Perminant trailer sticker


Recommended Posts

I was at the DMV yesterday to register my Ranger Reata 1850 trailer. The guy working said I only needed a perminant sticker for my trailer. Well, the sticker is only good for trailers GVW up to 3000LBS.

I am pretty sure that my boat fully loaded is more like 4000lbs plus.

Anyone else have a perminant sticker when you should have plates on the trailer?

I really don't want to re-purchase a new registration at this point. I don't imagine the DMV will give me a refund and issue the correct plate at this point.

Has anyone been stopped or delt with the DMV on this issue?

My Ranger catalog lists your trailer as a 4500 pound trailer. Consider yourself lucky that you got the sticker. I have friends with tandem axle trailers and the permanent sticker and have never had any trouble with the law.

IF, and I mean IF you ever get pulled over for it you have the defense of that is what the DMV gave you.

I went the other way...My pontoon was issued a regular plate which has to be renewed every year. You are also supposed to have trailer brakes if over 3,000# (maybe 3500#). I managed to get a permanent sticker for it and threw the license plate out. Nobody ever checked one way or the other.
