I believe you don't have a choice. I have two trailers and the licence just came in the mail for both of them. No need to make a deciscion,from what I understand, the State does it for you.

Gentlemen,

Leechlake IS correct in that there is NO choices regarding current & future licensing of trailers. It is a "one-time" cost for the life of the trailer ownership. I have 2 trailers and both are the same charge of $25 tax with 4.50 filing fees each. One is a #1500 GWB and the other is a 3000GWB so size, apparently regarding these 2 weights anyway, makes no difference.
$29.50 ea. for life of both.

I've got one coming up for renewal also. Is it true you don't need the plate anymore?? just the sticker on the tongue?? I saw a utility trailer in a parking lot the other day with a sticker on the plate that said perm reg with no year. What's up with that?

I got a perm lic. plate for my boat trailer, not a sticker. I heard about the stickers, too. Is there a choice?

I was given the lifetime sticker for a recently-purchased utility trailer and told to take off the existing plate. Only additional information I was given was to make sure I filled out the proper transfer form if I ever sold the trailer so that the new owner would have the lifetime exemption. I had to pay a transfer fee plust he sticker price for a total of about $50.

Here is the correct information regarding the trailer license regulations:

Attention Trailer Owners...

* New Legislation Effective July 1, 2001, requires all non-recreational trailers registered at 3000 pounds or less to have permanent registration by 2005.

* Save $9.50 by going to permanent registration at this time. Just pay the amount shown on your renewal notice

* Opt to renew for one more two-year period by submitting a payment of $14.50 instead of the total shown on your renewal notice. Permanent registration will be issued at the next renewal time and will cost $24.50.


I got this information directly from the Dept. of Public Safety HSOforum.

http://www.dps.state.mn.us/dvs/Registration%20Guide/Guide%20Frame.htm

Now it says non-recreational trailers but our boat trailer had the same regulation. Yes you do only get a sticker for the tounge and you pitch the plate.

I hope this information has helped.

I bought a lifetime license last year and I got a sticker for a license plate at that time. They just sent me a new sticker with instructions to take off the existing license plate. The only thing I can think of is that they are doing this to make sure a person does not license one trailer and keep switching plates. My uncle is a cop and just shakes his head when we talk about it. It is a hard one to figure out. If you are a delinquint trying to hide from the law, it is probably your best idea to put on the trailer when you drive around because then the cops can't run your plates. What are they thinking?

I had the lifetime liscene for mine last year; before it was made mandatory. I got the new tounge sticker in the mail, and put it on; but left the exsisting plate with the old perm sticker on it as well. One can never be too safe. There are two little stickers, seperate from the tounge sticker on the same sheet. Anyone know where those go?

Crawler,

I put one on the old License Plate over my old yearly Blue tag and the other one I put on my forehead grin.gif

I would assume that a tent camper trailer falls under the title of recreational trailer, and as I posted above the new lifetime license does not apply.

We've only received the tounge sticker when we renewed, but that was this year only. I am not sure about the extra stickers that you get.

    • Where did you hear that food plots were to be banned?   I have seen about banning "feeding deer"  which I took to mean the classic set up a feeder and dump corn and alfalfa in it.     Jumping on areas immediately has been shown to be successful in preventing isolated cases from spreading and becoming endemic.   Once it becomes established in the herd, it seems as if controlling it is no longer possible.   It also seems as if CWD is fairly hard to catch for a deer, or else it would be all over everywhere and all the deer in an area like Dane county would have it.    Oh, and the infected deer could have come from a deer farm, or from Iowa where it has been detected in the county bordering MN on the SE.    
    • I wouldn't call myself wealthy, but I've made good life choices that have enabled me to buy my own land.  Still pack my own lunch and watch for sales at the grocery store.  I don't own land in SE MN, I own land in northern MN.  The reason I am concerned is that this will serve as a template for herd control tactics in other parts of MN.  Understand that the game management agencies have conferences where they talk about managing hunters.  You don't have to look any further than the work of Dr. Gary Alt in Pennsylvania.    I can't put my finger on exactly what is going on with the results the DNR has presented.  Were the samples snuck in by a nefarious actor?  I wouldn't rule it out.  Was the disease always here and just finally discovered?  I don't see why not.  Is there a unique environmental reason that CWD hasn't gotten a broad foothold here?  It's possible.    If the agency had some credibility going into this, I'd be on board pounding kool aid myself, but they don't.  So color me skeptical.  None of the WI border counties along zone 3 have CWD according to this map.  However, Burnett and Polk do and there is no monitoring on our side up there.  Can a scientist explain that to me?  Because the geographic barriers up there are non-existent compared to  the Mississippi River along zone 3.       
    • I made the decision to replace the pump every few years rather than the carpet.
    • On my aluminum skid house I've been using thread cutting stainless steel screws from Fastenal
    • There might be a pleasant surprise in the works.   In the meantime, it is entertaining to watch anyway....      
    • Huh---Guess you must have the butthurt.
    • You are cooking it before you eat it right? I've only heard people using Cure when using dehydrators or may be for jerky when using burger. I have never used the stuff but don't like or make dehydrated jerky.   Seem to still be alive!
    • Creepworm, I am somewhat angry.  The reason it's fool hardy to consider food plots any more threat than a farm field is that the intentions of the planter don't change the flavor of the forage.  A food plot is no more attractive than the edge of a 160 acre bean field that meets a fence line, swamp edge, or grove.     Now imagine there are no farm fields or food plots at all, not even a decent yielding apple tree.  Deer will still communicate via scrape trees and licking branches during the rut.  If the current belief is that the prions spread via saliva, what's to stop wild deer from licking a branch that an infected buck has licked?  What's to stop a buck from rubbing their face all over a contaminated branch?    My fear is that lots of deer are going to be slaughtered in an area that just happens to have been a hot target for eradication before CWD was found.  I'm also worried we're going to get all kinds of bad rules imposed that won't do squat to actually stop the spread if the disease is actually in MN.  I'm worried we'll lose a critical habitat tool that allows us in harsh winter kill areas to help the deer make it through winter (food plots).    It'd be interesting to watch the DNR try to ban food plots.  Good luck defining what is and is not a food plot. 
    • Don't know how they got there.  Maybe they got confused with CWD and wandered up from Iowa.   Or maybe there are a few more but they didn't happen to get shot or didn't get tested.     So, you are a wealthy land owner?  Is the land in 348?     Sure, you are free to question the DNR.   I never said you weren't.   And you, so far as I know, are free to refuse to cooperate with the program to control CWD.   As I have said, that is exactly the response of the land owners in Wisconsin that I recall from back in the day.     However I am curious.   Are you accusing the DNR of planting or fabricating this instance of cwd for some nefarious purpose, like killing most of the deer in that area for unknown reasons?   Or do you just think that these were the only two sick deer and everything will be fine without any action? 
    • Nice product.  Would work great with my Lindell Ice Rigs....
