In Idaho it was easy. I bought a trailer from a guy on Craigslist who moved away. A year later when I went to register it I told the DMV lady the story. She wanted the owners name, I didn't have it. Phone number, didn't have that. Address, couldn't remember it. Finally, she asked what I paid for it. I told her. She charged me sales tax and gave me a new registration. Problem solved.

Just make yourself a cardboard sign that says lost plate. That ought to get you buy for a couple of years.

I am an American Whitewater member. One of 6300. There are an estimated 100000 paddlers in the U S. If you are not a member you should join. AW is fighting for our rivers everyday and could use some help.

My understanding is plates go with the owner, not the vehicle, in that case give those back. If the trailer has a VIN, it has a title. If no VIN, different jurisdictions have different method of addressing this, call your local law enforcement and they should talk you through it.

You got it right. The easiest thing to do is to have your buddy get a replacement title sent to him and then just have him sign it over. There are other ways to do it, but they aren't as easy. Send me a PM if there are any other problems and I might have some suggestions.

It's only a problem if the trailer was reported stolen. Back in the day you could just tell the Person at the Dmv that you built a trailer and they'd send you a title but know you have to have it inspected. No big deal.

Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.
