Does a small boat trailer need license plates?

No. I've got 2. Bought 1 in 1991, the other in 2012, never had a plate on either one. Both boats are motorized and registered. I had 2 others in the past 30 years, that I've sold. Never had plates on those.

Also have a new 6X12 utility trailer bought new from Fleet Farm last summer, and a snowmobile trailer my dad bought new in 1989. No plates on those either.

I believe anything under 3,000# doesn't need a plate.

This all good to know.  I have had the boat and trailer for over 10 yrs and never put plates on it.
