It seems to me that your biggest hurdle at the moment is title-related. Since as others have pointed out the manufacturer would be named on the title, can we assume that you didn't get one?

Registration etc. can be a real problem in that scenario.
Nope, it was given to these people and they just bought a new one and gave it to us!

Ugh...is that a tough deal for us? To get one?

wow -that looks like someone had a tractor or something to move it into that corner...
be careful pulling it out as it will swing and hit the fence, etc....

will be fun to clean up and lubricate and ... and... !!!
but bet the critters that look like they are living under it will not be happy
be careful, but enjoy !
I will scour it when I get it on the property...only my hubby has seen it and it was filled with junk and now empty...so we'll be able to really look soon...
It's supposed to be in pretty good shape...needed a hub and they ordered it but it's the wrong one so we are getting the right one and it's road worthy to at least get here.
It's got stuff on the other side, fence is a good ways away...thank god.
DON'T talk about critters under it!!!! nooooo

It can be very difficult, depending on which State you're in. In New York, for example, it's well-nigh impossible to register a paperless vehicle of any kind.

In some States it's easier...


It sounds like you haven't picked it up yet, so you're still in contact with the folks you're getting it from. Hopefully they can help you track back to whoever DOES have the title or remembers having been the last legal owner. Even registration papers would be better than nothing- whoever's on that registration can probably release interest/apply for new Title (in your name) at the same time.

If it's roadworthy, doesn't it have a plate on it? That should have been issued to SOMEBODY...

Yep, that was another one I thought about. But I remember Aljo as having three color lines instead of two

Before you do any work on the rig get the title/registration figured out!!

You could spend a bunch of $$ fixing it up and find you can't get a title/registration/license for it!

Check in the door jam for an ID plate. Another place to check is on the trailer tongue. Often Serial # is stamped in the steel.

Almost looks like the Excel trailer my folks had when I was growing up.
