I traveled 6 hours from home Tuesday to go buy a trailer. It was suppose to be a like new trailer with no rust, new tires, all orginal paint and other stuff, and kept indoors. I paid x amount, girl gave me a bill of sale, helped hook up trailer and I was on my way. Less than 15 miles down the road, something happens and the trailer comes off the truck and goes into the ditch. Thank goodness no one was hurt and my truck wasn't even scaved. Even more so because I was on a four lane interstate! A crew of guys stops and pulls the trailer farther away from the road. The guy gives me his card and says he will buy the trailer from the girl. He assumed she would reimburse my money. He looked and said the trailers tounge was extremely rusted underneath and probably bent and caused the trailer to come off the ball. I called the girl and told her what happened and she said it was my problem now. I told her I'd accept half my money back and the guy would buy the trailer from her. Which was half of what I paid. She'd come out even, and I could go home. She refused that. Anyways after four hours on the side of the interstate, the guy buys the trailer from me and I start my six hour drive home. I'm extremely sad and pissed. I don't know what to do.
She didn't produce a title or registeration. All she gave me was a bill of sale that she signed and I didn't. I called my insurance and am waiting on a return call. I'm so confused as to what to do.
