I think I'd try doing a google search on just the vin number. Just type the # in only. Nothing else.

I'd do the same with the license number.

And then, of course, on Monday just call the DMV and ask them.

What are looking at doing with it? Take the vin and plate numbers to the motor vehicle office to find the name of the last registered owner. It may have changed hands since without ever being re registered. You may have to have it declared abandoned so you can dispose of the carcass.
I ran into this scenario on a car I was looking at buying. I contacted the registered owner, she had sold the vehicle some years before. The buyer signed the transfers but never registered it so I had to forget about it.

When you "got" the property, was the trailer mentioned on the bill of sale or property description?

I'll bet it would burn real well if it were struck by lightning.
