My curiosity's up now!
I bought my trailer from an in-state person, and didn't have to have an inspection when transferring the Title
I'd had it for years before it even occurred to me to look for the VIN, which I'd always presumed would be stamped on the tongue.
The only number anywhere on my trailer is the plastic serial number plaque described above. It's riveted to the body- hardly what you'd call a "tamper proof" arrangement!
I actually looked at the title
to verify that this is in fact the VIN, and it is.
Now, I do NOT want you stumbling around out there in the dark anymore tonight, but tomorrow ...
Are all the numbers you've found the same, and do they match the VIN on your Title
