registration and selling a trailer

3 posts in this topic

I have an old trailer that I want to sell but I have no idea where the paperwork for the registration is. It has the permanent sticker on the tounge. Can I just write the buyer a bill of sale and have them take that to the DMV? Anybody gone through this before? Thanks.

Take the sticker number to the DMV. They can look up anything registered to you by using your DL number. You can get a form to transfer the title.

Its surprising how lenient the DMV is with transferring ownership/registration of trailers and recreational vehicles. blush.gif

With a trailer, all you'll need is the plate # or the sticker #. It should have the lifetime trailer tongue sticker assuming the registration is current. If it still has plates, they'll need to pay for the lifetime license.

The buyer will have to pay sales tax on the trailer when they go to the DMV to register it. Seller is "supposed" to sign something as well.

If you want to be proactive, go down to the DMV and tell them you have a trailer you are selling and they should provide you with all the details.

Simple Bill of Sale is a good idea as well.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
