well after shelling out $1500 to put new stainless brakes on my trailer after the original drums would not pass delaware inspection i have a couple of decisions/questions to make/ask. you can have a trailer registered for 4000lbs or less and not have to worry about going through inspection. they were willing to let me do that at the motor vehicle department. of course i would be overweight with a 26' boat and a 9400lb rated trailer. but i am already overweight as it was only tagged for 6000lbs by the dealer. so my question that is looking for others opinions. is it really a big deal if i am overweight at 6000lbs versus 4000lbs. i have always kept my stuff in top notch shape so it isn't like i am going to let the brakes go soft. i am just looking to avoid the tow up to motor vehicle and then have to stomp on my brakes w/ the boat on the back. i have never slammed my brakes on like they wanted me to in the inspection lanes. what do you guys do about your registrations w/ boat that are over 4000 lbs. register for what they really weigh or not worry about it and go for the least expensive rating at 4000lbs so you can also avoid the inspection lane deal. giv eme some feedback guys as i know a bunch of you have boats my size or bigger.
