How do I register my newly purchased trailer?

How do I register my newly purchased trailer?

You’ll need a signed and completed RMV1 form from your insurance agent, proof of ownership* from the seller, and the applicable fees.

Along with the completed RMV1 application, you must submit one of the following documents:

    A Certificate of Origin (new trailers only), or
    The previous owner's title, if a titled trailer, or
    A bill of sale, if a non-titled trailer

*An old registration or excise bill in the name of the seller may be used as proof of ownership or a Certificate of Title for the trailer may be used.

An acceptable Bill of Sale for a trailer must list the following information:|

    Name and address of buyer,
    Name and address of seller,
    Date of purchase,
    Purchase price, and
    Identification information (VIN, make, model, and year)

If the total gross weight of a trailer - the combined weight of the trailer and its cargo - is 3,000 lbs. or less, no title is required. If the total gross weight of a trailer is 3,001 lbs. or more, a title is required. The gross weight of a trailer is determined by the manufacturer and will appear on the trailer's Certificate of Origin and on the trailer itself.
