      register yes probably and you probably need a plate if i rmember correctly, although if its under 3k lbs...it doesnt need to be inspected...however thats loaded...but most of the weight will be on the wheels of whatever car your towing...so i doubt that applies

      the place i rent my dollys from, they do not have plates. i think it has something to do with the width of it, or something. they guy told me once, but i forget.

      for trailers though (like snowmobile - dont know about biggger ones) you need a plate... but i think it's only like $8 a year... and you can buy a 5 yr sticker

      sorry i cant be of any definitive help... but yea... call pendot, or even AAA they should be able to tell you

      I used to own stuff. Then I sold it. So i bought different stuff. Now I just have different stuff.
