I don't know about Texas but in Illinois it's very easy to title a trailer as home built.

As far a homemade trailer goes in NC, go to the DMV and say you need a VIN for a homemade trailer. They'll give you one and ask you to stamp it into the trailer. You can buy metal stamps from Harbor Freight. Once stamped, you'll then need to take the trailer by a local law enforcement office where they'll take a look at it to see you stamped the number in and then they'll sign off on it. Take that piece of paper back to the DMV and you can get a license plate/title for it.

TX does not require a title on a trailer that weighs less than 4000 lbs. All you have to do is register it. The registration will say "shop built trailer". If it weighs more that 4000 pound the process is the same as far as registration goes but they will issue you a title for it. Hope this was helpful. It wil cost you about $30-$40.

I have learned that the state of Illinois has just changed the way they title "Home Made Trailers" You now have to have the trailer inspected by the secratary of state police.
