Congratulations on your find.
When we picked ours up we drove it across seven states.
The troopers didn't even act if they noticed we had no tags.
We did buy new and I did have the paper tag but it was pouring
down rain when we picked it up and I never installed it. Wife was
kind of antsy but I told her the rain would destroy it anyway. And
if we were stopped I had the tag.
When I tagged it in Oklahoma I had the option of tagging it or not.
If I didn't register it I wouldn't get a tag and didn't have to pay the tax.
But to get it registered I had to pay the tax and get a tag.
I spent the $600 dollars so if/when I sell or trade it, there won't be that
hassle about the paper work for a new owner. So I have a tag for the trailer.
I don't have tags for my utility trailers.
If it were me, I would just hook up and head for home.
