How important is a trailer title?

I found a trailer but they are selling it without a title.... what does that mean should I get pulled over while pulling it..... besides the obvious it might be stolen.... and would I have to get a title??

In SC, as an example, no title is necessary but that also means you can't get a tag. It also means that it is difficult to sell it to a state that requires trailers to have tags.

In some states, you might not be able to register it without a title. Check before you buy.

Why not call your local / state license office and ask them how to handle it?

That would be tooo easy..... ;)

I will call them, but I thought maybe someone could shed some light on it for me before I call and possibly make myself sound less than intelligent.....

In my state you need a title to get the trailer registered and make it street legal. Also, if they *do* actually have the title they can still claim that the trailer is theirs. And unless you have a bill of sale that can hold up in court then they'll win.

You're in CO right?

Yes, you have to have a license and you can apply to get one for an untitled trailer but it's going to be a pain and there's also the possibility the trailer was stolen at some point (if it's a titled trailer and the title is missing).

Yes, getting a new title (which you need to register it) can be a real pain. To avoid multiple trips to the DMV and waiting in line forever, the best advice is to call the DMV (or email them), explain the situation, make sure that you have every document you'll need, and have them tell you all the fees (and payment types they accept) involved before you bother to go stand in line.

It really depends on state. Here in Florida... any trailer over 2000 lbs requires a title to have tagged and registered.
You always need a bill of sale or the registration signed over.
