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.

    • LOL.  It's so brave of you to join the 85%.
    • Why would they bother cutting a measly 8 to 10 trillion from the debt?   And why would they consult with a kook like Rand Paul?      
    • First, I am Christian and I'm not ashamed of it.  Second, the 1st amendment to our US Constitution guarantees that the government shall not make any laws respecting the establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof.    This means that the government is not permitted to endorse or decide for the people what religion, if any, the people will follow. At the same time, there is nothing in the law that declares that we the people are restricted from expressing our personal religious views or beliefs. Therefore, it is well within my rights to share my Christian views whenever I wish except I cannot use government property or my position as a representative of the government as a forum to do so.
    • Drum roll please................. The clear cut winner was the sinking radish seed by a 4-1 margin over the floaters. I even gave the floaters an extra day to pop up but they didn’t. I know come planting time I am going to check my radish seed this way. I also hear this works for tomato seed so that may be my next experiment but not till I am ready to start growing my tomatoes. Peppers come to mind as another seed to try out.   Now the radish I have seeded will not go to waste I saw a program where a guy plants radish and lets it grow to about three inches then cuts the top two and half inches off. He sells the tops to restaurants who use it on plates and also in sandwiches. You are suppose to be able to eat the tops at this stage and it tastes like radish... Kind of like eating sprouts but only eating the top of the new growth not the bottom...
    • Yep, I have noticed that too. That is a good thing to have in your back pocket in playoffs and you get caught in your zone for an icing or who knows what reason where you cannot switch lines OR just to have flexibility with matchups line vs line, but faceoff on one side vs the other.
    • Meh, his exacts words were " I tried to set myself on fire."   Setting yourself a blaze is fairly simple and effective if you want to be on fire.   I'll put him in the bat poop crazy, drama queen Zoloft category along with a former girlfriend.   You know, the one that chokes down a handful of Bayer and chases it with a fifth of vodka then proceeds to call 911 right after. Then everyone has to listen why, all the while there was no real danger.   
    • To be honest, I think of the cross as representing a burial site of a fallen soldier.  I don't necessarily even think religion when I look at the thing. In my opinion it is not even a religious symbol in that context. But that's just me.
    • The reversible plank is what they were carrying when I picked it up.  I've just been calling it carsiding because it's what most people are more familiar with.    I have that all stained and polyurethaned on the smooth side.  To me the bead side looks kind of dated.
    • Something else to keep in mind. When I was bow hunting I learned judging distance is not as easy as one might think. The bow I used was not super fast so judging a deer to be at 30 yards when it was really 40 yards would mean missing.    In my experience, we over-estimate distance sometimes by quite a lot on open areas such as open fields or on a lake. On an open area one doesn't have anything to provide a size reference so we tend to think objects are closer than they really are. Sometimes we can be off by quite a bit.   It works just the opposite in the forest where we have lots of references for size. Most of the time when a guy says he shot his deer from 50 yards it is probably a good bet that it was not quite that far. Personally, I don't like to get too close to anyone else. When on open water I rarely fish where others are. This can sometimes work against me as there is probably a reason for them being there. When ice fishing I try to stay 50 yards or more away from others. At the very least, I don't want to be close enough that our lines could become crossed when handling fish.
