CA DMV registration question...

Just picked up a travel trailer, a '72 Airstream Ambassador. It hadn't been registered since '08 according to the tags, and was purchased under lien sale from a tow yard. The DMV stuck me with back-reg for the past couple of years, and someone said they shouldn't be able to do that.

Does anyone have any experience with buying unregistered vehicles / trailers in CA that knows whether I should've been charged or not?

Find an attorney specializing in vehicle registration. Any other opinions would be worthless or dangerous financially.
