Congrats, Meghan!!! I'm soooo relieved for you. There's nothing like frustration and stress to make the hair gray and the stomach churn. I agree with Ed about the DMV. We have Sideshow Bob working at ours... looks and personality!

Paul,

How come I never noticed that? (Paul just bought the Play Pac from me!). You must really be checking that thing out, inch by inch. Sure hope you had a great time. Also, thanks for the wine, I'm sitting at the computer, having some now.

How cool you could help out with this!

Congratutlation Megan!

Former Play Pac owner, now I've moved (up?) to a fiberglass RV, a 1984 Toyota Sunrader. It's a shame that the 97 HP, 20mpg motorhome couldn't pull the Play Pac, they'd have looked so cool together

Steve

just back from our EPIC trip up north along the west coast!

Meghan ... i was so unnerved by your experience since with my two earlier U Hauls, i had the same problem with our DMV. the first one i drove 8 hours to Riverside and the creep said he had the title in a safe. when i got there 'oops, cant seem to find it.' but he assured me he would sign off on a lost title form. its easy to say i should have turned around, but when you just blew $150 on gas, took a day off and rented a truck ... so he left town, turned off his phone, and never sent me the paperwork. ugh. second one was shipped from a guy who never had the title all 15 years he owned it and they didn't require a title back then in NY or whatever ...

both occasions the folks at DMV were fairly unsympathetic and even a bit mean-spirited. even gloating with a 'looks-like-someone-wont-be-getting-a-title-for-their-new-expensive-paperweight' vibe. i kept going back and figured eventually their ineptitude would sway to my favor - and it did on both occasions. i got them both titled but was left frazzled.

so i really felt for you Meghan and once we got our new Play Pac to the campground, i crawled all over the thing! front to back and top to bottom hoping beyond hope there might be another VIN location - et viola - i found that second VIN location! i jumped in the truck and started driving trying to find a signal so i could send the good news.

Steve, glad to hear you are enjoying the wine - i'll bet not half as much as we are enjoying the Play Pac! but i dont want to hijack this thread, so i'll start a new one for our fellow Play Pac(ers) once i download our trip photos.

best of luck at the DMV Meghan. i cant wait to hear your victory story about triumphantly walking into the DMV and showing them your VIN.

That's how it was done here in CO, too. My Scamp has a "homemade trailer" vin #.

Do you know where I could get a little sucker like that? I'd like to add the assigned VIN I have to my trailer.

Paul,
I have been telling everyone in my life my story. I always say "there is this amazing person all the way out on the west coast who went out of his way (on his vacation!) to find the VIN then went out of his way to get the information to me. I am so thankful to him!"
I cant tell you how much I appreciate what you did and it is so heartening to see people that that actually care about other people...whether they know them or not.
I am still in DMV limbo...but that is better than in DMV ...jail...with no answers from the powers that be. Yesterday we parked 1/2 mile away, then had to walk around in circles, then run down the sidewalk to get to the DMV before they closed at a nice early summer hours closing time of 3:45. Only to find out the dmv we were at didnt have plates. So first thing this morning I am going to my local dmv ( oh please dont let me get the mean gloating woman that made me cry the other day!!) and I will let you know my progress. I believe I will come back with plates in my hand...this is maybe the 5th time I thought this, so lets hope this time its for real!
Thank You so much Paul! I cant wait to see pics ...if you arent too busy camping that is!!!

YEEEHAWWWW!!!! super-mega-congrats Meghan ... we all know you worked very hard to get this! now you can roll down the road knowing this baby is yours and yours only!

i am happy to have helped - i felt your pain and know that any of the good folks in this little community of ours would have done the same in a heartbeat if they had found it too. its what set this special place apart from the rest!

now you can focus your energy on more constructive endeavors - all of the fun things you will do to your Play Pac! most important is to just get out there and enjoy this beautiful country of ours.

all the very best Meghan - happy camping and we will definitely be in touch!
-Paul
