Getting a Title for a Trailer
So can you get a title for a trailer as a vehicle title? Well, yes you can, but the tricky part to a trailer is making sure that the trailer actually has a valid VIN number or serial number. Many times the problem with a trailer is there wasn’t a proper serial number created for that trailer. If it was a homemade trailer or kind of a backyard trailer, it may not have a VD number. Or, if it was originally manufactured with the VIN number, sometimes that serial number disappears because it’s attached to the frame or attached to the tongue or the hitch and it either gets rusted or falls off or it was a sticker and it falls off altogether.
