Homemade boat trailer

Postby quackadikt » Tue Dec 17, 2013 10:16 am

Anyone here had to register a "homemade" trailer in NM? What does it entail? Looks like I'm going to Texas to buy a boat this weekend and the trailer is registered as a homemade in TX.

So do you have to have an actual ticket showing the weight, or can you just tell them how much it weighs?

pretty sure you have to have a certificate or printout something...i bought a homemade teardrop, that i have yet to register...and the dude i bought it from said i could go to a truck stop or possibly a scrap yard, have it weighed, and they'd give me a printout to show the DMV...so, while i know this is probably no actual help, hopefully it provides some assistance

Good enough. I was just hoping that I wouldn't have to pull the boat off of the trailer to get an actual weight.

Just take it to dmv.make sure it has tail lights.dmv will inspect it and register it . They'll issue a temp tag for you to transport it for inspection.also put your initials or identifying mark somewhere in case it gets stolen it can be entered into ncic.serves as a vin basically

I imagine this thing will have an actual serial # on it somewhere. It was a trailer that the guy boat without a title in Texas. He just had it registered as a homemade since there was no way to find a title.

We'll if it has a serial number they will find it .that would mean its not homemade .just file for new title and tell your the new owner.tell them the owner had lost the title. Have you ran it to make sure it's not stolen ?

Not stolen. Talked to MVD today and got everything straight I think. Doesn't sound too hard, other than the PIA taking the boat off the trailer to get a weight ticket for it.

I had to register a home made trailer in Socorro. I just took it to the dump to get it weighed (cost $5).
