There was an article a month or so on Delaware Online about this.  It stated police would be looking specifically for Delaware vehicles (residents) towing trailers with out of state registration.  It sounded like the law was always in place, but will now be enforced.

Sounds like profiling to me.  I wonder if they will step up efforts to pull over people with expired trailer tags.  I bet thats more prevelant than a mine tag.

The guys using Maine tags have been breaking the law for years. Same thing is going on in Maryland. They've been advised numerous times on several forums that the law specifically refers to trailers used in interstate commerce, but they choose to break the law and hope they don't get caught.

You make me sound like such a murderer.

I did it to save a few bucks and have since found it was illegal and in the process of being changed.

Not until recent did I see it on a forum.

Can you grant me a pardon or am I still guilty!

I'll ask one question, Have you ever gone over the speed limit?Doesn't that constitute breaking the law as you put it?
Are though holier than most?

its reverse discrimination. if you're a PA or MD resident titleing your trailer in DE to avoid taxes they say nothing.

In MD, alot.  First off, you dont need to get the trailer inspected.  Then Maine tags are $99/5 years.  Md tags are $51/year

Whoever you talked to doesn't know what they are talking about. You can't register a TRAILER in Delaware in your name if your primary residence out of state.

$51 gets you 2 years in MD.  So Maine is a better deal, but not by much, on a yearly basis.

Isn't the $99/5 years for trailers with brakes?  I thought I read somewhere that trailers without brakes was cheaper, maybe $60?

Yes, you are correct about $51 for 2 yrs in MD

I have 1 trailer (enclosed) with the tags and it was $99/5yrs.

2 years
up to 3000 = $ 51.00
3001 and up to 5000 = $102.00
5001 to 10000 = $ 160

I pay $ 60/5 years in Maine for my small utility trailer.

I think more guys register in Maine because of title issues not saving money.

Ed,I think you're wrong,I believe you can register in De if you have a second home there,I had heard also 1 vehicle,but it has to be primarily used there.Living in Pa as I did most of my life a lot of people used to use De addresses because the Ins was half.Technically that voids the ins due to fraud and I know that was stopped many yrs ago by police looking for the tags,but I do believe the second home thing is legit
