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?

I was told that the lifetime license does not apply to my tent camper .

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.

    • So lets recap.   Decriminalization will not reduce prison populations by a noticeable amount.    Will not reduce crime.   Will not reduce monies spent combating drug suppliers and dealers.   Will not lower the consumption rates.    - Will allow regular everyday citizens who use/possess and get caught, not ruin their lives with a crippling criminal record.   May encourage the the habitual users to seek treatment/help.      Which I have no issues with.   My issues are saying with decriminalization it will save tax payers any money.   That's my beef.    
    •   I didn't see the Socialist party listed

    • Nick they are all trash, your party included, until you figure that out you are no better than some blind Trump supporter.
    •   That was a long time ago.   The media has become far more partisan than it was at that time.   

    • You are starting to sound like a helpless snowflake in desperate need of big government to take away the burden of personal responsibility away from you. I try and take a big picture approach and not mico manage our laws based on political views outside of science or common sense.

      No one is advocating for drunk driving or murder to be legal but I guess that doesn't stop you from using wild assumptions without anything to back them up.

      All most of us are asking for is simple freedoms and choices and a government that stays out of the way. Having a bunch of drugs that kill and half of the legal and half of them illegal makes no sense. You either stand for personal freedom and responsibility across the board or you don't, picking and choose this stuff based on political leanings is about as backwards as it gets and you just end up looking like a complete hypocrite. Keeping drugs outlawed because people die is the same kind of reasoning people use to take away guns. All the while you are more likely to die from eating too much McDonalds, you simply can't outlaw stupid people or the things they do and expect that to work. We as a people need to stop trying to control things are completely out of our control, all it does is waste tons of money and time and it does a wonderful job of ruining people's lives.
    • I really don't like a president calling out news media outlets by name and whining about the media. Obama did it with FOX and talk radio and now Trump is doing it with CNN and the NYT's. It's one thing for each men's supporters to do it. But I don't recall GWB or Reagan or Carter calling out the media by name in public.   I don't buy the claim from some(nobody here) that doing such is a sign of a dictator(the same, btw, who cheered BHO doing it). It just makes a president look weak and whiny and looking for other's to blame for their own failures. Not that I'm a fan of the NYT's, but I do believe in freedom of the press even the press I personally don't care much for.   If you're an elected official, the press is supposed to be a thorn in your side
    •   This is what Del was probably talking about and yes he is right, we do have to pick a side or at least a candidate when we go to the polling booth but there is no need to defend every single move the candidate makes and vilify every single move the opposition makes.      I'm not sure what makes us think and behave the way we do, I didn't take enough psychology or anthropology courses in college to answer that question but I do know that to me it is even more repulsive than the small minded thinking that goes in to hating one sports team although they are basically the same as your chosen sports team. I can see liking and rooting for one sports team or political faction over another but the pure hatred for the opposite team is mind boggling to me.     These are the fine points of this article as I see it. Now would anyone like to have a discussion on these points?
    •   This paragraph is important because I believe that most people now when faced with a political discussion do indeed "turn off their intellect". It's the only way to get through the hypocrisy that arises when one chooses a side so completely.

    • 2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition.   On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold.   Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team
