Hi All,

We recently made the move from SA to QLD (Chinchilla) and we're slowly catching up with rego swap overs etc. Having had the fright of my life yesterday with the car rego swap ($65 for a roadworthy, an increase of $120 a year on insurance and then $1012 for a new years worth of rego!!!) I thought I would find out what I need to do for the trailers.

I've a Kimberley Kamper trailer (so that's got gas too) and a standard tandem 7 * 5 trailer as well. What do I need to ask for from the service agent? How much do you expect to pay for, I presume, something like a roadworthy certificate again?

On the upside we've discovered the Bunya Mountains already and if you enjoy walking it is simply heaven, so glorious and certainly something we'd missed in our little bit of the desert in SA!

I would think that it is obvious that you would ring the QLD RTA and ask them. I know that would be the very first stop for us.

Then you have less chance of being over serviced by the local service station.

If that has been done already then you should know what checks are required for rego so just call the service station or drop in and ask them.

You need a safety certificate if trailer has an ATM of over 750kg

You need a gas certificate if there is any gas appliances on the trailer regardless of ATM.

Kevin,

That would be amazing, in the main office? Already discovered it for dog rego!

We're just renting until we find our feet but loving the town!
