1/ The completeness of data on trailer registrations varies greatly. Data are reported to the extent available and in some cases are supplemented by estimates of the Federal Highway Administration.

2/ This column includes all commercial type vehicles and semitrailers that are in private or for-hire use.

3/ Several States do not require the registration of light farm or automobile trailers.

4/ Mobile homes and house trailers are shown in this column for States which require them to be registered and are able to segregate them from other trailers. In States where this classification is not available, house trailers are included with light car trailers.

5/ State did not provide current data. Table displays State's 2007 data for private and commercial and state, county and municipal trailers.
