Question Question Question I just today pulled an old boat trailer out of a field, so I wouldn't have to lug my boat in my Uncle's truck. But there's a problem I got the old license plate, but no title. If this helps any, the plate's number is: B82-308 from the 1972 to 73. Is there an easy way to obtain a title for a boat trailer.

I think it's like a canoe or kayak, you need a license but might not need a title. I could be wrong..

I don't think there would be a problem with asking at a license bureau...unless that requires a major trip.

If your trailer fits one of these two rules:
    It weighs less than 3,000 pounds (including its load), or
    It's an agricultural trailer weighing less than 10,000 pounds (including its load)

then it doesn't have to be titled.

Registering your trailer also depends on weight:
    Under 3,000 pounds―Requires a one-time registration decal that fits on the tongue of the trailer. It costs $55 for the permanent registration, plus additional processing and sales tax fees.
    Trailers larger than 3,000 pounds require plates and must be renewed annually. Fees are based on weight.

Contact your deputy registrar for help in determining exact fees.


Also, the registration sticker (as opposed to the plates) could cause problems outside of Minnesota if you intend to use it across state lines. The sticker is legal in all 50 states, but that doesn't mean troopers in other states know that.
