Homemade Trailers

A Homemade Trailer ID number is required when an individual assembles a trailer from either a kit or materials on hand. The builder must supply the following information:
  • Length
  • Receipts for materials purchased
  • Type of trailer
  • Value
  • Weight
  • Width
A DR 2409 Statement of Assembly of Homemade Trailer and Assignment of Trailer Identification Number (PDF) must be completed by the owner in our office. The ID number assigned is affixed to the front part of the metal frame of the trailer. The trailer ID fee is $3.50. Upon completion of the DR 2409, title and plates for the trailer may be issued.

Once the trailer is ready to be registered, a DR 2704 Certified VIN Inspection is required, completed by a certified officer verifying that a VIN number is not present. The officer will also fill out a DR 2697 Certificate of Equipment Compliance (PDF) verifying that the trailer is road-worthy.
