I am going to be towing my dad's splitter pretty soon and am wondering if it needs to be titled and registered with plates for me to do so. I live in Maryland and the code is about as clear as mud regarding this. A trailer is classified as something designed to transport people or property. I think I can get around that definition with the wood splitter, but I am wondering what the rest of you are doing. Obviously, opinions from people in Maryland, my state, would be really appreciated, but I would like to hear from everybody else that is out of state.
