No Vin, no title how to register in AZ

Hi, I am new to the forum My name is AJ and I am from Arizona. I Just bought a Burro, My first one, been dreaming about it for a while. I will be pulling it with my H3, according to the seller it is a 1980 or so, and he said it was a kit built by family that was never registered, What is the best way to title this little thing in Arizona.

Thank you for helping.

Actually the kit should have come with a certificate of origin which would be used to procure a title. Lacking that, you should approach someone at the DMV and tell them the truth and ask for help, Go to an office some distance from your house the first time so that you can keep all options open!
A little judiciously applied obsequiousness might be wise when dealing with autocratic bureaucrats.
Look here...

You need to go to you local state office that deals with it and ask. Usually it needs a statement of origin. There may be other possibilities. I've never heard of a "kit built" camper but anything is possible I guess. I hope you at least got a signed dated bill of sale.

Burro kits were trailers that were complete on the outside, but you had to assemble and install the inside yourself. They should have received a "Manufacturers Statement of Origin" which would be a printed form.

If they can't come up with it check magazines that are for antique car buffs. You may find ads for title procurement.

Here in NY the "right answer" for registering a trailer that had no paperwork is "it's been in my possesion for more than a year". Or we can register one as "home made". If all else fails, there's a thread over on the T&TTT site about how you can easily register a trailer in Maine, even if you don't live there. It's by a PA resident, apparently PA is tough to deal with on paperwork, so he registered his in Maine and I believe a few others have done so too. That would give you a registration that could be used to get a AZ title later. Bob

Hmmmm.... A 42 year old virgin??? This story has the makings of a movie. It's hard to believe that in 40+ years that it has never been registered somewhere, making it a bit suspect to me.
As mentioned, there are several states that don't title older trailers and getting transferrable registration there seems to be fairly easy. But be warned; I once bought an Airstream Bambi in VA with a "fresh" MS registration. When I traced the ownership through the Wally Byam (sp?) group it turned out that it had been stolen from a storage yard in VA and re-registered in MS by mail. The real owners didn't even know it was gone. And Yes, the perps were caught.
Again, be careful, Sheriff Joe has a free parking place and pink jump suits for trailer thieves in PHX.

Burro's "zombie" site can be viewed at burrotrailers.com The site doesn't know that the company folded a dozen years ago.

I suspect the webmaster keeps it up as a portfolio to show potential clients.

Did it ever have plates or "tags"? Hard to believe it was never towed on the road. That paperwork might help.

Sometimes you just have to out think the DMV.

You will have to check with your DMV as the answer to your question will be dependent upon your states laws. Unfortunately, not every state handles this issue the same.

Oooops, I reread my last post on this and I now realize that this Burro is being presented as a 32 (not 42) year old virgin..... But my concerns about legal ownership still apply (as does it's untouched status.)
