trailer plates

11 posts in this topic

why does minnisota give you a sticker for the tongue of your boat and other trailers. This seems to be a problem to law enforcement in other states that do not have this or know about it. I came up here from ark. 10 yrs. ago and when i take my boat out of state i ussually always get pulled over for not haveing a plate on back of the trailer. I'm thinking about registering my boat back to ark. so the states south of mn. will quit stopping me wanting to know where my plate is.

I'd rather buy a lifetime sticker, than plates and tabs every few years. How about you get those other states to get rid of their plates?

Yeah. Maybe we're just a little more progressive.

MN is progressive? LOL!!! Regressive is more like it.

How about not requiring a license for boat trailers like other states? Another novel concept this state cannot grasp....

i am confused, if other states dont require a license, why is the tongue tag an issue?

Besides it is a lot harder to take the decal off of the tongue then it is to take plates off a trailer in a crowed parking lot. shocked

A few years back, before they had the lifetime sticker, I got a ticket at a boat lot for now having a plate on my tailer....I had to go and get a duplicate and present my receipt from the original. The lady at the court house said that they were getting many cases of this happening, and most were due to the plates being stolen, not lost. frown

regressive is more like it. Mn. will probably tell me i can't smoke in my boat next. Anyway,the tags or stickers are really an issue i guess, but yes all staes should be one way or the other, then maybe no confusion.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
