First, I would need to add a red light and a licence plate light, and reflectors, and of course legally requires mudguards. So there are two main questions.
1. How difficult would it be to get a licence plate? I cannot find any regulations as to what a trailer should be. Do I declare is as home built as it might not have a serial number?
2. It will have the two methods, basically a bracket and pin, with a tether. However it does not have a hitch and ball, does it legally require a hitch and ball for a motorcycle, or would the bracket, pin and tether be legal?
I have searched MVSA and HTA and a motorcycle trailer in Ontario only needs a red light and licence plate at night, and mudguards, two methods of attachments.
I only want it to use behind my scooter around town for grocery shopping, laundry, taking stuff to the dump, etc., and a regular motorcycle trailer is expensive and too heavy for my lighter motorcycle. I see them in frequent use on full size motorcycles.
Any thoughts on the subject?

So you should review your policy, because in the event you need to make a claim or there is a claim against you; your insurance doesn't deny you coverage.
