Big trouble, like what? The DMV is being a pain in the rear. I had a similar problem with my CT-13. It had a title
with a VIN number, but the CT did not have a VIN number on it. The CT-13 has a metal plate on the left side with the trailer info on in including a sot for a VIN #, however the spot for the VIN number was blank. So when I went in for an inspection they would not title
it in Ohio. I purchased it in PA. So since the title had a VIN, I electrostensiled the VIN # from the title onto the plate and my problems went away. After you get your ducks back in order go to another DMV to get the title done. The DMV in many cases don't know their own rules, for instance when I went to get a historic license
plate on my CT the first DMV didn't think you could do that until they called another DMV to ask them, short story is yes you can get a historical license
plate on a trailer in Ohio.
