    But first a little religious humor --

    Trump goes fishing on a lake with Don Jr. --

    "Don -- you want a nice cold beer" ?

    "Yea dad -- I'll row us in" --

    "Don't bother - sit - I'll get it" --

    He gets up steps out on the water & walks to the shore & comes back with 2 beers --

    The next day the fake media reports --

    "TRUMP CANT SWIM --- IMPEACH HIM" !

    Pheeew! Wow Bucketback, not implying that I'm lazy but I'd have bought another trailer.

    I've been shoring up boats since I could walk, although I was helping Dad then. I don't have paperwork for the trailer, so I need to weigh it before the SoS will title it I'm told.

    Plus I can check out the rollers, and touch up the paint where the rust is showing through.

    I also want to pull the rims off, just to make sure the lugs aren't rusted on.

    That would suck on the side of the road with a flat and no way to change the flat.

    I hear you, I just went through that rusted/seized lug nut thing on my car trailer. I needed to put new tires on it. I had to use "Loosey-Goosey" penetrant and a 4 way lug wrench with a 4 ft. cheater bar to bust them loose. No fun, doing that in a ditch on the side of a busy road would blow big time.

    I wondered why you had to have it weighed. Yeah no paper work hit the scales.

    They may title it as "assembled" trailer since no paper work?

    Nice job BucketBack!

    But think about it, why does the State require registration on any non-motorized vehicle like a trailer? Its a Giant Crock of Shit in my opinion just to act as a revenue stream and screw the folks...

    It's an expensive permanent plate. Which is why the seller took his, with the paperwork.

    Yes, and hopefully you have a identifyable serial number? My camper has out of state title, (which I have not seen since the bog move), and the serial number is on the tounge.
    Damnit, now I really need to go get that fireproof document safe, and get my titles in order.
    Thanks for the slap in the face.
    THe ten or so titles that are running around loose, would cost way more than a nice document safe.
