    Don't know about NY but in TN you just take the bill of sale with the VIN# to the DMV to get a plate and they give you what you need.

    EASY-PEASY! Just go somewhere and get a weigh slip (empty trailer) Go to the DMV and fill out the registration paper as homemade. You can decide on how much you want to register it to carry. The higher the weight, the more it will cost you. I have never been checked for weight on my "home made" or any other trailer.
    If you decide not to do that - let me know where this trailer is please.

    I'm in the process of doing the same thing right now... But in Michigan.

    Your local truck stop, junkyard, or feed mill will have a certified scale and be able to print you out a weigh slip.
    Take the weight slip and the bill of sale to your dmv.
    Pay the nice lady at the counter.
    Get your plate and registration.



    It really is that easy... And if not, then it ought to be!

    Some states require a DOT inspection for trailers; lights, brakes, etc. Typically this is only for trailers above a certain capacity.

    Is this a home made trailer? You say it has a vin, that leads me to believe it is factory built. If it is factory built, why does it not have a title? I can understand a home built trailer not having a title, but a factory built one with out a title raises red flags to me. Is it stolen or have a lien on it. If you have not purchased it yet, take the vin to you DMV to check it out first.

    Well, it "could be" home made. If it were me, I would not hesitate to register it as home made. Dump the VIN ID plate and move on.

    Other way - you know the fella that lost the registration? He can get a replacement if he has the VIN and it was registered to him.

    It's much easier for the current owner to get a replacement title than for you to get a replacement. Either the current owner is seriously lazy or there's something fishy.

    You could lose the trailer if it were discovered. You could be charged with receiving stolen property. If he has a loan on it you could be charged with party to the transfer of encumbered property. If you took the VIN plate off of it, hiding stolen property and a number of crimes for tampering with a VIN.
    If the owner found you before the cops you may also need some new teeth.

    I wouldn't think you would get prison time, maybe just a couple months in jail. What do I know I'm just a retired cop?

    Check the VIN with DOT.
