I am looking at a trailer (from out of state) to bring to Indiana. Does anyone know how I would register or license a used trailer that has only a bill of sale? Would I be ticketed on the way (thru Tenn, Ill and In) for not having a license? There is a VIN visible on the frame, does that help? I haven't found the BMV website to be very helpful, but I will try to get through to a person to ask this question.

I have found it easier to go to a DMV that is not real busy and ask them my question.

You really should call the DMV... Here you can get a "trip permit" Was there no title? You will have to apply within your state for a 'lost title' but i would be asking why there is no title?

I got an e-mail reply to my BMV question yesterday. I am surprised since I have been left waiting for hours at a local office while other people came and went! Their response was that I need 1) a NOTARIZED bill of sale (with specified things on the bill of sale, they gave me a link to a template) 2) A form for an affadavit that I am the legitimate owner of the trailer (another template) and 3) An inspection by a state police officer or someone at the BMV office (another template). Doesn't sound TOO painful!

I talked to the owners on the phone about the title. They said the person they bought it from got it at auction and it had no title. They assumed because it was a Burro that it had been assembled from a kit and therefore would be considered a homemade trailer for titling. They never titled it because they used it for camping close to home and just temporarily transferred tags from another trailer to move it. Seems plausible...

Thanks for the responses. I am going to ask BMV if there is such a thing as a trip permit here. It would be a logical way to handle the ticketing question! I am a little sceptical about expecting logic considering my experiences with BMV in Indy and DMV in Cali, however.

Illinois says you just need a bill of sale and a copy of the owners current registration.
Some states do not title under 3000lbs. Like CT.
