The trailer is definitely a 1962 Overlander, built in CA

Unfortunately, people steal Airstreams too.

Best answer when a stolen trailer is sold, is that no paper work exists.

But, in this case, the year was misrepresented as well.

Ah, if it wasn't for those full moons and Mondays.

6204 means made in the 4th week of 1962, not 64 as I posted earlier.

Sorry.

Andy

I am slowly finding out I may be able to get a title, but can the seller legally sell it to me without proof of ownership?

I think I would ask the local DMV or the police department.

I did contact my local DMV. They told me "in theory" he has to show proof of ownership to legally sell it. In Florida a title is the only way to do that. He did disclose there was no title available in the auction, yet I had no idea the problems that creates until I had bought it. What I am trying to figure out is if I have any legal recourse to refuse to buy even though he revealed there was no title.

I would go by the fact it was sold as a 67 and in fact was a 62 if you want to avoid this hassle. But would like to know what the others here think here. Add to the fact he did not disclose other damage on the unit. Along with the priced being based on a more complete unit. Being 45 years old it would not be perfect, but he should have mentioned the missing window and the missing vent along water damage from the missing vents and window. The attached picture shows just the water damage to the bench and matress that your seller sent me. No telling what other undisclosed damage is there. Anyone else want to chime in on the issue.

Hi BigArt,
If the unit was misrepresented, you may be able to get out of the sale. Has money changed hands? How much? What is the sellers feedback? If he's been legit in past auctions, he may want to preserve his feedback rating and will work with you.
As for the title, I have used Broadway Title in Georgia (ads in Hemmings) to procure a title for a 60's Airstream that I bought several years ago. You will need a bill of sale. They then go to a state that only needs the bill of sale and they are able to get a title from that state which you then take to your local DMV to get titled in your state. If the trailer is/has been stolen (especially if registered at a prior time in your state), it may come back as such when doing all this title work - maybe not. Mine had no issues at the time.
Keep us posted on what's happening and Good Luck either way you proceed.
George
