David, the problem with asking a Canadian for paper work showing the trailer is "clear titled" will more often result in a blank stare or a what do you mean question in return? Its not a term used or heard here often and paper work showing clear title is not something that is normally issued here.

What we have instead is two things:
1) If the trailer is registered to the party selling it they will have registration papers from the province it is register to them in and that paper work will have a section on it where they sign it over to the purchaser. If they do not have the Registration papers for the trailer I would stay well clear of it as you will have a real tough time registering it anywhere (even in Canada).

2) Most provinces have what we call a Chattel Mortgage register or Manitoba and Ontario I believe the trailer would may fall under what they call a Personal Property register. So if the person has a loan and the trailer, car or boat or what ever that has been purchased and it has been used as the chattel against the loan it will be registered. If the the trailer has not been used as chattel for the loan then it will not appear in the register and would be considered as what those in the US would call Free Title. A search of the data base of Chattel Mortgages or Personal Property can be done using the trailers serial number and the cost in most provinces is normally under $25. A lot of people here dont seem to know they can do it themselves often on line & print off the search result for the purchaser. But I assure you anytime you trade in a car or boat or trailer at a dealer they will in fact do such a search. Here is the link to the online Manitoba Personal Property data base search. A search can be done using the serial number only for $12.

I know the main issue here is the payment method, but it occurs to me to ask:

Since you can't pick it up yourself, how are you getting possession of it? Is some third party delivering it, and if so is there any possibility that they could handle the financial end, too?

Francesca, I had put the trailer out for bids on Uship.com.

Unfortunately for me, the owner got cold feet about dealing with someone outside of Canada and put the kabosh on the sale this morning, despite having agreed on a price and a deposit. The search continues.

Just want to say thank you to everyone who offered their assistance with the purchase. The amount of support from people on the forum who were willing to help out with this transaction was unreal. This is a really impressive online community and I'm excited to be a part of it.

Ben
