titled trailers

I frequent this site's want ads, Pennswoods, and Craig's list. What is it with people selling boats with trailers and they don't have a trailer title? For now, I'll keep my queeries limited to PA, although I see this in other states too. Some say " getting a title is easy". Well, It's NOT! If the trailer was ever titled that title needs to be produced, and the seller is required to sign it off in person. A bill of sale is NOT sufficient. and if it was never titled, a certificate of origin is necessary. I guess there's so much illegal title transferring that people regularly get away with it. Plus, the sellers appear to be using the trailer even though they have no title. How the heck do they even license the trailer?

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Re: titled trailers

Pa is INSANE with their trailer regs. Most guys with multiple toys just get one trailer titled and switch the plate around. I am not saying its right, but its common practice. In my experience, the seller did not have to sign off in person, but maybe that has changed. Some guys just title the trailer in another state where its easy, then switch to a Pa tag.
