Carol, I called Scamp yesterday and was told it was illegal for them to copy up another VIN number sticker. I said that I had heard that they had done one in the past, but still a no.

Thats odd as they had no issues with sending me one 3 years ago - I wonder if it is a termonology issue. They actually call it a Compliance Sticker - "Motor Vechicle Safety Standard Sticker" is what is says on it. I needed one in order to get my trailer through an inspection here so I could legally import it. Perhaps if you tell them the trailer is going to be exported. I had to give them the VIN number and they produced it from that. The sticker has thier name on it, when the trailer was built, trailer weight, tire size and inflation rate and the VIN that I supplied. Can't really see why that would be illegal as they are using the information from their own data base. Hummm

Danny another thought is that you need to talk with the girls in the admin office and not the parts department if you haven't already done so. When I talked to them they told me the know what I needed and why as they had helped with a number of other trailer exports. You could also run some chaulk over your VIN and offer to send them a photo to confirm you really do have the trailer with that VIN.

Carol, I just called and asked for the "Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Sticker" from the front desk. I said they had given out one to you a few years ago. She said they used to, but was told that it was illegal and stopped doing it.

Make a sticker yourself. Or if you're worried about the VIN not showing on the frame buy a metal stamping set from Harbor Freight Search results for: 'metal stamping'. Those that replace the frame or do major weld jobs often need to "replace" the VIN with something readable. As long as it matches the VIN on the title and registration...

I think I'm just going to make a sticker. Donna, I did get a metal stamp kit from harbor frieght and tried it. The only thing that happened was it flattend out the stamp letter and didn't make any impression on the frame. The frame must be made of pretty good steel back then.
