Any trailer with a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) over 3000 Lbs. Needs inspection. Most people don't. It's something not usually enforced
I dont have my trailer registered or inspected yet because I didnt get the title from previous owners bank before I shrink wrapped it. I went to DMV to register it and they said IhIhad to bring the trailer to verify vin. I guess it will be something I do next month.

I would talk to some one else about that. Never heard of such a thing. When i bought my trailer (MD) i didn't have to take it anywhere

I think it was last year. It used to be $36.00. What changed it was the County/locl gov gets an additional $5.00
Might not be the same for you,(yet).

I'm right down the road from you in Avondale PA and keep my boat in a slip or on a trailer at our place in Long Neck, DE.

Long story short, my trailer is unregistered at the moment (NBD b/c it isn't moving for the foreseeable future). BUT, I ran the trailer through the DE inspection lane last fall in an effort to title the trailer in DE and get a plate on it. Passed the inspection, waited in line for an hour and half, and was turned away at the desk because I didn't have a Delaware driver's license. I brought the title to our place in Long Neck (it's a trailer) and the lot lease with my name on it but they told me that wasn't enough to prove residency. I was told that I needed to bring someone with a DE driver's license so that they could add his or her name to the title. Haven't gone back since.

I wanted to title/register the trailer in DE so that I could get a multi-year plate but I think I'll do some reading and just get the damn thing registered in PA.

As an aside, I walk in to Eastern Marine every year or every three years and register the boat. No questions asked.

Eastern marine is where I registered the boat for 3 years. They told me I needed to register the trailer in PA, which it sounds like you found out as well.

The bohimia is just so much easier to get to from where we are vs going to de beaches if just cruising, tubing, crabbing, etc...with the family vs going down to DE beaches. I did see there are plenty of storage places down there where you can keep the boat on a trailer for cheap! Like $50/mo cheap which is a lot less than the extra gas you pay trailering it back and forth over a month.

My family likes to camp so we are already looking to block some weekends at cape henelopen.

if you keep your boat at a marina in md you will need to register it there. The trailer is considered a motor vehicle and needs to be registered at a residence, be it your primary home or a beach house. I live in NJ with a beach house in Delaware so am able to register both there. But before we bought the beach house we registered the boat in Delaware and trailer in no.

Back to the md marina the state does check.

If you register the trailer in DE you will have to run the trailer through the inspection lanes every year or two depending on what option you buy sticker wise. If it were me I would do Maine trailer tag, DE boat registration. For boat registration, it is your main port and has zero to do with your trailer tag. With your above percentages you could argue DE is your main port.

If it was a big boat or yacht you could just set up a Delaware LLC and Document the boat.
That's how the big boy's avoid state sales tax. Of coarse were talking thousands of dollars in sales tax.
I know, not practical for smaller boats but that's how the rich scam the system.

Gotta keep raising those govt salaries and benefits, because you know they are so undercompensated compared to the private sector.

What really kills me though is when they all flee the high tax states and then resume voting for the same policies.
