    lie go get the trailer weight empty of course. Then go to dmv tell them you built it and give them weight ticket your good. In ohio you can do that :)

    Who's name is the trailer registered to? In NY, you'd have to get a duplicate registration, then if its registered in your partners' name, he'd need to sign it over to you. You'd have to prove partnership, or show it as a gift or you'd be paying sales tax on it before you could register it in your name.
    Dont know how PA handles things, I know its different than NY on cars and motorcycles.

    To get the duplicate registration is just a signature on some paperwork at the DMV and a couple bucks, they print it out on site and hand it to you. Hopefully it was registered in the business name, so you can sign for it. ????
