I think you can get blank weight slips from the license bureau. Other than truck scales at the pilot, TA, are there scales at copley feed to weigh your rig? Unload your boat, or subtract the boat weight from the gross weight. Or, just fill out the ticket yourself and punch out the appropriate numbers with a paper punch. It is a PITA to get our trailers registered in Ohio. I used to work the scale house at copley sand and gravel on summit rd but i think that is long gone. Ppl would come in all the time to get their trailer weighed. As a last resort you could e-mail mastercraft with your trailer vin and ask what the weight of the trailer is supposed to be. Then you will have it in writing from the manufacturer.

I thought the trailer title had the weight on it ...... I have registered a few boats in Ohio and never needed to get it weighed, since the title or some other document on delivery had that on it .... Do you have your trailer title ? Or like someone else said maybe the sales slip had the weight?

Not all states require a title for the trailer. Usually they come with a manufacturers certificate of origin. My trailer did not have one so I improvised. When I sold the boat I sent the trailer registration with it so there was a weight document that could be referenced.

The boat was originally titled in New Hampshire and they have the weight of the boat and trailer at 4100 pounds. Ohio just wants the trailer weight. I have contacted Mastercraft and looked thru the site and cannot find a document with the 2008 specs. Guess I will take it to a scale and see how that works.

Thanks for responding.

John

Thanks for the tips, I didnt think about Copley feed or Pilot. I didn't want to take it to the sand and gravel places because they are so muddy. I had an email from Mastercraft but they could not send me a pdf that the title bureau would accept. I'll try Copley Feed ot Pilot.

Thanks again

John

John, if you have not done anything yet, get hold of the fellas at Boat House Marine (330-325-1822) they are the Mastercraft dealer in our area. Speak with Chris or James. Explain your situation, ask them what they do if there is no trailer documentation.

I had this problem when I bought my last boat. I was going to take the boat off the trailer and drive the empty trailer back to the scale and get it weighed. However when I stopped into the local grain company (closest scale) the guy said basically "how much do you think it weighs" and I gave him the best estimate I was able to find online, he signed off on it, told me a few choice words about overbearing gov't officials and sent me on my way.

'worth a try to ask around, might save you some grief. It's a stupid requirement anyway.
