Trailer title error !

Here is one so good you could not make it up. I went today to register a boat trailer I recently bought used. The seller had already been there and did all of his part, the notary had the clean Pa title there. When she processed, an error came up stating the VIN was incorrect. She asked if I could go home and verify the number, a one hour round trip, which I did. When I returned she called the Penndot Rep. There reply was, Its a case of Fast Fingers . This is what they call it when somewhere in the past someone at Penndot types the wrong number, or an incorrect sequence. Bottom line, instead of an instant transfer, I wait five weeks for it to be corrected and returned by mail. Gotta love bureaucracy !

Re: Trailer title error !

oh I feel your pain..i bought a boat with and the seller put the wrong title with the wrong boat and after i paid the notary like 150 bucks, i noticed title had wrong pa reg number on it and it said i owned a 1970 boat not a 1990. after all that i had to send photo of boat vin and pay another $18 fee to re title or register and they had to call the other boat owner cause he had the wrong reg on his boat. this took about 2 months to figure out and many calls to harrisburg.

Re: Trailer title error !

I've had my boat and trailer since 1986 and when the title, reg. card came with the tags for the trailer it has the correct serial # but wrong manufacturer! I went back to the dealership and was told to worry about it if I ever sell it!!

Re: Trailer title error !

My boat trailer is a 1993, so I'm not sure of the year this happened. One year I did not get me renewal information for my boat trailer. I called PennDOT and was told that my registration had been given to another boat trailer owner who moved a NJ trailer to PA. I asked how that could be and they said it had the same serial number, so they gave the registration number to the new applicant. I sent photos, notarized statements and tracings of the serial number on my trailer - all to no avail. Finally got my state rep involved and got my tags. What a nightmare that was.

Re: Trailer title error !

Just got this one back, so 4 weeks ! I have heard of that G, where somebody writes down your trailer numbers then registers theirs in another state with your numbers. I am also having an issue know with powering a boat that had not been regisitered for years. Though the PA reg stickers are on it, I can't power it until I tell them the old owners name, and I don't know who it was. I asked the gal on the phone to tell me the guys name and I will track him down, no sir, we can't do that ! Gotta love Pa !
