When you get done with all this, you should consider sending a copy of this thread to someone in authority in Calif, plus maybe a newspaper. Maybe it will get easier for someone else.
Good idea. Today I called again, to find out about the need for a signature or not. The nice woman I talked to said yes, now that there was a discrepancy in the VIN
plate and the title
, sign the form. Then she said, "I don't know why they've been giving you so much trouble as we can take up to three errors in the number."
I photographed the back of the trailer with the faded Campster
logo and the VIN
plate and Washington License
plate and a closeup of the VIN
plate, and will send that along with all three VIN verification forms back to the DMV.
