I too am a WI resident, and fiberglass owner. The scamp
should have a title
or certificate of origin. The trailer was manufactured with a VIN
. Plates and registration
are dependant on weight
and total length, not the "rigid wall" structure of the trailer. The mobile home license
plate is intended for just that, a mobile home. I've gone through this with several campers, and numerous discussions with our local motor vehicle carrier inspector. In 15 years I havent put plates on a single one of my campers. I did prior to that with an old "travel trailer"(small heavy stick built), and the MVCI told me I was wasting my money. Same thing applies to enclosed cargo trailers. Under a certain weight
and size, no plates required. It still might be advisable to have plates if you plan to travel outside of WI much. MI state patrol has never bothered me yet.
