generaly a bill of sale , or receipt. a weigh slip from a comercial scale, is all you need to title a trailer, though your state may require an inspection for safety, by a mechanic.

I purchased my CT from PA, in PA they apparently don't do VIN checks. When I bought my CT the title had a VIN number. When I went back to Ohio to register it, they do an inspection and VIN check, I did not previously realize that the VIN plate was blank where the VIN was supposed to be and Ohio would not register it at first. After several trips, I was finally able to register it with no problems, you do the math.

I had a friend who, after repeated attempts, gave up trying to register and non-titled trailer in AZ. I ended up registering it for him in MN as a home made. This worked out swell as years later I ended up buying the trailer, and it was already in my name.

RE: No VIN no Title
I hope that AJ doesn't have this same problem (and the one I posted re: a Bambi I bought)
Bought a Stolen Travel Trailer
As we all know, small travel trailer, boat and motorhome scams abound on CraigsList and elsewhere.
Basic rule: "If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is"

Yep, NY didn't require title or registration when my trailer was last on the road. I did my homework and WAS smarter than DMV. I told them what the rules were and I finally got all the correct paperwork. #1 rule....do research, call several offices And demand answers. There is a way to do it, you just have to find it

AZ does not do a Vin inspection. I have registered 4 personal RVs there and not once did they ask to see them. I have also done the DMV work for the motorhome dealer I work for and have never had to take an RV for an inspection.

That said, for my own, I have always had a title. 3 of my titles were from out of state and required no notorization. The leocraft had a clear notorized AZ title.

As far as getting a VIN.. I can't offer any info. My point..my experience with AZ DMV says bringing one in from out of state is far less problematic than doing it logically. Go figure. Find a friend in South Dakota etc you trust and title/register it there. Then "Buy" it from them.

as an aside.. the very first thing I look at when contemplating purchasing a rig is the title. No title, I walk away.

I called DMV, they told me the first step is inspection level 1, at the inspection they will tell me what the next step is. I ordered the back lights from ebay, I will rewire the trailer and go to inspection, I will let everyone know as I go.
I bought it for 500$, and I received a bill of sale with the gentleman address and phone number, he already puin t a new floor he is the one that told me about you guys, he bought a 17 . Thank for your help. By the way how many numbers in a Burro vin? I found something on the trailer that looks like this 3??5 VT does that look like a possible vin for the burro?

Federal law requires a 17 character VIN that is made up of letters and numbers. The first part is codes for manufacturer,type of vehicle,year built,factory where built,etc. The last 6 digits are the production serial number.

AZ Title UPDATE

Since the shell was off the trailer, I went to a DMV 3rd party with the bare trailer, it took 15 min, they made an inspection level 1 and installed a vin on the trailer and gave me a title. it is now titled as a 2012 Trailer.

thanks

AJ
