Lost title

Hey guys, I'm looking to sell my Airstream and I seem to have misplaced the title.
I live in PA but I purchased the Airstream in NJ. Does anyone know how I would go about getting a replacement title? Unfortunately I don't have the contact info of the guy I bought it from anymore either.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!

Assuming that the title is in your name contact the DMV on line or telephone and ask them for the procedure, In Texas this is all on line except that you have to appear in person at a regional DMV office and walk out the door with a new title. By Mail it takes 2 or three weeks.

presuming that you were titled and registered in Pennsylvania, here's a start -

I'm not an expert, but have had some experience with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in this area. The bottom line is, you need to go to a capable notary public that deals with titles and registration in your area. Most AAA offices are reasonably capable, if you're a member, although there are also many other private notaries available. The process will likely depend on whether you transferred the title and registration to your name at the time of purchase (and paid the sales tax). If so, getting a duplicate title will be a matter of filing the right form using the VIN and paying the fee. (That may even be able to be done online with a credit card.) If the title was signed over in NJ, but not yet transferred and registered to you in PA, the process may be arduous and might include running ads in the paper looking for the original owner, before proceeding through the "lost title" process. Some states require the title transfer be notarized at the time of sale. Pennsylvania is one of those states. Depending on whether NJ is a reciprocal state in this area with PA, could complicate things. PA may want the former owner present for the title transfer. (This is the situation I'm currently in for a small utility trailer; looking for the original owner (also a PA resident) to resign the title in front of a notary.) So, based on some limited experience, my opinion is to either find the title (which may still only be the starting point) or move to Maine.

Good luck and we hope a notary can help you through this,
Roy and Marie
