Hi, <BR> <BR>Just bought a boat in boston, MA. It comes with a trailer, but the problem i have is that it's not registered, I'm a out of state resident and the Massachusetts DMV doesn't issue temporary plates. The trailer obviously has a serial number. <BR> <BR>Now anybody knows how to get the trailer on the road back to home? <BR> <BR>thanks

Watch Smokey and the bandit, grow some balls and get that pig on the road! <BR> <BR>"East bound and down loaded up and trackin' we gun do what they say cant be done. We got a long way to go and a short time to get watch out smokey watch ol bandit run" <BR> <BR>Seriously though they dont fo trip permits? You can get it licensed in your state if you have the docs then just go pick it up.

I live in canada, and before getting any kind of registration or licence, they will ask for customs clearance... So it need to be seen by customs first, and that I can't do... Agrhhh!!!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0>

Check and see if the next state on your route does issue temps if so get one.

There is a 10-day exemption with a bill of sale in the US for trailers. Temp tags are not issued in all states. Keep your bill of sale with you and you should be fine. <BR> <BR>Let you insurance company know and make sure you have proof of insurance - even if it is covered by the vehicle. <BR> <BR>Canada has some really weird trailer laws - you may need some extensive retrofits.

10 day exemption?? Your the 2nd person to tell me that, but I find this pretty odd. <BR> <BR>Is it applicable to every state?
