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.

I think "progressive" is the new name for "liberal" . Minnesota is that.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
