Very true, however I'd highly recommend hanging onto your bill of sale just in case...you never know when that little piece of paper could get you out of a jam...also, you might think about putting some kind of identifiable marking on the dolly.

I'm seriously thinking of having my initials cut into mine somewhere with a welder or something...just for ID purposes.

If you take the tongue off from the frame up inside the top of the U bracket it mounts in is where Demco normally stamps the serial number.

i don't know about texas, but in washington state a dolly does not need plates as long as a licensed vehicle is being transported on it. if towing the dolly without a licensed, currently registered vehicle load, the dolly is considered a trailer and requires plates. it is a $100+ ticket. my dolly has a small motorcycle plate on it, costs $33 annually. for that price, i have a title also.
when i bought my stehl dolly new, fully assembled, i got a ''certificate of origin''.
my new stehl dolly had 3/4'' toe in when i bought it new but i didn't use it for a year and a half. the first set of tires lasted 600 miles. after almost $1k, 2 sets of tires and 2 alignments i finally got that fixed.
check the toe with a tape measure before buying any dolly.
get a spare wheel and tire for your dolly. i had a blowout in crater lake np oregon and i am sure glad i had the spare and a small bottle jack with me.

HAHA! No apology needed...you made a good point. No need to mark the thing up if it has a SN on it right?? Never thought of that. Now who has the muddled brain??
