William, some states don't title all trailers, in NY it's older than about 1970, so there is only a registration card, and some light weight trailers here don't get a title. Mass is another state with no title on some trailers I believe, so they use a bill of sale to transfer ownership. If you had a Maine registration and sold the trailer, it would be like any other trailer sold in Maine with no title. But keep trying to get that PA title if at all possible, good luck.

Bob; Thanks for that info, wish it was that way in PA. There should be a uniform terminal online nation wide that all states can trace titles w/o the hassle we all seem to have to a different extent.

Yes, I'll keep trying and keep posting until I do whatever ends up being done.

Thanks for your support. This forum is a great place to be part of.

I'm gonna talk more with my mechanic next week when I go for auto inspection. He is a very honest and knows what needs doing in most situations.

God bless, Bill & Family

This is what some folks do for getting a title for a Moped for the certain states that require them, even thought many states cannot and never have had titles for them....


Find someone, family or friends or friendly forum member, that lives in a state with a SUPER EASY title-ing process. Have them get the trailer titled for that state. You might have to "sell" the trailer to them with a bill of sale first. Then "buy" it back from them and transfer the title, VOILA.

I believe my Vt had the serial number stamped on all the window frames.

Well I'm not sure about selling and buying back. Seems complicated and long.

As for the numbers on window frames. Not sure what you mean? My window frames are only stamped with "U-Haul not to be sold" but no numbers.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

I'm still lookin ;o)

God Bless, Bill & Family

Abee,


It's not difficult and long, as you don't actually "sell" it then "buy" it back. The trailer is not moved, and no money exchanges hands. You just fill out the paper work as though it was sold to someone else, then titled, then bought back with a proper title.

As for me, I would just make a VIN plate that that matches the title # on file.

Why not just start by stealing a trailer?

Come on now, that is one heck of a jump to make!

It is very unreasonable and just plain insane that some of the laws out there make it either impossible or nearly impossible to properly title/register a legitimately owned and acquired vehicle... Without finding some crazy loopholes to jump through that the would never tell you about.

For example: I have 2 legitimate/legal mopeds here in Virginia. VA law does not require and WILL NOT even issue a title for a "moped". If I were to move to one of the many states that require a moped to be registered/titled, I'd be out of luck for the most part. Most states would not be able to provide me with a title or registration at all so I would be forced to either get rid of them or use some crazy loophole to get it done. And no, I wouldn't choose get rid of them because of the ridiculous red tape in my way.

Thanks Mary & Bob;
Yes we sure anxious to get on the road when we have some time, however summer is when I like to work on my buildings so the schedule will be tight until September at least. maybe with a little luck we can get away for a day or 2 just to get the feel of "Cramping". Thanks to all that followed my delim a with comments and a special thanks to Chris from U-Haul for letting me know he found another hidden place for those tags to be tucked away. It proved to be a winner location in my case. Thanks Chris...God bless, Bill & Family

Abee, Papa-t here. I'm the one that sold you the U-Haul. I just noticed the post and recognized it as the U-Haul I'd owned. I really hate you had all the trouble with the registration. As you know I had no problem getting it titled in N.C. from S.C. After only a week of ownership I sold it to you. I also faxed information to the PA Title Agency for you that showed the title was registered as a clean title through NCIC ( National Crime Information Center) like you ask me to. The stamping of a new VIN # was what I suggested when you said they needed a rubbed copy. This would have not been illegal due to you owned the camper and had in hand a notarized letter showing the transfer of ownership and a notarized legal title with a legal transfer of ownership. When I didn't hear anything else from you I assumed you had it all straightened out. However, a stamped VIN # on the frame would have been quick, simple and legal. Anyway, glad things worked out in the long run and now all is ok. Ted
