I agree with you, registering a trailer as homemade is EZPZ in Mass. I’ve done it twice: once for a 24’ sailboat, and once for 30’ sailboat. Besides the easy registering of trailers, extra bonus in Mass is that you don’t have to register a sailboat unless it has a motor.Actually, I live in MA and registering a homemade trailer is not nearly as hard as L&VW makes it out to be. If it was registered previously in NY, it should be even easier.
Well, I passed the inspection and received the VIN so I can now register the trailer. Seems dumb that they'd be okay with weak carabiner clips rather than the chain hooks. I removed the carabiner clips and will only use the open chain hooks. I'm quite sure it's safer.Oh no. I live in MA and haven't registered the 80's trailer I got in NY. Guess I am in for a ride!
