Gross Vehicle Weight of your trailer

Hi all,

I'm getting documents pulled together to import my new to me 1996 PS 205 from TN back to Ontario.

Tennessee does not have titles for trailers and only registration cards for boats. The VIN plaque on the trailer (single axel MasterCraft trailer in pic below) is faded and the VIN and info cannot be read.

Apparently in order to license the trailer in Ontario I will need to know the "Gross Vehicle Weight of the trailer". This is one of the items that is normally listed on the sticker.

Anyone have a similar trailer, similar age who can tell the GVW or better yet a picture of the sticker showing all the details (except your VIN of course).

Thanks
Nidus72

I beleive gvw is the combined weight of the trailer and it's maximum load, ie. the boat also. My boat trailer is not at home right now but my cargo trailer is and that is how it is listed.

Hi Guys,

I had the same problem a few years ago. I took the serial number off the trailer that was etched into the steel and sent the info to Mastercraft. They in turn sent me a new sticker to place on the trailer with all the information needed to get it titled. They were very easy to work with. Hope this helps!
Ron

Hello!

In order to get my registration in Province of Quebec (last year) The registration office sent me to a public scale with the trailer..They did not care about the VIN PLAQUE. Only the canadian tire guy will check this plaque for riv.

Also, make sure that the trailer serial number is exactly the same as the serial number that get written on the bill of sale. We misstyped a digit on the bill of sale and it created me problems at canadian tire inspection.

Thanks for the info,

Where on the trailer is the VIN number (other than the plaque?). I assume it's also stamped somewhere? The sticker is not legible and as I mentioned the boat is in TN and they don't title trailers so the guy does not have a piece of paper with the VIN number?

Thanks

If the previous owner has/had insurance on the boat and trailer, the insurance company should have requested the boat HIN and the trailer VIN and the engine serial number when it was insured. The po and the insurance company should have it in their paperwork and possibly with any previous loan paperwork..

HI,

No this is a boat I'm buying. I'm trying to determine the location of the VIN on the trailer so I can make sure it's on the notarized bill of sale so I can get insurance and register it back up here in Ontario.

Thanks

I found a post elsewhere that said the VIN is also stamped on the cross member tube right behind the passenger side wheel.

Any idea if this is true?
