Hi! I just bought a play pac

I haven't managed to get It to my home yet due to flat tires , no title and having been in a barn for 15 years. I am sure I will be back here often to bet advice, because I don't know a thing about it. Aside from the play PAC I have my old 14' Coleman cadet c class that I think I will be selling to finance repairs to the play PAC. feel free to send me any words is advice!!!

No title BECAREFUL
A word of caution --> Don't do any remodeling until you get the title.

There have been several discussions about obtaining titles on this site, so do a little searching for various advice. Certainly, you will want to check with your DMV to see what they require for your state. If the trailer has old license plates attached, this might give them the info they need about any previous titles/licenses. You will probably also need the VIN off the trailer (located in various spots on different trailers, so you'll have to search for it!) and the bill of sale from the owner. Good luck and hope everything goes smoothly!

Congratulations on your latest acquisition. I had a 72-73 PlaPac and nearly wept when I sold it. The family outgrew it so we bought a Coleman Pop-Up. I don't think we had the Coleman for much more than two years before we sold that. I have a lot, I mean a LOT of fond memories of my old PlaPac and am looking forward to at least that many when I get my Scamp roadworthy.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

Michael

Hi, Meghan




Sounds like we've got another no-title-oh-well purchaser!
You may be in luck- or not.
In the state of New York (yours?), no title is issued for vehicles older than 1972.
If your trailer is older than that, you're home free!
If it's newer, park it in your yard.
Without the paperwork including a Certificate of Title, New York won't let the trailer on the road.
Next time, check with DMV before you buy.

Francesca

I can't imagine that there is no way to get the title. I am sure it happens all the time. Just looking for the best way to do it.

Searching for the title starts with the individual you bought the trailer from. You need to work backwards from there. It may be easy or can be a real PITA. The question to ask is who was the last titled owner?

And no, it doesn't happen all the time... occasionally for sure when it comes to molded trailers and members here on FiberglassRV. I know in Oregon, titles are necessary and I wouldn't purchase a trailer without one.

Best of luck

Don't compound the problem by losing track of the only person that you can PROVE to have had at least custody of the trailer. They've got your money and want to keep it- take them with you to the DMV.

That's your best legal option.

How will you get a title? I have been to DMV and the State Police...talked to about 15 people at both places. The answers I get are conflicting. When I am told to do one thing I go to the next step and I am told I absolutely cant do that and they have even threatened to take the camper away.
I think I posted pics in my profile.
I hope to go pick it up on Monday...if I make enough money this weekend to buy new tires...got my fingers crossed!!!
