Im considering buying a boat, but the trailer that it comes with doesn't have a title. Should I jump ship or is it possible to get the trailer titled.

A lot of states don't even require a boat/utility trailer be pic or titled. Texas for one I know for sure. MA. Don't either and there are others. I bought a trailer in Texas to haul back a bike I bought down there and when I got back to Colorado I just showed my bill of sale and had a CHP vin verification and got my tag registration and title no problem. I think Colorado has other vin verification station now all over. Make sure your BOS has vin # on it.

Home made titles are not as easy to get again years past. Research exactly what needs to be done before you pull the trigger.

It's been quite a few years since I got the home made trailer titled. Back then they did not even do an inspection on it. They just took my money and gave me the title and a foil decal to affix to the trailer.

Bill of sale needs to be notarized. Been there done that. When you get the vin inspection at the police station they won't make you pay a bond if you have the notarized bill of sale
