Trailer MCOs / MSOs


Trailer manufacturers are required to place two labels on their trailers.

The Certification label (aka VIN label)....

US TRAILER VIN STICKER

... and the Tire Placard Label with the tire and loading information.

US TRAILER Tire Placard Label Sticker

You may notice that the Tire Placard presents info which is also required on the VIN sticker. Even though that is redundant, it is the regulation. Of course the tire and air pressure info and the rim size are also on the actual tires and rims ... and of course since people may replace tires and rims with after market parts that are completely different, having the potentially wrong info on a permanent label (actually 2 permanent labels) seems to unnecessarily create potential problems, that is the regulations.

DOT - NHTSA VIN / CERTIFICATION LABEL AND TIRE PLACARD AND LOADING INFORMATION LABEL LOCATION REGULATION:
"The VIN for a trailer must appear on the label certifying the vehicle’s compliance with all applicable FMVSS that the manufacturer must affix to a location on the forward half of the trailer’s left side, such that it is easily readable from outside the trailer without moving any part of the vehicle."

The two labels (VIN label and Tire Placard Label) then are to be located on the front part of the trailer and on the left side of the trailer. They labels can be located on the body of the trailer or on the A-frame - hitch sub-frame.

trailer labeling placement

The Certification label (aka VIN label) contains the VIN number of course and also the manufacturer's name, month and year of vehicle manufacture completion, vehicle type (TRAILER), tire and rim size and air pressure, gross vehicle weight rating and gross axle weight ratings and the compliance statement ....



An easy, simple, quick labeling option is to use the weather-resistant inkjet printer labels and seal each label after printing -- either once on the trailer or just before placing it on the trailer -- by either spraying it with a quick light coat of clear spray paint (Krylon, Rustoleum etc) and/or by placing a clear protective laminate sticker over it....

... For that we recommend the onlinelabels.com OL-700 labels , specifically using the white inkjet labels (OL700WI) as the base label for the VIN label and the Tire Placard label and then use the OL-700CK clear label as the laminate protective label to put over the printed label.... Again you can spray the printed white VIN label with clear aerosol paint to seal it either instead of using the clear laminate sticker OR in-addition-to (obviously before) using the clear protective laminate sticker.
