After much confusion and research I found the answer and in accordance with North Carolina Division of Motor vehicles, Vehicle Registration Section Title Manual, Section 2, Chapter 1, page 3 "...Camping trailers are not to be included in the weight declared for license on a truck, if used only for recreational purposes. License weight on the truck should include the tongue part that is in the truck weight only, not the full weight of the camper. Fee for a camper trailer is $11.00."
All other trailers such as boat trailers do not appear to be included in this "exception" for travel trailers. Hope that helps.
