vin number

We considering buying a trillium 1300. I can not find a vin number on the tongue. It may have been painted over and I'd like an idea of where to start looking. Any help is appreciated.

virtually all trailers, the VIN should be stamped on a plate on the left side of the frame just forward of the trailer body.

Trillium VIN

As mentioned in an older thread here:

Trillium 13' VIN plate?

Trillium VINs (actually just a serial number) are found on a large plastic informational sticker located inside the closet door. Same is true for Bolers. Also, David Tilston has created a list of all known Trillium serial numbers. He updates the list as additional serial numbers are posted to his thread by owners. Here is his thread:

Serial numbers on a Trillium
I had a Trillium and concur with what you say, unfortunately, doors are often replaced over the years and lost.
If you have a clear title, then take the serial number and stamp it on the tongue using welder's stamps. Sand the area, stamp the numbers, then lightly paint over it with a rattle can.

Thanks

I want to thank you all for the help! Since there is no evidence of a number or missing plate on the tongue, I will assume it was on the closet door which has been replaced. Along with the last title, there are a couple of older state registration forms and all match. I will check the link and look into having it stamped on the tongue. Thanks again.

There is at least one seller on eBay that will provide an official looking VIN tag, and will even stamp the numbers on it for you.
