No, but I know guys that register their trucks with a heavier GVW to get out of emissions testing, but not due to towing

Yes they asked about my trailer and I could not deny it as it was registered in my name and on the screen, I wanted to go with the lower weight and if I could it was cheaper (the Scot. in me) its an extra 30 a year.

I checked with the dealership and they had never heard of it. We found out that there is a difference in rules for towijg a boat versus travel trailers.

In Illinois, when registering my truck, I've never been asked about a trailer. When registering my trailer, I've never been asked about my truck.
