Tips


Laws vary from state to state. Contact your local motor vehicle department for details. In most states a trailer needs to be registered. A "WorkSport Certificate of Origin" and sales receipt will need to be provided for registration.
 
You may want to consult your Home Depot Associate about what type of trailer hitch and wiring is required to safely haul your trailer.
