Getting Title for Trailer


The other thing the Travis County tax office made me provide them was the gross weight of the trailer. I looked at the AS brochure for 2005 and found the gross weight. They took my word for it without needing to provide them with anything in writing.

That's a hoot, This satisfies my question why my Texas title has a gross weight of 4500 for my 1991 '34 excella which actually weighs 8400. It's never had an inspection sticker on it and the ID plate on it has a GVWR over 9K. I looked at my last registration renewal and it says GVRW is 5400. It must have been fudged somewhere along the way because I bought it last year. I wonder if I just carry my title with me to show a DPS officer that it will satisfy their inquiry about why it is not inspected. I also think that I pay lower annual fees for a lower weight (54.00 annual).

Yup, lower annual fees.

And I don't think DPS cares about the inspection. I got one two years ago when I got the trailer registered, and since then I've never been asked about it.
