Well, guess what...funny thing, but I'm preparing to take the TTT on a trip next month, after letting it sit for a year and a half, and upon posting the above in this thread, a chill went up my spine. After a quick trip into the garage, I saw that my tags expired 14 months ago. My chilled spine later proved to be a fair warning, because, once again, the wife had once again either mis-filed the proof of registration, or thrown it out again. As well as the automatic renewal notices we get. I know you are thinking " Why don't you keep the records? "; she wanted to control the data, since her first husband hid everything from her. I had no objection to that, but in the case of my little trailer, I must be cursed. She never lost any paperwork for any other vehicle or trailer, even keeping the records for cars 20 years gone. Just for the little trailer (including notebooks of sketches and measurements for the build). I wonder if she has something against the little thing? Anyway, I'm going to try the same re-registration procedure again, without paperwork in hand, but I will have photos with me, and the actual expired license plate (with date sticker) this time. And after I get the new sticker, I'll keep the paperwork with my "ordnance", away from harm or loss. I don't blame her, just me, for letting it happen again. Postscript: took the sticker off the plate (license plate is too well secured) and went into the office. No questions, no problems, received new sticker for the plate. Wasn't even worth my worry.working on it wrote:... and my wife had long ago thrown away the bill of sale and registration, thinking it was now just junk metal. I went to the tax office anyway, and took with me two pictures- before and after- to show it was the same trailer frame (protruding cross-beams were identical), registered at the same address to the same person, from 25 years prior....The clerk hesitated, even after she looked up my records in the state database, so I called over the older clerk (probably the supervisor), and explained my case. No problem! Gotta love the long-time employees (old, like me), they can make a decision on the spot....
