Humpback,

If you intend towing the trailer on public roads and reserves, yes it must be registered.

My "Flip'n'Easy" came with an engineering certificate which made registration simple.

Are you sure a collapsable boat needs a trailer, buy a porta bote and you can put it on your roof rack.

Myles,

You still need to get it to the water though.
I find it is better to set up the boat (in my case a tinnie) with the motor mounted and everything else (eg: flotation vests and other safety equipment, fishing gear, etc.) already to go when you get to the launch site.

There is nothing worse than having to do all the preparation at the water's edge while looking out for things such as Crockodiles:-)
