You may want to pose your "lack of registration" question to the whole group in the General section of this site. There have been numerous posts about buying an unregistered trailer. The answer often is "check with your state DMV" first before buying.
Good luck!

I am overwhelmed by the response here! And the great stories! Monica, I moved from S.D. (Poway, actually) a year and a half ago (and counting...)! I accepted a company transfer because I wanted to have an affordable house with a big yard and to be closer to my parents in N. Mich. Indy is a great place to live, but it doesn't make up for the fantastic friends and family I left in SoCal. I would LOVE to hear how you are doing with the full-timing. Where are you going next?
I am communicating with the couple in Memphis about the burro (it does look nice) and with Ken about his UHaul. Now I have to make a choice!!? I exchanged e-mails with "Rags" about his green UHaul in colorado (it was still for sale last week at least). It looks exactly like what I want, but I would have to take time off work to go that far. Still thinking about it, though...
Kevin, I learned my lesson about the "Buy it now" thing. As soon as I entered the reserve ($3000), the buy it now option disappeared because ebay said the bidding had started. I didn't go up to the buy it now price because I didn't want to go so far to pick it up and at first I was not sure about the electrical system problems that were stated. After reading one of the threads about converters not working without a battery and a post about replacing the converter I decided I could fix it! Too late!

Thanks again for all the support, information and encouragement. This is a great group, I hope I can become a part. (Oh yes, and I WILL be driving down to 74 to try to spot the UHaul there! Of course it would be on the opposite corner from where I live!)
Hey Anne, I cannot wait to leave this state and become a Texan officially! I have lived here all my life, between El Centro and San Diego. The cost of living is going up even further with the doubling of the vehicle registration fees, thanks Arnold!!

My first stop will be the Imperial Valley desert, can camp for free for a couple of weeks and I have a friend down there who will show me all about my trailer. Then on to TX to Escapees, will be in TX for about a month to register my new vehicles (way cheap compared to CA), then to AL to see family I haven't seen in ten years. I have friends in OH, VA and NC, so I will head out and see them if they have the time, then to NorCal to see my older brother whom I haven't seen in nearly 15 yrs, but that is all the plans I have so far. Then I have the rest of the country to see as weather permits!

There is a 13 Burro for sale on eBay that came up today ends April 6th in Gurnee, IL if that is near you.
I'd be careful on the one in Memphis with no title. Could be OK, just make sure before you go there.

Thanks Greg, I noticed this but it is the same trailer that was listed last week as ENDING today, now re-listed with a starting price of $1500? It is in the referral forum (page 2) but I don't know how to link to another thread in this forum. Any idea why it was relisted on ebay?

Poway is a small town that USED to be quite rural until San Diego ballooned out to take over all the open space right up to the city limits! It is at the northeast city limits of SD. about 20 miles from SD center. There are mountains and lots of open space N and E of Poway. My house, where my son lives now, is on the east edge just across the road from the trail system that connects the ocean at Del Mar with the Salton Sea. It is a beautiful, but VERY expensive place to live. (Also was evacuated and many houses lost to fire in 2003 and 2007 mega-fires)

I am talking to the couple in Memphis about their 13' Burro. They have a bill of sale and just located the VIN, but no license or registration. If I bring this to Indy and get pulled over, will I be ticketed? Anyone know how to license a used trailer with only a bill of sale in IN?

I was surprised when I moved from CA to TN to find that TN does not require registration and a license for trailers. I carry a copy of the TN law pertaining to no license requirement in case I get stopped while out of state. You should have no trouble in obtaining registration and a license in a state that requires same if you follow their required proceedure and furnish the required information on a trailer bought in TN.

Anne,

Could be a number of reasons. Might have been pulled by eBay for putting wrong info in the ad, or someone won it and then won't pay for it.

The 13 that closed today for instance went for a good bit over what one would normally expect to pay for a 13 Burro which can happen in heat of the moment auctions. Then when they come down to earth later they realized they overpaid for it.

Do you know how to use the auto bidder so you don't get beat in the closing seconds? Of course, you have to know your limits and the value of the trailer before I would advise using the auto bidder.

There is also a 13 Burro that came up on eBay today in TX that is really sweet, although I know you are not wanting to go that far.

Of course as of five minutes ago you may want to consider going to Elk River, MN

That's some awning! Wonder what the wart is over the back window? Or is it a fingerprint on my monitor?

The one in Texas is just 30 miles from me. I have not looked at it, but it is on a used auto lot of some type. The buy now for 5,500.00 is a little steep. I sold one in as good as condition as this a few months ago, for half of that. If anyone needs assistance taking a look or needing someone to give it a good once over, that is interested, let me know. I could take a look at it for you. I am sure, since it is on a used auto lot, an offer on the spot would be much less than what they are wanting through ebay.
Weldon, East Texas

I've seen the pictures of that trailer in MN before, even the glimpse of the pole barn through the door. But where did I see it...
I sent an e-mail. I'll see what I hear.

I am watching those trailer on ebay, the one is TX is perfect, but too far. At least I will find out what people are willing to pay. Or think they are willing to pay!

The one in Elk River is mine.
it is listed here in the for sale section last fall.
the fridge needs a tuneup, and I have done some glass repair on the outside. It need to be repainted.
Also the custom mattress is now in our Casita.

I lowerd the price to sell quick because I need the money for the new motor in my Surburban.
If I don't sell the Burro by May I will be restoring it and of course selling it for much more money.
It has been at the last four get to gethers at Lanesburro MN.

Sorry, Jim. I should have recognized the woodwork (I honestly did not know where you lived, so the location was no hint to me.).

Jim Hovind offered to bring his pretty little Burro down to Indy for me this weekend!! WOO HOO! I appreciate his offer (and his concern for me to go for such a long trip on my first time towing).

I can't thank all of you enough for your support and your referrals. This is a great community and I hope to participate for a long time to come.

Let the modding begin!!
