Default Re: Pennsylvania boat trailer inspection

When I had a trailer boat in PA, the inspection station told me that unless the trailer weighed over 3000 lbs or had electric brakes, it didn't need inspected, so it wasn't.
That is correct unless something changed this year I have not heard about. The trailer must weight more that 3Klbs to require inspection. Gotta be one big friggin boat to have a trailer weighing that much. Most trailers for 29ft boats only weight about half that. Where did this ticketing event occur????

Tight lines, Bob
I still think the best thing to do would be to check with the state DMV. Better safe than sorry.

Get it in writing in case someone tries to give you an undeserved ticket.
