    i bought an 18ft skid steer trailer a couple months back for $350. everything on it was custom made except for the hitch and axels. it was a great deal but it didnt come with a registration. i was told i need to get it weighed and take it to the secretary of states, is this all i need to do? and where would i get it weighed, i was planning on a truck weigh station...

    Every state is differnt, but here in PA you would need pics of all 4 sides, material list of what was used to build it, and have it inspected by a trailer inspection station,get the empty weight, they need that to establish the gross weight when loaded......then ya put all that together and send it off to the department of motor vechicles for a title and plates. Hell, I might have even left out a step!..LOL
