I have a question that someone asked on a Facebook post, so here goes.

If you have a Talbert Flip Axle lowboy trailer (3 axle plus the flip) do you need a separate registration/plate, title and inspection for the flip axle part of the trailer???? Some commenter said that many states require the flip axle to be inspected, titled and have it's own plate while the rest of the trailer has it's own stuff.

Thank you for any help as it made me curious to know from better experts than the Facebook University scholars on the post!!

In Ontario, no. If you have: Truck + Jeep + Trailer w/ flip you only need plates for the truck, jeep and float.

Edit: to add, the plates have to be unobstructed and clearly visible. So if the trailer normally has the flip up then the plate has to be visible on the trailer and vise versa.

I don't know so I can only hypothesize. I would think if the flip axle is detachable then it could be viewed as a separate piece like a jeep or stinger and would have to be registered separate and therefore have it's own license plate. I would imagine if the trailer is registered as a 4 axle but you remove the 4th axle it's then considered a 3 axle... Again I really don't know so I'm just guessing.
