Does Kansas require all trailers to be titled and/or registered?
Kansas law requires trailers to be titled and registered. There are three exceptions to the trailer titling/registration requirement.
The 3 exceptions are:
- Farm trailers hauling 6,000 lbs. or less are exempt from title and registration. Hauling weight means the weight of any load transported by the farm trailer and does not include the weight of the trailer itself.
- 2) Farm trailers used and designed for transporting hay or forage from a field to a storage area or from a storage area to a feedlot, which is only incidentally moved or operated upon the highways, except this exception does not apply to farm semitrailers; and
- Trailer with an operating weight of 2,000 lbs or less may be titled and registered at the owner’s option, they are not required to be titled and registered. Operating weight means the total weight of the trailer and any load transported thereon. A trailer meeting the 2,000 lbs. exemption may be sold on a bill of sale.
