I bought an older Scamp
without a title. Never want to go through that again--Never.
I bought it in NY State. Was semi-abandoned, unloaded on a speculator who semi-fixed it up--he had bit off more than he could chew...etc. But, I wanted it bad enough to settle for a notarized bill of sale from him. When I attempted to get the trailer registered in NJ that's
when I found out a bill of sale ain't worth the paper it is written on.
Took me nearly 6 months of jumping through many
hoops before the NJ DMV was satisfied it wasn't stolen property.
