All I have is the title. Anyone out there ever run into this problem?

I never part with cash until I see the trailer and the CLEAR title together. No deals with cash now and title later. There's always the risk of buying a stolen trailer or that the seller has title liens that can not be satisfied.

Your DMV will answer your title transfer question on the phone. It's probably clear title and a notarized bill of sale.

Do you have posession of the trailer and the clear title??

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Hi there, 73Argosy.

I think that trailer has the air of one that has been meticulously cared for and treated very well. Just as an aside, the stripping and polishing that has been done to your trailer (assuming you sorted things out and bought it) runs about $100 a foot.

All the best luck with it!

Well after spending a whole day in the Twin Cities at the port authority with customs agents I finally was able to get things straightened out. If the last person to come and help me had been the first person I would have been done in 30-45 minutes instead of my whole day. Basically never by from a Canadian unless he has a import paper to the U.S.A. or things turn ugly. If he has it make sure that he and you at least right up some kind of bill of sale and fax that to the Canadian Authority's so that you can get a paper from them saying that it is not stolen etc. Thanks again for everyones help.
