Hi Tom;
Lucky for me, the emission tests here in IllAnnoy are only required for the residents of the 5 county RTA district!
I once turbocharged an RX7 for a friend and he had to get his mailing address changed in order to keep the car!

Smile Stop and get a weigh.

I picked that up, too. Scamp says:

"Approximate weight 2200-2600#

"The axle is rated at 3500#

"However, the TIRES are 13" and are rated "C" load. "

http://www.trailmastertrailers.com/p...are_safety.pdf

A 13" "C" load tire is rated to carry 1480#. That means 2960# for the trailer. Never mind what the axle rating is.

There is also a load rating number. If the number is 93 or below, your trailer is NOT rated for carrying over 3000#

Now convince a government functionary of that!

When i registered mine, the certificate of origin that came from the manufacturer had the weight of the trailer. Because it was a travel trailer and not intended for hauling, that's the weight they used. The weight cut off here is 1500 lbs and inspections are what ever they can get away with, typically $30-$35. As suggested, get the trailer weighed, get a weight slip and plead for mercy. Use the money you save for paying campground fees. Good luck, Raz

Hi Floyd, I didn't realize the emissions inspection was a local tax. I remember discussing the high cost of our trailer plates with you at the LBL Rally. Your's were far less. Now I'm wondering if our license plate prices are based on the county we live in? I'm going to check into that soon. Looking forward to seeing you in FL. in Feb.!

Carl, apologies to you. I hi-jacked this thread of your's about extension cords when I asked about the PA Inspection. I didn't mean to do that, but I find it fascinating to read about all the creative ways our officials have come up with to separate us from our money. It sounds like you got the answer you needed about the outdoor cords before that happened. Good luck!

Tom

One last comment on Pa inspection. When having your new trailer titled in Pa have the notary list it as 3000lb or less. That means no inspection. This is what our guy did for us. Makes life a little easier. Also something I did not know no sales tax on the option on the new trailer.

Hummm may be as simple as asking the trailer manufacture to supply a letter/fax stating the actual load rating of the trailer.
