Nomanco Trailers

I just picked this up and have never heard of it before. Anyone know if it is a good trailer? I needed a trailer with a title so I could get it registered. In TN they do not require a tag on a trailer but in other local states they do.The only thing I didn't like about the trailer is it's going to be a bitch to back because you can't see it behind the truck but it's light enough to disconnect and move around by hand. I almost purchased a new 4x8 from Tractor Supply but they just looked too low budget.

I just took possession of a single rail trailer myself. In WV you need a title and this trailer didn't come with anything. No "bill of sale", no "certificate of origin",
nothing. No VIN on trailer. WTF. I filled out all the paper work and got a title for it "Assembled Trailer" (home built form a kit)...... Worked for me.

Nice... I think I'm going to mount my lights up on the fenders like yours. I have no idea why the plate mount on mine is under the left light (2 inches from the ground). I'm going to fab a bracket for that and mount it on the fender.

I'm in TN and have never had an issue with my non-plated trailer in other states though I'm pretty sure I've only been to NC, SC, FL, GA, AL, KY and maybe a couple more close.

For backing pick up a couple fiberglass marking rods, paint the top couple inches a bright color and stick them on the back corners. Something like http://www.amazon.com/Little-DM80048.../dp/B00A8HC224 you should be able to find at a lowes/hd/ww

I'm not sure what your concern is regarding a plate for the trailer. I've seen TN plated vehicles in Canada pulling trailers with no plate, and they've crossed an international border. Ontario has lifetime trailer plates that require no annual validation sticker, and I've never hesitated on taking mine where they are required.

There has to be some sort of reciprocity between jurisdictions in place for non-conforming vehicles from another state/province. There are numerous things that would fall into that trap, particularly with vintage vehicles.

Has anybody heard of an out-of-state vehicle being cited for this type of infraction, when it conforms with the laws where it originates?
