Somebody will correct me if I'm wrong
If it's purchased out of state from a PRIVATE seller, you won't have to pay taxes but you'll still need to go to your local tax office and get a waiver of taxes in order to register it with DOT.
If it's in state you pay taxes on it at the point of registering it.
you can devalue the trailer
Most people do this in order to save a few $$$'s on taxes. Just don't devalue it so much as to draw unwanted attention from the "wonderful" people at the DMV.
