Homemade & Kit Trailers

Applying for a trailer identification number for a homemade or kit trailer will require a Certified VIN Inspection by the State Highway Patrol in addition to providing the following documents and information as described below:

  • Weight
  • Value
  • Type of trailer
  • Receipts (for the kit or if parts or supplies were purchased to build the trailer)
