Re: Certificate of Origin for Galilee trailer needed
Here you go - from PA DMV - my bolding, their ambiguity...
To register your homemade trailer, or one made from a kit, you must have the trailer pass a safety inspection. This must take place at a state-approved safety inspection station. Your trailer will be photographed during the inspection.
After passing, present the inspector or certified document reviewer with:
Completed form MV-426B
Proof of ownership (title, Manufacturer's Statement of Origin or Certificate of Origin, bill of sale)
Completed form MV-1 (unavailable online)
Detailed description on how the vehicle was assembled
The title fee for homemade trailers is $22.50, plus you'll need to pay sales tax, and the appropriate trailer registration fee. The annual registration fees for trailers weighing:
3,000 lbs. or less―$6
3,001 lbs. to 10,000 lbs.―$12
10,001 lbs. or more―$27
You may register trailers 10,000 pounds or less for one to five years at a time.
