Stamp the serial number on the tongue frame rail, a side rail and it's a good idea to stamp the serial number on a rear frame rail under the trailer just in case your trailer gits stolen at some time. Maybe the thief will not notice that hidden serial number stamped on your rear frame rail under the trailer.
That stamped serial number under the trailer makes for easy identification if stolen and recovered as the thief may have already ground off the easily seen serial number stamped on the tongue frame rail or your foil ID tag but never found the stamped serial number under the rear frame.
Remember it's YOUR TRAILER and you can stamp whatever you want on it!
That's what I would do and what I have done on my vintage trailers.
My Daughter had a very similar situation and that’s what I advised her to do and she did. Now she has a trailer with a serial number, Stamped two places And those numbers match her current title
. There would be no way to prove that this trailer was not the number she says it is. She has an original owners title
but for day to day use, this will do. Here’s is a 1974. Not
Many DOT inspectors on duty now that were working 46 years ago. Or people that can verify exact stamping was consistent.
Who stamped that trailer? I do not know! Here’s my title
