    Re: Harbor freight trailer

    I'd still like to know what the OP was trying to tell us. It doesn't sound like he was proposing using a Harbor Freight trailer to actually haul a boat.

          I have no idea what you're talking about. But this is the first time I've been referred to as a "fundamentalist conservative," which, if you knew me, would be about the last thing I am.

            If there is an ongoing issue with Harbor Freight stuff, it is the nuts and bolts that are included are usually crap. Replace them when you put the thing together and you end up with a much better product.

              You would think that with a name like godfirst you would at least believe that lying is wrong....
              You suggest that someone should consider fraudulently placing the vin tag from one trailer on another to circumvent title laws.

              IE some thug steals my boat trailer and you buy it cheap without a title and then cover MY vin number with another so YOU don't get ripped off.....

              If disagreeing with you makes me a fundamentalist conservative then call me Rush any day.

                My suggestion is to register it in Maine, then move it to your home state. That seams to be a common way to deal with trailers that are messed up.

                        Agreed!
                        Usually, condescending remarks and name calling isn't the most effective way to get help from public forums.

                          Here in the USA we don't have the best laws and systems, but they are what we have and what we use. No country is a utopia. Don't like the US System? Try another country!

                          Having worked in the government, it nettles me when people think "the system" is against them. First off, there is no "system" and second "it" is not against anyone. The laws exist--for the most part-- for the good of the many. Thus, because of this concept, some will suffer--be it aggravation or monetary or whatever. Hell, I was on the receiving end a couple of times and I certainly did not like it, but, you don't see me crying. I worked within the parameters of "the system" and acheived a workable (for me) solution.

                          Thus: Whiners about the inequity of the law get no sympathy from me. They get some cheese to go with their whine.

                            Nothing new under the sun, and being criticized from some of this replies from a obvious malacious comments moving to another country I bet some of you are flying pirate flags I fly a USA one myself.

                              I've bought and sold so many rigs over the years that the admiral has taken to calling me Mr. Haney, yet while Arkansas does require trailer titles I've never had an issue on either side of a transaction including interstate deals. It's been my experience that one's attitude is the single greatest factor in the ownership transfer equation. An adversarial approach, which is clearly the one you have chosen, will get one exactly nowhere and is certainly not consistent with the ethics or beliefs you purport to espouse.
                              Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
