My dad and I learned a lesson this past week when we bought a trailer for my Carolina Skiff for a very good price. It was this price because it did not have a title. I went to register it without the VIN (id) number because it was faded away on the trailer, thinking DMV would cut me some slack. Well it turns out there is no way that a vehicle can receive a title without this number. So now I have a trailer that we cannot use except just around the neighborhood.
