mn wheel house laws

Recommended Posts

So I picked up my first ice castle. Its a 6 1/2 by 14 toy hauler style. Do I need a license plate on the back?? And where do I go to register it for my shelter license? I've never owned a house I needed a shelter license for, only had pop ups before. Thanks!

Yes you need a license plate just like a regular trailer and anyplace that sells fishing license will sell you a shelter license.

If it's a single axle trailer in MN you don't need a license plate, just a lifetime tag on the tongue.

The way it was explained to me was if it is under 3000 Lbs and used strictly for ice fishing I can have the lifetime license. If it is over 3000 Lbs or is used for anything else, such as deer camp or summer camping, then I would need the RV plate. I have the 6.5 X 14 with the plate.

^That what I heard too. If I remember right I was looking at a new Ice Castle Red Lake version 6.5 x 14 and it had a bracket for a full size license plate on the back.

I have no bracket for a plate, so don't know where to put it. If you don't mind me asking, what did y'all pay for the rv license

I have a 6.5 X 14 and the county where I live made me buy the RV license because it has a potty room and cook stove.

Built a 6.5' X 12' + 3'V last year. Local deputy registrar only asked about the weight and they went ahead and licensed it with a permanent tag. (I did have to include receipts to show I had already paid sales tax on the materials or I would have to pay sales tax again.)

The GVWR should be listed on a placard on the frame of the trailer and on the title if it has one or the MSO (Manufacturers Statement of Origin) if it doesn't have a title yet.

Up to 3000lb gets a permanent registration sticker, over 3000lb gets a license plate. Number of axles isn't a factor.

From the MN DPS site:

Policies and Procedures

​Trailers

Small utility trailers

3,000 pounds gross vehicle weight receive permanent registration. The registration sticker issued is displayed on the tongue of the vehicle.

Weighted Trailers

For trailers registered at over 3,000 pounds gross vehicle weight, that are not towed as a tractor-semi trailer combination. Registration is based on gross weight.

Expiration: February - plate must display year validation sticker and gross weight sticker.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
