You just need to know the right answers to the questions. But maybe knowing the sheriff deputy on duty there may have helped a little.

Yes it is just like mine and it is about 18' ball to bumper. Does it have the aluminum or fiberglass bumper?

I already ran the VIN through a National database and it does not come up stolen, so that is good new.

Thanks Rhonda

Every state has a process for getting a new title. What exactly did your state officials tell you?

I see this:
How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in Colorado | DMV

They told me that I needed the original title owners information and a signature from them giving me consent to get a replacement title. I was told they have since passed away. From what I understand through my parents is that this camper has gone through several sales with no title attached to the sale in the State of Kansas. I have no clue who the original title owner is and with the Privacy Laws I am unable to get a name through my local DMV. I will see if the Police Department where I work will give me any information but I doubt it.

Be persistent. I was given an old motorcycle with no title and got lots of wrong information before I got the straight information and successfully titled it. Maybe you could call several different DMVs and police departments. Ask to talk to a supervisor. Get names of who you talk to, as they try harder when they know that it will come back to them if they give bad information.

Tom has some good info as usual. I've had the experience a couple times, when some form from a previous owner had to be signed and the whereabouts of that person were unknown, I signed their name and that resolved the problem. At one visit to DMV where I needed a signature, the clerks reply was, "I think that person is sitting outside on a park bench, go out there and get them to sign it." Like Tom says, ask the question to several different people and hope one of them has the right answer, it's worked for me more than once. Just need to find someone who will take the time to help.

I thought that I was the only one that did this stuff. It drives my DW crazy. I just say that it is far easier to get forgiveness than permission.

Sounds like there are other, easier ways, too, Glenn!

I guess those (two) of us that find that shocking are just behind the times.

Hey, the lady at DMV told me to do it, in a way that she wasn't directly saying it. I always seem to have some odd situation, not trying to do anything illegal, just the paperwork is screwed up. When I had a '76 pickup shipped to me from Arizona, with the original title from 1977 that was the size of a credit card, they couldn't find a picture of a AZ title that old in their books, so after much discussion let it go through. And you should see the big production I had when I bought our daughter a popup camper in Massachusetts and had to get it licensed in Connecticut for her. Had to take it to CT's DMV just for someone to look at the VIN number. Having 5 trailers currently registered, and 5 vehicles, I get plenty of experience with DMV.

I am with Bob when the run around gets to lengthy!

But wonder, can't you title as a (homemade) trailer? I think you can. Good Luck!

Finally Got Answers - Titles in CO

First of all I would like to say thanks to everyone for all your input. So after a dozen plus phone calls and over 4hrs on the phone, I finally got to the right person. They were able to check Kansas laws regarding trailers under 2000lbs. Found out that it is the option of the owner to get the trailer titled and/or registered.

They then told me what all I have to do to get a title in CO. Here are the steps for future reference for those wanting to title something in CO.

First I have to go find a facility that has a certified weight scale and are able to issue a Certified Weight Slip and pay a fee. Not too hard to do. Then I have to take that paperwork with the trailer to a CO State Patrol Office and have the VIN inspected and certified and then pay another fee. Once I have those, I then have to fill out 3 more forms and then take them to my County DMV (who could not give me the correct answers in the first place) to get a title issued, give me a temporary 60 day tag, pay the property taxes, sales tax, licensing fee, and the filing fees for a new title (which takes 30-60 days). OMG! Sometimes you just have to wonder why all the paperwork and why you have to travel all over the world to get one simple thing done.
