TT Safety inspection sticker in Texas

I'm due for my trailer safety state inspection in July, is this done only in TX or all of you guys get it to?

I wish we had something like this in WI. No car safety inspections either. I see far too many potential road disasters.

Not required in Minnesota. But as DocBrown said, it would be nice as there are a lot of scare "things" on the road.

In Pennsylvania, all vehicles except trailers without brakes are required to be inspected annually.

I get one in VIRGINIA from a regular STATE INSPECTION location. They check the lights and look at the BRAKE PADS on one wheel. My yearly INSPECTION STICKER is placed on the DRIVERs SIDE of the Trailer Tongue area.

One visit they did the PULL the Trailer Emergency Disconnect PIN and made sure the electric brake locked up the wheel they had jacked up inspeting the BRAKE PAD.

I have always towed my trailer to the inspection station but have noticed some will drop their trailer off and come back later to pick it up.

Have no idea how things get inspected without the tow vehicle present????

One of our local RV DEALERS is also a INSPECTION STATION for RV's...

Mine's been out for a while. I had the trailer in to the dealer for repairs late last year and asked them to give me a new one, but I guess they forgot. I was VERY surprised when I found an inspection sticker on my trailer in the first place...

Will be interested to hear what other Texans have to say about this.

When I bought our first used trailer, I noticed there was an old inspection sticker on it but it was expired. So I asked the salesman if they would take care of that during PDI. He told me they were no longer required in Texas. Being a relative newbie, I took him at his word (dumb).

Since then, I've recently learned he's a lying mother so our present trailer got inspected earlier this month and new trailer will be at first opportunity.

Imagine that... an RV salesman lying!

No in Kentucky. Would be good if handled fairly but all too often they are not much more than a way to collect an inspection fee.
