I used to rebuild and restore trailers, mostly cattle and horse trailers. Doctors, lawyers, everyone would take their plates off when they dropped them off because the plates were always for some other trailer, most of them could have just registered as farm plates for $7 year and never needed inspection. People are funny.

If you claim it is home made and it isnít the task force guy will catch it and more then lilley not let you leave with it. Call the local guy and tell him the story. Have proof and he will help you get what you need. The extra money you pay on insurance policy is where the auto task force gets their budget.

As long as it isn't hot,which I know it's not.Grind the vin# off,put a little of that paint you talked about on it,and tell them you built it..Register it as homemade.

Probably shouldnít get in the middle then, since you clearly donít know the story.

Wasnít about a knife, it was about **** poor communication and having a bunch of useless excuses.

Which continued today when I called him.

And apparently, from the pmís that Iíve received .... Iím not the only one.

Glad you had better luck.

Why should he even call him? Why would things be different.

I believe you can only register it with the county you live in. And it took six tries to get a trailer titled here in Montgomery county for a trailer my son bought off here from an estate sale. It was a nightmare.

I was in the Fayette Co court house trying to register a trailer last week. They asked if I lived there, and I said no but I have land here. Asked for my address and when I told them I didn't have one they immediately made me go to the 911 office to get set up with an address before I could register the trailer. Just FYI...

Beware of anyone selling a vehicle/trailer/atv anything without a title. I see ads all the time saying "no title but it's easy to get one with a bill of sale." Most times that's no longer the case, and if it's so easy, get the title and then sell it. Depending on the situation it may not be a deal killer but that's up to the buyers judgment.

If you blatantly do it they can bust you pretty hard. The key word in the pic above is itís used primarily for farm work.

Years ago my Dad and a buddy were hauling a cook shack too the deer lease on our 20í gooseneck. DPS did not buy it was a feed room/ bunkhouse for some lease pastures

Iím probably gonna shoot myself in the foot but I haul my ranger on our low boy with farm tags but I donít have hunting gear hanging all over it and it honestly looks more like a farm rig then a jacked up play buggy

My ATV trailer is registered to land in east texas using my home address. Farm tags under timber and wildlife exemption

I also have a buddy with farm tags on a boat trailer.

In my experience, the only rule on trailer tags regardless of what the website says is...........each county is different. We have trailers with registrations in 4 difference counties

Not a trailer but could apply. I had a silverado that wouldn't pass inspection due to check engine light (catalytic converters iirc), and with the new one sticker thing, couldn't renew the registration. This truck was past the point I was going to fix anything on it that wasn't necessary, so just kept driving it. Took over a year to get pulled over & ticketed. Fine ended up only being $130. Paid it and kept driving....

DPS may ask you questions about having manufacturing decals and pinstripes on your homemade farm tagged trailer

Like others have said itís the primarily used for farm. You can haul your ranger down the road legally on a farm trailer. It helps if there is some hay stuck in the boards of the trailer and not roofing shingles. Most rural officers donít care. I have found large city and DPS officers usually have no idea about these exemptions for LPs on trailers. A farm trailer doesnít even have to have plates or be registered. As shown in the photo above.

This actually works, had one stolen off the trailer best I can figure in Hillje when I was buying jerky. VSO was able to pull up registration though. They also took one of the truck tags.
