no trailer lights (someone must have accidentally unplugged it while unloading the boat). As far as Michigan goes I have no idea.

Thanks for the help on WI, hope someone here knows what MI has to say about them.

Why would you have a problem? If it is registured and current, which a lifetime reg. would be you should be able to use it anywhere.

I know for sure a snowmobile trailer with the lifetime reg. is legal in MI. A boat would have to be the same. And for WI they don't even need a reg. if the trailer is under 3000 lb.

The MN license plate on the car is honored, don't see why the trailer license/registration would be any different. That it's lifetime makes no difference, IMO, it's still a valid registration in the state of residence/registration.

And, like the vehicle, just be sure you have all valid license, registration, insurance, etc. documents with you, just in case.

Have them with me all the time, I just wondered since the trailer no longer has a plate in the back. Its only a home made utility trailer. Weighs around 350lb empty.

Thanks for the info, was worried I would be targeted for not having a plate on the trailer.

Well you might get stopped but they will see that there's no problem as long as the registration and everything else is OK

I agree with Tom. You should have no issues, worst case you get pulled over, show them the lifetime license and you are good to go.

My rig was pulled through 5 states. Even got pulled over (speeding). No problems (and no tickets!)

      Might not have to wear ear plugs when I mow!      That’s a spendy one.  It wasn’t hard to find one of those for $6k.  Comparatively and Ariens of the same size is $4,200.  A home owner grade JD for $3,900.  You could get into a commercial grade Z700 for maybe $8k.   I think the work I did today with mine would’ve killed that one there.

      On the south end...   This year's MN Fishing Opener weekend was not only great weather wise, the walleyes and saugers were caught in good numbers.  A main fish gut hauler working with a number of resorts commented it was one of the most productive opening weekends he has seen based on the amount of fish guts collected after the weekend. The goto presentation was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   Four Mile Bay held good walleyes in 12 - 18'.  Not a surprise as the walleye bite on the river during the spring season was good and as of late, sturgeon anglers have been reporting catching walleyes on sturgeon rigs.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 12 - 15'.  Across the south shore, 18 - 22' was holding good numbers as well.  As you can see, there are lots of fish around.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well.   As a reminder, the limit of walleyes and saugers is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28.0 inches can be kept.  The possession limit in MN is one daily limit of fish. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers hit the lake.  10 - 15' of water was the norm.     Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River has been excellent.  The catch and release season continues through May 15th and then closes until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes were caught in 18 - 25 feet of water, a little deeper than anticipated.  Points were good as were areas with structure.  The morning and evening bite was best.       As water continues to warm, go to spots for walleyes will be neck down areas, shoreline breaks, points and bays.     The goto presentation was a jig and minnow.
