Trailer with MN lifetime license traveling through WI & MI

11 posts in this topic

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!)

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
