Rhode Island Trailer Inspections - Learn Something Everyday

I just got the CRD inspected, and I learned that my little diesel will pass in RI with the CEL Light on. But, while researching, I came across this...

A: Yes, all trailers (camper, utility, freight, flatbed etc.) with a Gross Vehicle Weight of over 1,000 lbs. are required to pass inspection by June 30th each year. New trailers are exempt for 2 years or 24,000 miles. It is especially important to have travel trailers inspected as required due to the size and weight of these trailers and the fact that they put such an additional burden on the tow vehicles. The proper function and condition of the tires, braking, and suspension systems is critical.

Has anyone in this state REALLY gotten an inspection sticker??? I guess it has been a law on the books for quite some time. 31-38-14

I think I am going to spend the $11 just to cover my behind. If there was an accident, even if not my fault, I don't want a lawyer finding this out and coming after me with it.
