Register Wheel House

Recommended Posts

My Dad traded a boat last year for a wheel house and I would guess the house was never registered.  We mostly rebuilt it from the ground up because it was too wide to pull down the road. 

Anyway, my Dad passed away early this year before he could register or use it.  It was handed down to me and I am a little confused how to get it registered.  I don't have any receipts for anything and it's 7.5'x12'.  So, under 3k lbs is my guess.  Any ideas?

Thanks!  I went and spoke with the DMV, I was given a sheet for homemade trailers so I can itemize the parts.  Then I need to add up the values to pay sales tax on.  She said I can write "on-hand" for the parts so no receipt is needed.

Just posting for reference.

Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes

I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.

Yup... you're right. 3000# for both brakes and licensing

Interesting.  We are in MN and about a year and a half ago registered one that was completely home-built and we didn't need a weight slip and we didn't have to pay sales tax on most of it because we had already paid the tax on most of the items we bought.  Just wheels and a couple other items bought online that weren't taxed.

I just registered my last week. you don't need a weigh slip but you need to know how much it weighs empty and what the gvw is. There are two spots on the homemade trailer sheet for those two numbers.

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
