5th Wheel Manufacturer Hunt

I recently purchased a 32' 1978 TRNA 5th Wheel trailer. I submitted the old title to my home state, but now they are requesting more information about the make. I cannot find any ID sticker and/or plate, there is only the VIN number on the gooseneck. (which matches the VIN on the title)

Has anyone out there ever heard of TRNA and if so, can you be of any help in finding the ID tag or whatever else might identify the unit? Or any information about the manufacturer. (I assume long out of business)

UPDATE: I finally was able to contact the DMV and they need to know what TRNA stands for, they don't have that in their database, so of anyone knows the real name of TRNA, that would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Never heard of TRNA as an RV manufacturer. But that doesn't mean there never was a company called TRNA. Maybe someone else will come along.

Is it an RV, horse trailer, utility trailer????

The trailer is an RV camping trailer. It turns out that TRNA stands for Trans America. The company went out of business in 1979. It took the DMV a few days but they actually found it, and the title is now being processed. Thanks to all who read and thought about this.
