What equipment is required to be on a trailer?
A standard trailer must have working trailer lights, two safety chains and a properly rated trailer coupler. Larger trailers weighing 3,000 pounds or more must also have trailer brakes.
Safety is the highest priority. To safely tow your trailer, you may also need some additional towing equipment, such as ratchet straps to tie down cargo.
For questions about trailer license plates and local regulations, we recommend consulting the Department of Transportation.
