Before we picked up our trailer, I checked with DMV in town and was told we would have no problem traveling without plates if we had the proper paperwork from ETI. When we went down to actually register the trailer, we picked a DMV in a small town near here (Hollister). After a short wait, they sent someone out with us to check the VIN and a few other items, had us pay the sales tax on the bottom line cost (converted), and off we went, plates in hand. We actually spent more time talking to the DMV guy about the trailer and how it was made than the registration itself.

Have you checked with Bama DMV? Many states will pre-register a brand new trailer (ETI sends all the needed paperwork) so you may be able to take your plate with you when you pick up. If you pick up in Sumas, WA (US delivery site) ETI will install the plate for you.

Charlie,

Thanks for the suggestion, but the Alabama DMV doesn't issue Tags without a law enforcement officer examining the vehicle.

I think that's been done by some, not sure. But knowing those border folks it might be a lot simpler to simply go and get a Washington state temporary permit. If they have some sort of permit # to put into the system they're probably happier and the crossing might be quicker. The permits are pretty inexpensive.

Yes, when contemplating the same scenario several years ago, I obtained a Washington travel permit, I believe from Bellingham, WA. Did everything by mail.

When ETI sent me all the right paperwork... I went to my nearest DMV for plates, but the dear people behind the counter there refused to register the trailer without seeing it first. So I left. Next day I took the same paperwork to a different DMV some 50 miles away, because that's where Dave told me he got his plates. The good folks there knew their beans and gave me my plates, which the following week, I attached to my trailer in Sumas.

True baloney. In 2008 I went to Eureka, CA from Sacramento to see one. (Which was the closest to Sacramento at that time,) and it was currently licensed.

Or, if you don't get the right answer just keep asking at other places until you get the right answer. The variation between government offices supposedly operating by the same rule book is amazing.
