Trailer Title/Reg. Trouble Here We Go Again 24 Oct 2020 14:19 #108284

You make an important point about the nature of government. It isn't acceptable to simply throw up our hands when our government fails us whether that failure involves something as minor as a trailer registration issue or as critical as the handling of a pandemic. We are going to be in serious trouble if we come to regard "government" to be some nebulous entity outside of our control. It is what we make it. It is our obligation as citizens to make our government what it needs to be in order to promote and protect the well being of all citizens. When it fails us, it is our obligation to act, not simply assert that that is just the nature of government.

You know we want to blame "The Goverment" for problems like this but face it, this is a people problem, people who don't give a crap about other people's problems and won't go to the trouble to take the time to push a problem up to the right individual who can help or the right individual who can help doesn't give a crap about helping anyone either, it's the people who make a government work or not work, if people don't care about other people then this is what we get.

"We" are the government no matter what political party you support or what party is in power, when people don't do what's right and people don't care about other peoples problems then we get the "Goverment" we deserve.

Trailer Title/Reg. Trouble Here We Go Again 24 Oct 2020 13:16 #108281

I purchased a boat and trailer located in Wisconsin. The seller informed me that his trailer had no title or registration because they are not required in Wisconsin for trailers with a carrying capacity of 3000 lb or less. He was 70 years old, had lived their all his life and never registered a trailer. Information on Wisconsin DMV's website confirmed the sellers claim. When I tried to register the trailer in NY, I was informed by NY DMV that all trailers in Wisconsin required titles and registrations which meant NY DMV would require a Wisconsin title and registration to register the trailer. I showed NY DMV the information on the Wisconsin DMV website and was told that it didn't matter. I contacted Wisconsin DMV. They agreed that their website stated that titles or registrations were not required but explained that the information was not accurate. I noted that I'd purchased a trailer on the basis of their website's information. They told me that wasn't their problem.

I contacted sellers of trailers in Wisconsin and they confirmed that they sold trailers of the type I'd purchased without registrations or titles. I tried calling Wisconsin DMV several more times hoping I'd get someone who knew that the trailers were being sold without titles or registrations. I got no where. It was a frustrating problem. Without the generous help provided by Rick G, I don't know how I could have solved it.

John you never told us? Are you going to do a full restoration on the Gator or you going to leave it all original?
