    Some of these rules might not have existed 3 years ago. I never had my trailer weighed either.

    You can weigh your trailer at any Ministry of Transportation Motor Vehicle Inspection Station. Look for the green-and-white sign along highways. There are more than 12,000 stations across Ontario.

    Once you confirm the trailer’s weight exceeds 900kg, bring the following documents to the ServiceOntario centre:

    • a weight slip, the document proving the weight of the trailer when empty
      • weigh your trailer and get a weight slip at a:
        • grain scale
        • recyclers
        • CAT (Caterpillar) scale
        • municipal dump (if equipped)


    • a signed letter stating ownership that includes the following details:


    1. description of body type (e.g. dimensions, covering, number of axels, etc)
    2. declaration that trailer is homemade
    3. year trailer was built

    The rules on safeties hasn't changed. I've been with MTO since 98 and the existing rules were in effect long before I got there.

    You got me thinking greatwhite. Perhaps small light duty home made trailers don't require a VIN. I'd have to look it up.

    I didn't engrave any VIN number, but thanks for making me go check just noticed I must have lost my ownership for it. I will have to go buy a replacement. Wonder what that will cost?

    I lost the ownership for my atv and it cost me 10 bucks if I recall.

    Here's a pic of my 'Home Made Trailer' Ownership...this was purchased in 2010 for a trailer that was designed to carry 4 cords of firewood. Big and heavy.

    There were no requirements for safety, weight or mention of putting a VIN on it ....just paid for the plate and stuck it on.

    I think that is were the 900kg comes in. Under that you don't need plates ?

    Mike if I recall I had to fill out some form and check off that the trailer was made for loaded under 3500 pounds or something like that or maybe that it weighed under 3500?? Can't remember now.

    I'm thinking under that and it doesn't need a VIN, but just guessing. It definitely still needs a plate.
