    What is the pro's and cons with a commercial plate for your trailer versus a normal plate. How much more is it usually, and do they inspect it? its a 4x6 used for a 48 walker for two days a week. Light use. Do you have to renew it every 6 months.

    It must be something just in your state. In NJ trailer plates are all the same. Even the tractor trailer plates say trailer on the bottum. Nothing about commercial. Trucks.. thats a different story.

    I don't think you can get a commercial plate unless the trailer is over a certain gross weight (big rigs).

    That being said, get a regular plate for your trailer, and COMBINATION plates for your truck.

    If you get commercial plates for the truck, you won't be able to go on the Merrit Parkway (Rte 15) at all.
    You still won't be able to get on the Merrit with the trailer (not allowed).
