My thought also.. there are re-manufactured trailers and motor home on the road today that were junk just a short time ago.. bought a top for a E250 years ago, went to the factory, junk vans of all makes in one side.. beautiful Van-Campers out the other with zero odometers and new VINs...

Simple answer. I googled cert of destruction in florida. It is issued for a water damaged vehicle. Cannot be titled or registered in florida. Can be exported or parted out. Do not know how Ga will handle it.. Also a dealer has to notify the buyer of this. Not the same as a salvage title a cert of des means the vehicle must be destroyed. Hope i am wrong on this.

There is always a way to get it done so you're not stuck in the mud, this is only one.

I think in this case it was filed in florida. The state may have it on record.

In NC a "certificate of destruction" means just that, must be destroyed, cannot be titled. I have bought a few over the years and never had any luck getting them titled ever again. We have Salvage titles but this is one step past that, the vehicle is considered 'junk'.

FWIW - VA has certs of destruction as well - I bought a corvette that hit a deer and only needed a windshield - no idea why it must be destroyed.

Go through Staab Agency to have it registered in Maine. You don't need to be a resident, and you can do it through the mail. They'll send you a Maine registration and plate which you can then use to register the trailer in your state. All they need is a notarized bill of sale, which would presumably not mention the Certificate of Destruction. I did this twice with old trailers I purchased in NYS that had no paperwork. In both cases I was able to use the Maine registration to import the trailer to Canada and register it here.

I'd be curious to see if this works, a friend tried this once and the title came back in NC as "certificate of destruction", apparently all title data is shared between states.

cool !

[QUOTE=RoamingHappy;2059511]Asking for help or advice from people with experience.

I messed up. I bought a 1989 25' Excella from wholesale auction.
Its in great shape! Nothing wrong with it!!

But it has a Certificate of Destruction from Florida. Cant understand why the insurance company did that.

No flood damage.
No collision damage.
No bio-hazard.
Just a couple of very minor scratches and the clear coat is faded on top.

But, now Im stuck. I live in Georgia. In Georgia, I cant get it registered.
  • Georgia: Anything newer than 1985 must be titled
  • Georgia: having it inspected won't help.

Where can I get a similar frame to transfer the body?

What can I do? I'd like to keep it and use it. " Quote]

Cool deal. I like small fixer uppers. I lose focus quick, so small jobs are best : )
I like the looks of your new to you trailer
Good luck !
