Hi sharene - The answer might vary if you are buying from a dealer vs. a private party. This is seat of the pants but I would say you are in good shape if:
1. The seller has the title. Is the title in his or her name? (not necessarily so if handling through a dealer)
2. Does the current title have a lien holder listed? The provider of any outstanding loan on the trailer is due their money before they give up their rights. The trailer itself could be the security behind the loan. Is the value of the trailer high enough that a loan is possible? The loaning bank usually exercises diligence to see that they are listed as a lien holder -- but this is a potential gap.
3. Does the title list more than one person as owner? Both would have to sign the trailer over to you. If it lists only one person and that person is married, under community property laws it might be wise to have their spouse also sign to turn over the title.

You might have to rely on your instincts at some point. Does the previous owner seem to have a stable presence in their community? Do they own their home?

Hi Sharene

Suggest you contact the WA State DMV and ask them. If they don't do this (for a fee I'm sure) you can at least ask them who does. Also, if you go to ICBC's website you might find that they can also do this for out of Province for a fee, based on an article I read in the paper in the last week or so.

Congratulations on your new purchase. Another Airstream moves into the Vancovuer area - it just keeps getting better all the time.

Post pictures when you can.
