    what has to be titled, what doesn't? if i have a pick-up box trailer, does it have to be titled? does a trailer have to have a separate liscence plate? if it matters, i'm in oregon.

    certain slow moving pieces of farm equipment or ag stuff does not need to be licensed... otherwise pretty much everything that rolls or is towed down the road has to be licensed...
    your secenario... the pickup box trailer... thats a definate ...yes.. title .. or in your case a special construction title and vin attached by OSP/DMV... and a license plate ... no way of getting around it

    No you need a bill of sale for the parts that you use to build your trailor.... That is how I did mine in AZ, I moved it from CA to AZ with a trip permit from CA...

    Here's a good place to start looking.

    Also, cam's post is a really good piece of information. And last but not least, it's always good to the check your local and state laws because there can be variances between states. And even more, calling your local represenatives of the highway patrol is always sound advice. Those guys and gals usually have some pretty good insight to lesser known parts of the state's vehicle laws.
