INSPECTION AND REGISTRATION
A brief bit of bureaucracy and we’re square with the fuzz.
WAITING FOR INSPECTION AT THE DMV
And, passed! We now have a registered 5’x8′ Ironton trailer. It was a pretty easy process, just a short drive and a bit of waiting in line. The drive to the DMV and back was also a good test run for the new trailer and hitch. Everything worked great. The lights do their blinky thing, the wheels go round and round, the trailer goes where the car goes, and we arrived with all the same parts we left with. Time to wrap up the teardrop body now that we have a legal rolling platform.
WHEEL AND TIRE UPGRADE
I swapped the provided 12″ steel wheels with bias ply tires for some 13″ aluminum wheels with radial tires. These should roll smoother and cooler. The provided wheels were only recommended up to 55mph, certainly not fast enough for today’s freeways.
