As jy nie geregistreer is as n approved trailer builder nie vergeet maar. Beste is om n ou trailer te koop wat op die sisteem is en sy nommer oor te stamp. moet net nie a venter of bekende naam gebruik nie, dit moet se platbak.

Agree 100%

Tried the homebuild route but you cannot get it registered.

I build one myself and used my old venter trailer number and registration, worked well for 10 years untill I got stopped in a roadblock and they scanned the disc, it showed venter - colour  white, mine was clearly not a venter or white, long story short they  confiscated the trailer.

Mate of mine did the same, but he had his galvanized and then powder coated white, and had 2 "Venter" stickers made up at the local signage place.  Went through a few roadblock and was never even given a second glance.

I've got gold in my hand - reg papers for a home-built trailer.

That's it, full description, only weights specified - can be anything. Even when it was a rusty piece of junk in a garden corner for years, I kept the disk up to date.

Was a box trailer, now it's a bike trailer and will hopefully be worth something when selling time comes up ................

I built a trailer about 33 years ago on a mini rear subframe and suspension, had it registered and used it
extensively . 4 or 5 years ago, I decided I needed a bike trailer, so built one using a leaf spring suspension
a friend gave me. I kept both, and had duplicate number plates and licence discs for a while. The old one
was eventually badly rusted and unused, so I gave it to someone for farm use. I now use the bike trailer
for everything. Still registered as a "built up" trailer.
I still dont understand the issue with a home build. If its scrutinised and passes roadworthy , what are the pitfalls ?

No pitfalls but things have changed over the years ......... more f---ing rules, that' all. My trailer papers are also 30-odd years old.

As far as I know, you have to be a registered trailer builder to build and register them now - - 2nd hand info from a family member who is one of those.

'They' call it progress - I don't.

Maybe the OP can contact your family member to register his trailer, for a fee?

Nope - been there - he won't take liability for stuff he hasn't built.

Fair enough, I suppose. I also don't sign off others electrical work.

Thats the truth about a "home-build" trailer reg papers

I have 1 license and use it on 3 home builds.

As for the OP. Best is to shop around for a "home-build" reg :biggrin:

I tried the rest and still stick with the best.  -   ROOIVLEIS

This from 4x4community:

Quote
Do not even consider "buying" a registration document from so called registered MIB's who stopped manufacturing and who are only selling reg documants. It will boomarang and you WILL loose your trailer. The SAPS are currently conducting audits on all suspected transactions by individuals who only sell documents without manufacturing the trailers.
When a trailer is privately built take the following steps:
Keep all receipts of material
Take photographs as progress is made.
When finnished obtain a RPI (Request for Police Identification) from your local Registration Authority.
Present the trailer together with the RPI, receipts and photographs to the SAPS Vehicle Identification Section responsible for your area.
They will take a statement, make copies of everything, open an enquiry docket and issue a VIN (SAPVIN)
They will complete the RPI.
An application is made at your local Registartion Authority using the RPI and other required documents including weighbridge certificate, to have the trailer introduced on eNaTIS.
Your local RA will forward your application to the Provincial Help Desk where it will be introduced on eNaTIS. (Enquire regularly on progress from your RA as it is captured on a Task Management System and progress can be monitored)
After introduction on eNaTIS obtain a RPC (request for Police Clearance) and present to SAPS Clearance Office for Clearance.
Obtain Roadworthy.
Register and licence
Depending on which Province you are located the process should not take longer than 60 days
