I still have the trailer kit Certificate of Origin, so I could still jump through PA's hoops and try to get it registered and titled here at some point.
In that case I'm not entirely sure I see the point of doing it.
While it is no doubt better than riding around with a plate belonging to another trailer, I'm not sure I believe that it's going to prevent somebody from getting a citation if a persistant officer wants to give you one.
I suspect that it's still in violation of not having a valid PA title within the mandated period of time.
Not sure. It's skirting the law, at best.
Other than that, without an actual title it will make it very difficult to sell should one decide to do that. At least to anybody in PA.
While it's probably eaiser, I'm still wondering if the better option isn't to pay the $50 to get the enhanced inspection simply get an actual PA title at the end of it.
Theres nothing Shady with this! I know people who have run with a ME. registration for years. I'm about to renew mine.
All we want to do is use our trailers! I know some are new to this and have never had to mess with PENDOT.
I AM an RV Tech by trade and one of the people who inspects Trailers for safety reasons. And I have had to submit to state inspectors who didn't even know what end they were looking at.
I've been told I have had to have Dead People appear in front of Notary.
Believe me! There Impossible. Look up some of the ridiculous scenarios they have put people through on this board alone. The problem is there not consistent. With some people it goes through easy....and others its an impossible goal.
This is not an attempt to "Sneak Past Something". This is a way of getting things Done.
I have sold 4 trailers with a ME registration and the buyers have opted to KEEP the ME. registration. The main reasons again is that PENDOT is unreasonable, Costly, time consuming and at times Impossible.
I have called the State Police...No Problems, Local Police...No Problems, AAA says all is OK.
If you have any questions on this...Call the number on the first Post.
To quote the Late Great George Carlin....Its No Bull $hit!
Again! If your state makes things easy for you to register a Trailer, God Bless ya. My State does NOT. and I'm sure there are others.
BTW, I and others have done this and it is a solution. Those who have not and want to find out more...Call the number! Guessing about things that may happen is just guessing. Find out!
