I want to register my Kendon trailer finally. Can I just walk into a currency exchange and do that? Do I need anything special other than cash?

DGY should have given you the paperwork necessary to get a title. You need a title to register even a small trailer in IL.

Call DGY and inquire about the paperwork unless you have that with all the 411 on it?

I only used the Kendon twice since I bought it last summer. This year it will get more use so I thought I'd get it legit. I will insure it separately once I get the official title.

Hmm, State Farm told me the trailer is insured as part of the car that's towing it. And when at the house, it's covered as a possession under my homeowners policy.

What's the advantage of separate insurance for the trailer? (The bikes, including track bikes, have liability and comprehensive coverage.)

When done thru car insurance they ONLY replace what the trailer damages. When seperate they will replace the trailer itself PLUS damages caused but it.

For the cheap insurance and some trailers being costly I go seperate.

Chey it depends on the insurance company. When I am towing state farm covers everything. The policy for the trailer only from state farm for me was incase it was stolen. If it was damaged while towing it would fall under my auto policy. I am not sure about other insurance companies and you would want to make sure you are covered but that is how it was explained to me. I think its about $30 a year to insure my trailer.

I am totally new to all this but thinking about getting a little one bike open trailer. So if you buy one 2nd hand you have to 1) write up a bill of sale and have the currency title it? 2)Then get plates? and pay a renewal every year for them? What are renewal prices? Sorry for all the questions, my dumb ass thought for small 150lbs trailers that you just took the plate off your car and put it on the trailer while using it. No shit, I am that naive.

To be sure that you'll have no problems registering it, buy one that already has a title. With a trailer that doesn't currently have a title, you have to go through some extra hassles to get it titled.

In Illinois, trailers must be titled, registered and have current plates to be legal on public roads. For trailers with a load capacity of up to 3000 lbs, It's like $15 or $18/yr for the plates. Larger capacity trailers pay more.

No Bill of Sale is necessary if you have the vehicle title for the trailer. Just bring the title, properly signed over to you. Make sure it's filled out on the proper places, or you will have to go back to the seller and have them correct it. READ the title carefully before you leave the seller and make sure it's filled out properly.

BTW: you can go to a IL Secretary of State Motor Vehicle office and not pay any processing fees to the middlemen, just the state fees. Go mid-day on Tuesday or Wednesday when the crowds are the smallest, and you will probably be out of there in 1/2 hour give or take, if all your paperwork is in order.

the homebuilt trailer registration route is apparently pretty easy to go through in order to obtain title and registration
