If your loaded trailer weighs less than 1,800 pounds, you do not have to title and register it or get a trip permit to pull it over public roads.
However, you may wish to obtain a title for your trailer. If the trailer is stolen, most law enforcement agencies and insurance companies will want to see proof of ownership.
All trailers used on the road must be equipped to meet safety standards. See the ODOT Vehicle Equipment and Safety Standards
page for more information.
