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!)

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
