Hey folks, I was wondering if small trailers need to be registered in colorado? In utah, single axle trailers weighing less than 750lbs do not need to be, but I was wondering about neighboring states. thanks a lot

I'm kinda hoping that just driving through will be ok. seems like if you're legal in the state you live in you oughta be ok?

Most likely you'll be OK, it's also illegal to drive in CO without a front plate but AZ does not actually give you a front plate - the Zoners don't seem to get pulled over for it in CO.

can get by

if the state where you are from doesn't req the trailer to be licensed, just say that and you are fine. but if you have co plates and a unlicensed trailer, it is just a reason for them to pull you over

Cops wont mess with you if you have outa state plates for their states laws. (when they differ like this)

A very common one is window tint.
They cant really pull you over for tint thats illegal in their state if your registered in another, where it is legal.

(this does not apply to crap like lighting though usually, just an fyi)

Who cares if you can talk your way out of the trailer ticket, while he's writing you up for something else that he wouldn't have known about if he hadn't had a reason to stop you in the first place.

If you drive it much in CO, I'd consider registering it anyway to avoid the hassle.

i haven't had the front plate on my truck for 3 or 4 years because it always fell off or would be dangling by one screw when i got to my destination. it resides under my passenger seat. no tix for me yet. probably because there are so many other states that don't have front plates.

trailers are a different story. lights, tags, etc., are an excuse to get pulled over in hopes of finding something else.....
