Lady at California DMV:
"What does this Airstream weigh?"
Me: "It's on the Certificate of origin."
Lady: "How many axles does it have?"
Me: "Two axles as shown in this picture."
Lady: "Have you had it smogged yet and what size engine does it have?"
Me: "IT'S A TRAILER; IT DOESN'T HAVE AN ENGINE."
"You need to bring your trailer to this office for a physical VIN check verification."
Me: "Your parking lot is so small I barely found a place to park my Navigator; Where will I ever park my tow vehicle and trailer at 44' long?"
Superviser: "You have to bring it here."
Note: Form states that an officer of peace can do a VIN verification.
Me: Brought back VIN verification form signed by Lakewood Sheriff.
Superviser: "Who verified this VIN?"
Me: "A Lakewood Sheriff."
Superviser: "He didn't fill out this section in the middle of the page."
Me: "The section in the middle of the page is for engine identification
for motorhomes, THIS IS A TRAILER, IT DOESN'T HAVE AN ENGINE."
