I had a similar issue when I bought a boat and after the PO moved, I discovered the trailer was titled (rather rare here in Mississippi). I was able to get a Title Bond from a local insurance company. With this I was able to get a clear title. The bottom line was I had to prove to the Bond company I had purchased the unit then they bonded it.

Has your DMV verified the current title is in the PO's name and has no liens?

I hope that the thief who steals my trailer has to do more than find a compliant clerk at some DMV to get a title for the danged thing.

Since you have made improvements to the TT, I would think that you could go the route of a mechanics lien and abandoned property to get a title.

Hi all,
To keep you posted. It is now December 10 and I got a lawyer to send a registered letter to the seller. The seller refused the letter. I also found someone nice at DMV and they gave me a form for a duplicate title, but it needs to be signed by the seller, who won't respond to me. It seems like the service mentioned above is the last resort.

Prior to 1972, NYS was a Transferable Registration state. Once you own the trailer for a year, you can fill out a form and state lost / no paperwork and get another transferable registration. It just takes time. Does the DMV know it is a 1966 trailer?

how big are the worms crawling out of the can??

As a resident of ca. I would suggest you go to dmv and tell them the trailer was abandoned on your property. There is a process for you to become the "owner" this way. But by now they probably have a case file going on it.

I've got 3 airstream products all purchased from private parties here in ca. At the time I forked over the $$ I got the title in my hand with the keys.

It's a shame people are so trusting, now a transfer of wealth with an attorney , my oh my.

another reason why everyone should be born with a fully automatic weapon.

Todays update. This is my lucky day. I went to DMV again and the person that helped me said "no problem, we will just say that the title is lost and you get a new one. Do you want to do this now?" . "YES", I said.
So, 3 visits to DMV, 3 stories:
1- call the police and get a lawyer
2- apply for a new title but the seller has to sign
3- apply for a new title and the seller does not need to sign.

The lesson learned is do not give up. Rules are only rigid in someone's mind.
Thank you all for the advices. This is a great forum full of wonderful people.
Cris

When dealing with the Ca DMV I have often found it useful to go to a different clerk or office if I don't get the results I want. They often don't know their own regulations and have too much ego to admit it. IMHO.
I'm glad you got it all sorted out to your satisfaction.
Dave

I know of an early 60s trailor that I'd love to aquire but the fellow that owned it passed away and the paperwork is gone. The park owner/operator wants to sell it but does not have the paper work. It was last registered in another state (to complecate the issue). I would not touch it with a 15' pole. My advice is get hold of the person who owned it and get the correct papers. If not get your money back even if it costs you somthing. This may be the dumb way of doing it but its the best I got.

When you got the new title, it was in your name? How does that work?
It sounds like anyone can get title to something if they find the right clerk at the DMV.

Here is the process as I understand it: You sign an affidavit stating that you have purchased it and are the legal owner, providing any documentation that you have. You get the title in your name. If you perjure yourself, you go to jail.
