Title and registration

States issue titles, and rules vary. Most do issues titles for small travel trailers, but a few don’t. Check the owner’s state motor vehicle website.

It appears that you will be required to title the trailer but not to register it.
See Chapter 3 – Trailers – 3-1 (page 112):
https://dmv.nebraska.gov/sites/dmv.n.../RegManual.pdf

So if the trailer was owned in Nebraska then it probably had a title or was in violation. However perhaps it was from a state that did not require or offer titles for the trailer. I would think that with proper paperwork, bill of sale, etc. you would be able to get a title but you would have talk with your DMV office about that. You might need to get a bonded title. It is all spelled out in the Titling Manual but its 271 pages so talking with DMV might be better.

Since NE has titles, then your friend possibly had one at one time. Replacing a lost title is easy in most states, but he has to be there. Perhaps you could offer to take him there. You’ll need the VIN, which is usually on the tongue somewhere.

I had to work gently with my mother when she wanted to gift us her van camper a few years ago. She insisted she never had a title, but of course at 92 her memory wasn’t what it once was.

If your friend acquired it from someone else and never titled it, then it’s going to get more complicated (and expensive), as Gordon says, possibly requiring a bonded title.

I hope you at least got a "bill of sale" from your friend. I wish you well in resolving this and now in particular as we all meet the challenges being set before us.
