Post Posted: Thu Jun 22, 2017 2:21 pm    Post subject: Home made boat trailer and the MVR

Howdy,

Just thought I might air my frustrations at my most recent MVR dealings.......I have a home made boat trailer that has been sitting around unused for a couple of years, it has never been registered. Anyway I gave it a bit of a clean up....got rid of the light board and rigged up some permanent mounted lights...new wheels and tyres etc and would now like to have it registered. So onto the MVR website I go...lots of good info on there, just none about how to register a trailer that does not have a compliance plate...it does say you will need to have a compliance inspection...but there is no link to what that inspection will cover and what the regs are...you know so you could check yourself first to make sure you are compliant and therefore save yourself and everyone else a lot of time and effort rather than waiting at the MVR for an inspection only to be told you are not compliant.....

Anyway...so I give them a call..put the phone on speaker and wait to see if I can speak to someone....after 25 minutes I hung up and sent them an email query...to the email address they provide for online queries....that was on Monday....today is Thursday....still no reply....ummmm...is this a first world country or what...I mean for FFS...you try and do the right thing.....WTF....anyway...I will keep you all informed on how I progress and when I get a resolution we might post that for all to learn from....cheers

Don’t know how its done here but ive done it in Tas, NSW and Vic.
Build the trailer. Go and see a licenced inspection place and they will tell you what to do.
They give you the compliance numbers and you can either engrave them onto a plate and attach that to the trailer or letter/number punch the details into the drawbar.
Forget the mvr in the 1st instance and go to a private company
get the thing passed by the privateer and then take it to the mvr

Rated chain and shackes and clearance lights or reflectors dep. On width are a must.... if you dont have a punch and have decent skills with the welder u can weld yr numbers on too.

As mentioned go elsewhere and ask advice first to save the hassle ....promotor trailers or similar companies would be able to help u out I'd reckon. MVR is always packed. Hope u get out there soon.

Love the trailer rego system ... I had to remove a thick chain at the towball and put on a smaller one because the smaller one was "rated" as per law and the thick chain wasn't.

I'm from the government and I'm here to help ...

Post Posted: Fri Jun 23, 2017 5:04 pm    Post subject: Re: Home made boat trailer and the MVR

Thanks guys for the responses......I will most likely go to Promoter trailers......this is my little standby/camping boat...have a 6mtr as well...but this one is more like the crabbing and 4wd type boat. Up until now I have only used it when heading away on big trips and it goes on top of the camper trailer, the motor goes on a bracket on the draw bar.......but the trailer I have for it is solid and well made...just never registered. I am getting sick of putting the big boat in at Buffalo Ck just go crabbing so time to get this 3.8 on the road so to speak.......My son is in the process of getting his licence as well so won't be long before him and his mates are wanting to drag it around on bush/beach trips.
I will keep you informed on how I go!

The other way is to start with the draw bar or section of steel with the compliance plate a fixed to of a registered trailer and then just rebuild everything else. Works a treat for the MVR boys.

there is a section on the mvr website that tells you what the requirements are or what you cant have/do the lights that are needed are important to mvr dannett is right any old trailer with the trailer number on it with the rest of the trailer rebuilt works well .. they update the new length width etc .. but a small trailer with working lights . good tyre condition rated chain and shackles, wheel guards and any rust hidden from sight you should be fine .. just book it in for a registration and go for it..dont forget a spot for the number plate

I finally got a response from the mvr.....that is a story in itself so I won't go into it now....however they have allotted me a VIN and the trailer will go into promotor for them to do a compliance check....they can make any additions that may be lacking and once the trailer is compliant they lodge it with mvr...I then go on line and pay the rego and go into mvr and pick up the plates.

Well that is the theory anyway...we will see how it plays out after tomorrow....I will inform as this progresses and then post the procedure up for those who may find it helpful.
