    How come some boat trailers have tags and some don't. Is it b/c of the lenght, weight? Just wondering b/c I see them both ways and I don't have one, Just making sure I'm legal.

    If the weight of the trailer and load combined is less than 2000 pounds than a tag is not required. Over 2000 pounds and you are required to tag the trailer.

    I have pulled boats out of state many times and never been pulled over either.

    Some lenders also require you to tag no manner of weight so they will have a title on the trl.

    Or you can keep ignoring that letter every three months when it comes from the bank. :tounge_out:. I have ignored it for 2 years now. One more year and I am home free :big_smile:.

    In kansas tags are not required if the trailer is under 2k lbs or 22ft I do believe. When you go out of state you fall under your state requirments not the state you are traveling to or through.
