So I just bought an HF trailer. Im moving back to IL in one month and want to register it there instead of MI. Will I run into issues with towing it back w/o current registration(only bought it 2 days ago)?

It seems that MI has a permanent, nonexpiring plate/registration. So i may as well register it here.

Here in Utah, if it is below a certain size (and a HF trailer would be), registration is optional.

Tags are issued by the state/municipality you live in, unless they really don't have that option.

I'm kinda thinking of something along the lines of Gimp/Photoshop & cardstock paper...but I don't think I'd want to bring that to Kinko's to print out
Found a couple of examples but I dunno if they're valid for trailers:
VT temp plate: http://www.plateshack.com/y2k/Vermont2/vt2014temp.jpg
NH: http://www.angelfire.com/ma4/pl8z/nhtemp.jpg

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

What state plates are on the car? Get a plate to match if it is required.

It was 30 for a temp(not an option shown online) or 75 for permanent. I just got the permanent one as I doubt anyone in the next couple of years is going to care about the car w/IL plates and trailer w/MI plate in Iowa City. lol

Also, there wasnt anything like "in transit" just to get me over the border. Id rather fork over the money for the full registration vs. having a trooper stop me for that very reason.

If you did, then what about all the tractor-trailers with mismatching plates? I don't see how you could get grief.

Even then, as long as nothing is in view (or smell) of the officer, you don't have to consent to a search of your vehicle. Course, if he does see or smell something, you're in trouble.

Can you claim the trailer is owned by someone in WI? (No, NOT me...) WI has no registration for small trailers.

That would have been a nice trick to use. Oh well, drove with the trailer full of apt stuff and another engine/trans from a car i scrapped. With over 1000lbs behind me i managed to get 23mpg going 65-70, and got 27.5mpg with a fairly empy trailer on the way back.


Sure as hell beats paying for a uhaul and the 12mpg youd get in that thing.

Techincally the car is still owned by my mother(IL), and im a University of Iowa student working at an internship in MI. So if they really want to be that much of a dick and give me a ticket over that, I have a pretty good excuse for the mismatching plates. lol
