We started thinking that it might be a good idea to get the ball rolling on transferring the title. We knew it might be tricky because 1) The title says it's a homemade trailer 2) The owner we bought the trailer from had never transferred the title to his name and 3) The trailer had two VIN #'s. Apparently, the PO couldn't find the one on the tongue of the trailer, so he had the state of Colorado issue a new one, which we found on a plaque on the tongue.

Luckily, the transfer went smoothly, We decided to leave it as a homemade trailer and deal with that later. Let's not tempt fate! Remember Sheldon at the DMV?
