What do you make of this? Is export to Canada the same as export to Australia?

i think i read that an "I" (letter) if used in the vin is actually a 1 (number). could that be the case in this trailer?

We purchased our 64 ambassador with out a title in californa in but we live in Nevada. I tried finding the title the old fashion way by finding the old owners of the trailer. Once we ran into about 10 dead ends. I contacted a title or lean specialist. I cost $400 ($200 to start paper work. $200 once I got the title.) and about 2 months later I had the title in my hand. You should look for someone that does this in your area that does this sort of work. Save your self a lot of time and hassle. Hope this helps.

Hi Heliguy,
I'm in Australia so it's not possible to find someone here to do it. Do you have the details of the company who searched yours?

Searched google for a while and this is the best I could come up with. Give them a call and see if they can help. I have not used them before. Not even sure they do trailer liens. But it's worth a shot.
Best of luck.

Hi,
I've been told from 2 shippers that trailers are not required to have a title for export. So I'm just trying to confirm/clarify that and haven't looked into the title any further. Thanks for checking! Will update when I know more

Good news!! Because trailers are not self propelled vehicles, they are exempt from the export requirements of self propelled vehicles (title, smog testing etc). So, I can get the shipping process underway with no further delay. I was hoping to order a new zipdee awning to ship with the trailer, but the price was a lot more than I expected! Nearly $2,500!! That's not much less than I paid for the trailer! So, needless to say, I'm holding off for now, and will look at getting one down the track. Obviously I'll be hit with the extra shipping, but it's better than making a rush decision on the fabric choice etc and delaying the shipment for another 4+ weeks.
Amy
