Dear Governor Of Tennessee Bill Haslam:
As an elected official elected by the people of Tennessee, who has been sworn to protect lives, property and the constitution of the State of Tennessee...I call on you to issue a proclamation.
Thieves are targeting not only Boy Scout Trailers but anybody's trailers and we have many examples of who, what , when, where and why....but to make matters simple, we will highlight 3 immediate issues.
One- Tennessee is the number Five state in the Nation for stolen trailers. This state needs to be called out.
The reality is that the State of Tennessee is somewhat complicit. As well as 12 other states in inflicting damage to these good hearted folk, budding entrepreneurs and Churches. Tennessee chooses not to title trailers, meaning, very few have license plates attached …. Or even a means for law enforcement officers to make effective inquiry of the various computerized lookouts / wants for stolen property. Think about it … as a Highway Patrolman, on andy INTERSTATE or State Road coming behind a utility trailer headed to a flea market anywhere to sell “stuff”...there is no method WHATSOEVER for that officer to make a computerized inquiry to establish reasonable cause which leads to probable cause and an arrest / recovery. YOU ALL hamstring law enforcement inflicting further harm on your residents.
Two-Farmers can simply slap on a "Farm Use" tag on any trailer that may be stolen and the police never question these trailers. In fact, they can even tow a trailer without "Safety Chains" and possibly kill a person who may have voted for you.
Three- I traveled throughout your state on the way to Florida. On the breaks, on the access roads of I-95, I counted 37 trailers that were being towed by a Georgia tagged vehicle.....but the trailer lacked any tag....not even a "Farm Use" tag.....no police enforcement.
This is why your Citizens needs to be aware of what is going on and what steps your office is going to take against thefts of trailer. People who can steal a trailer in 30 seconds and get away with it.
We are ready to help....we are not fake news....you have been sworn to protect the Citizens of Georgia from harm. Are you going to ignore our cause? Eventually the people will find out, despite the lack of news coverage.

Do I have to register my trailer in Tennessee?
All camping trailers, regardless of dimensions, must be titled and registered, except those that collapse or fold down. The State of Tennessee does not require individuals to title and license utility trailers for private use, as long as you are pulling the trailer behind a Tennessee-licensed vehicle.
