VINs are not assigned by the DMV they are assigned by the manufacturer.

Meghan, don't panic or make yourself sick, slow down. Go to a different DMV, as has been suggested. If that doesn't work make calls to a bunch of them from the comfort of your own home. Keep track of who you are talking to, their name and contact numbers. Make it a game, keep talking to people till you get the answer you want. Be nice, play the dumb blonde. It works for me all the time...except now I play the little old gray haired lady.

Here's a thought(from a Calif DMV employee): Buy a wrecked trailer-get it registered, then transfer the VIN to the your trailer and scrap(as in pieces) the wrecked one. I've seen it work too.

The state of IL folks registered our previously-owned Burro as homemade, not us, so it is done on these trailers in some places, even by the DMV folks..

Well everyone...I am at it again this morning. I woke stressing about this and my head is killing me. I spent the morning writing a letter to my Aunt in the DMV to see if she can help me ( she did steer me in the right direction before). I think I will be calling DMV and try to find one that gives me the correct answer. They all tend to give me the same phone numbers that lead to dead ends though. I appreciate all your feedback and will be trying all things mentioned while still trying to find that elusive VIN stamp. Can we put out an APB for all Play Pac owners to photograph theirs so I know where it is????
Wish me luck

When I first got my Sprinter Van and went to get it on the road I ran into problems with the inspections process here in Missouri.
For some reason we have both a Safety and Emissions inspection required to get plates and they happen at different locations?

Trying to get the Emissions inspection I was told I was over the Weight Threshold somehow,Well the Sprinter was not me.and that I was exempt from needing the inspection.

So I went to a DMV office and they told me I needed an exemption certificate. So I went back to the inspection station,got a certificate that they of course had not given me before?

Went back to DMV and I bet you know what happens?

Long story short,I left and went to a different DMV office and threw the whole thing at them.
They asked if I had by any chance been to a certain other DMV office already and mentioned the one I had started at?
Evidently the woman running that 1st office is notorious for causing headaches and has her own way of interpreting the rules.

I paid my money and walked out with my new plates,10 minutes tops.

What I am getting at is maybe the same kind of thing has you in its grip?
The DMV people here have absolute job security and some seem to have no concern at all for the people they are paid to serve who also are the ones who pay them really.

Good Luck
Ed

Maybe you better wait to hear from you aunt before you make phone calls.

New vin location for Play PAC!!!

Meghan! No time for photos or any of that jazz - I have about 1/10 of one bar here on my phone (cape blanco Oregon)! So I was inspecting the plY PAC this morning and found ANOTHER location with the VIN!!!! It's right under the left (driver's side) rear brake light on the back of the PP. It's stamped into the fiberglass. Go check it now! I hope this ends it all! Good luck! - paul
