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.

Now anybody knows how to get the trailer on the road back to home?

Watch Smokey and the bandit, grow some balls and get that pig on the road!

"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"

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!!!

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.

Let you insurance company know and make sure you have proof of insurance - even if it is covered by the vehicle.

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.

Is it applicable to every state?
