Exclamation trailer rigs.... how many of you registered them?

So I'm thinking of making a purchase on a trailer rig but have wondered about certain laws and regulations in the state of RI. I've seen so many pics of trailer rigs and no plates anywhere on them. I know the laws vary from state to state, but I wonder if I would need to register a BBQ trailer in my state. How many of you guys out there have rigs that are registered and have plates?

I have my rig registered and insured here in Colorado. They are both manditory. I have my smoker mounted on a 20' trailer. I'm not sure if size matters.

Where did you hear that at? I had to register my last one as a homemade trailer. They didn't ask me about springs. I hope this is true because I'm about to get another one

FWIW in Minnesota, trailers can get a lifetime license and you put a sticker on the tongue. Would a quick google search for RI's DMV help you out?

It's definitely a state-by-state process, here in New Mexico everything must be titled, registered and licensed. And inspected if it was ever licensed in another state, very strict here.

Though after looking now I'm not sure. Says farm trailers with no springs don't need tags. Nothing specific about smokers

Though I do not own a trailer, this is a page that has what you should need: http://www.dmv.ri.gov/registrations/trailer/

A quick look shows it appears anything with a carrying capacity over 3k lbs needs to be registered/titled (unless older than 2001) and anything over 1k needs a safety inspection.

Thanks for posting that... I did hive them a call later on this afternoon and the woman told me it needs to be registered. Seems like a pita to since the person I buy it from will have to provide proof of ownership so I can legally transfer it to my ownership. The funny part is the insurance company says its covered under my fords liability. So all in all it won't be terribly expensive.


I was originally looking at patio Lang's, but since there seems to be none available the larger trailer rigs can be had used for the same price of a shipped 36, or 48.
