That wouldn't stop me from doing it unless I thought the trailer wasn't really mine (stolen not recovered). Been there done that when I bought a stolen trailer (it did have a VIN).

What in the heck do the people you bought it from say? Maybe they can apply for a lost title and then transfer it to you. Did they ever hold title?

It is illegal to just stamp a random VIN and I could go to jail for it. How do I even pick a VIN if I wanted to do that, how do I know that it dosent show up as stolen with my randomly picked VIN?
The people I bought it from said it sat in their barn for 10 years and it came with the barn when she bought it from an estate and they have n paperwork for it. It was last registered in 1982

Well I don't know what to tell you then. You have bought a trailer that you can't use unless someone gets creative or finds something that will appease the DMV gods. I hate it when people have this problem!

At this point I wouldn't be afraid of using a grinder, what do you have to loose. Just go slow and don't use a heavy hand.

What is on the "paperwork", anything you can use? How did they know it was last registered in 1982? Is there a possibility you can register it as a "home built" trailer? In some states that is fairly easy to do.

*sigh* Note to everyone reading this...DON"T BUY A TRAILER WITHOUT THE PROPER PAPER WORK!!!! If you think something is amiss, it probably is, have the seller go the the DMV with you. If they won't pass it by. I know we all get excited to find a trailer and "over look common sense".

There is a way to do it. It happens all the time. I wouldn't steer people away from it, just make sure you know what you are in for. I searched and alot if people here have done it. I just need to locate the VIN

It has plates on it with the 1982 reg sticker. Home built requires receipts for the parts I built it with

How about asking DMV if they can back track the title through the old plates.

It's a long shot but a question cost nothing.

Bill, When I called DMV they say their records only go back to 2002 (?!?!?!?!) We called another DMV and asked them"what if a murder occurred in a vehicle, what do you do to locate the vehicle owner?" I mean...2002?!?!?!? How can you delete all your records from that long ago?????? So someone is looking to see if there are archives. Someone did this before with the same trailer same missing VIN

Why is it illegal to put your vin on your trailer. If your title has the vin and you got that title with your trailer, then it is not illegal to stamp your vin, just like stamping your last 4 digits ssn on tools and other items you own, it is a way of identifying something you own.
You can buy the die set at Harbor Freight, I'm going to do mine as my vin is slowly disappearing off my label.

Do you have a vin number anywhere on any paperwork.

Was told my Play Pac is garbage

After doing all my research before purchase and getting all MY ducks in order and jumping through their hoops, I was told today my play pac is garbage and not worth a thing. Yep...exact words. Despite being told they will assign me a vin that I can then use to get a title. They now dont know what to do. I filled out their form, paid their fee, just like they told me. Went to the guy who was supposed to inspect it to make sure it isnt stolen, and then issue me a vin. They didnt tell me they think its stolen. I have a bill of sale and letter from the person who owned it for the last 10 years. And yet...for some very unclear to me reason, wont give me a VIN. I want a crying emoticon...because thats what I am doing.
