I offered 50 because it may need tires, and all the hassel with the title. I cant move it until I title it. It is to far to tow to my house. Thanks for the info. This whole thing is a hassel but I think this could be ok if the systems are not to bad... so many ifs!!

I will ask him to take a picture of the tag maybe you guys can help me verify I have the right number. The whole deal is I am a single Mom with not a lot of $ and this is the only way, and a way I would enjoy, getting the trailer. I dont mind the work and we are going to set it down at a permanant site where I can rent it to pay most of its keep.

Ummm... compared to what I started with, the Rolls is in MINT condition! I wish... wow! If you don't snag it, I will! (just kidding)

Yeah... go to your local DMV... get a supervisor (not a low paid state window worker) and ask what they can do to help. I've found that asking, "Can you please help me" always makes anyone with power feel like it's time to use their power!
But, count on a few basic ideas. "Nothing works, or will work for long. For every bit of damage you see, there is a ton more and because you can't see it yet, it's 20 times more difficult to fix!"
I know you want the trailer, but unless you're really enabled... with skills, motivation, desire... and a lack of sanity like myself, really hesitate buying someone elses problems!
I don't want to "water down your cornflakes", but... you have quite a "job" there!

I live in NYS.I bought a vendor trailer from a seller in Pa who is one of the most honest and best sellers I have ever met on ebay.I bought it on a "bill of sale".Thru a search with the Pa DMV the last time it was titled was in 1999 in Ohio.(they where not supposed to tell me that,but I found someone on a phone call who wanted to help)I called Ohio DMV and they wouldn't tell me anything.The seller bought it from a old employer who moved away on a bill of sale for his cub scouts and decieded it won't work out for that purpose.Any chance of finding the title was gone forever.I called the NYS capital to talk to the people who approve titles directly.I told them that I didn't want a salvage title because I was going to invest money in it to remodel it.That is a very important part now!!!!.It took 8 MONTHS,and a inpection to see if it had any stolden parts,but I was finnally able to get a title as a 2006 custom trailer.During the inspection they have every right to tear it apart and make you put it back together.They also have every right to impound the trailer on the spot.It has to be safe to drive too.All the safety equipment and tires must be in place and working.I almost didn't get it thru the inspection.I had to watch how I worded my answers to their questions.It took a total of 8 MONTHS to have the title in my hand.Two months to get the inspection and 6 MONTHS to get the title.Now some states don't require a title for trailers like Mich I think it was.

The moral of this situation,I swore I would NEVER buy anything without a title never again.

Gary

If your not going to put on the road, "fix up and rent", why do you need a title. Buy the TT get a bill of sale than find a dealer that can put on tempory plate and pull to your property where you can set it up.

Because states laws are changing and in PA soon you will need to have it titled even in a campground.

Ok... so you have the horsepower to get done what has to be done... next comes desire, and the patience for that. I'd start making a list of what is MAJOR wrong... figure out the estimated hours then multiply by 100... because that's how it works out for me! ... make sure your therapist has 2 open extra slots a week... and then "Go for it"

Ummm Wow! I found them. Did I mention "mine" was built by the Amish?
You are amazing!
The guy is now like: I have a guy that wants to pick it up and just take it away. apparently a bill of sale and tire size is a bit of a hassle to him at the moment. I offered him 50 and feel like any more is to much. Somethng is out there for me. How did you get yours? Oh and I think it is VERY appropriate to have a trailer shower once it is done so you can have all kinds of cool things!! We should start a new thing!

Yeah... I've been having thoughts of doing this fulltime... rebuilds.

If he won't issue you a bill of sale... walk away!

There really isn't enough room for the shower and keep the big kitchen and full size bed. The unit is only 16' (13-1/2" not counting the tailboot and pushed out nose).

I want to keep this somewhat small, and light so I can afford to tow it... It's just me and a little 13 lb Jack Russell, ya know!
