home made trailer, DMV needs

We have a trailer that we just built. It is a 5x10 little trailer that'll haul my four wheeler, snow mobile, or what ever else i need to tow with my jeep.

What do i need in New York to get a title and register this trailer to make it road legal?

thanks for the help... i'll get some pics the next time i bring it out of the shop...

I dont know what they would require, but i'm sure it needs working lights, fenders, and safety chains.

Call your DMV and ask what they need. Locally trailers that weigh under 1k unladen don't need to be registered. If you do register it you'll need an OAN (owner applied number) inscribed on it in place of a VIN.

I know you need to get it weighed, when i lost the papers for our boat trailer we had to get it weighed with and without the boat and then the DMV had some paper work to fill out, last thing you need to do is get it inspected. And a trailer that small only needs one safety chain (i broke one on my 4x8 and still passed inspection).

You do need to register any trailer in NYS.
Here is what you need.
