Default Re: Pennsylvania boat trailer inspection

OK, when they say a trailer of less than 3000lbs, do they mean the trailer and the boat or just the trailer? Can you say, loophole?
Gross weight means trailer + load.

Either way nobody seems to know about this in eastern PA. Not the DMV, Not the trailer dealers, not the inspection stations, etc. So I don't think it's much of a big deal. I am happy taking my chances since I only tow for about 10 minutes in PA before I cross the border to another state. Have no interest in sweetwater and I get the feeling that if they are going to target you they will do it as a state launch on a weekend. My 2008 dual axle with one brake is more than enough for a 3K boat. Atleast in any other state in the US it is
