    You need a new plate. I just built a new trailer. I believe that the reg. fee is only $75 if the trailer weighs less than 2500 lbs. A bit more if its over that. Since there was no information on file about my trailer at the sec. of states, I had to get it weighed and include a bill of sale / attestment of the fact that I actually built it.

    Hope this helps you out. Good luck
