. I put one of those Triangle warning signs on the rear of our camper because it appeared to me it is a requirement in Canada and I do not want the hassle should we go up there.
That triangle warning sign is a first for me. Never heard of that rule up here.

In South Carolina you can tow a unregistered trailer, just don't try to take it out of state.

Check out my Scamp restoration video on Youtube, & my Ham Radio Blog. Or take the 50 cent tour...

I think they just want you to carry them in your trunk in case you have to pull of to the side of the road to change a tire, or something. I got a set from Harbor Freight in a plastic carrying case.

get a plate and tag.

Don't tow thru California. In an odd happening this evening, I was pulled over for expired tags on my Jeep. They "appear" to have expired in February, but they are actually good until the 24th, and I have paid.. just waiting for the tags in the mail.

I showed the CHP my paperwork and he apologized and sent me on my way. He had every right to check tho.

Normally they won't pull you over for a LONG time after the month of expiration. I can just imagine what they would do if you had NO plate.. let alone valid tags.

Good Morning
I agree with Chester, There is no requirement for reflective triangles on your trailer unless you are operating a piece of farm equipment which must travel occasionally along public highways. Any agricultural equipment or construction equipment which is not registered must display a "Slow Moving Vehicle Sign" when off of private property. The beauty of registering your trailer in Alberta, is that once registered, the plate is perpetual until it changes ownership. There are no annual renewal fees.
When you retire, everyday becomes Saturday!
