Registering a Trailer?

Registering a trailer in Maine is simple.

Is your trailer:

All we need is a copy of the registration. Send this along with a check for the number of years you wish to register it (no sales tax due).

EXAMPLE: 5 year registration is $99.00 – send check for $99.00 made out to Maine Trailer Registrations plus a copy of the registration.

All we need is a copy of the front page of the title sent to us along with a check for the number of years you wish to register the trailer (no sales tax due)
If you have both registration and title in your name, we prefer you send only a copy of the registration.
The trailer will have to be titled in Maine – we need the original title signed over to you, a Power of Attorney form (available in MS Word format or pdf format) filled out completely and a check for the registration fee and the title fee (sales tax might be due – see FAQ section)

EXAMPLE: 5 year registration is $99.00 plus title fee is $50.00 – send check for $149.00 ($99.00 plus $50.00) made out to Maine Trailer Registrations plus the two (2) required documents.

Your executed Power of Attorney form will need to be notarized.

We need a copy of the Bill of Sale (if needed, available to download in MS Word format or pdf format) plus a copy of the title or some document showing the trailer weight and a check for the number of years you wish to register the trailer. Maine will not title that trailer due to its weight (sales tax might be due – see FAQ section)
All we need is a copy of the Bill of Sale (if needed, available to download in MS Word format or pdf format) with a check for the number of years you wish to register the trailer (sales tax might be due – see FAQ section)

Please note: The Bill of Sale must be very neat and include the date, full name and address of the seller, full name and address of the buyer, year, make, serial number, weight, GVW, cost and color of the trailer and must include seller’s signature.

If the trailer has been previously registered, we need only a copy of that registration and a check for the number of years you wish to register the trailer (no sales tax due)

If the trailer has not been previously registered, we need a typed formal statement from you that has the following in it:

    • Date built
    • Dimensions: length, width and height
    • Weight
    • GVW (trailer weight plus load it can carry)
    • Type of trailer (utility, landscape, boat, etc.)
    • VIN number (Use the word ‘Homemade’ for VIN, if VIN not available)
    • See our Homemade Trailer Application
Please note:

      • Sorry but we CANNOT register live-in or camper trailers. Basically anything that has sleeping quarters.

Trailer Registrations

It’s very simple – the cost to register is very low compared to most states and, often, no sales taxes are due.

For instance a 5 year tag and registration is $99 (only $60 if the trailer is 2000lbs GVW or less). If a new title is required, it’s an additional $50.

There are more trailers registered in Maine than any other state (except California – and that requires it’s own explanation) and that’s been true for over 30 years. Let us help you register and save!
