Ray, I know my car requires an I section, but when I asked about it at the court house she gave me papers and said, " No, this is all you need" and she knew it was 5,300 lbs. it has been confusing because I am getting a lot of different answers, even from the DMV.

Yes, they do. I just called the local tax office out of curiosity and they told me that you would need to go by and pick up a bonded title application and that the packet would explain what to do.

Don't mean to sound stupid, but what is a bonded title?

Not a stupid question at all. I had to do this once with a car years ago. No reason for you to have known. It allows you to title when the ownership is incorrect or title has been lost. Probably requires some kind of surety bond, too.

Call the DMV and they will explain the process.

From what I understand, the only drawback to this type of title is that there is usually a time period when ownership can be challenged. Since you said you have two bills of sale and the actual title, it shouldn't ever be an issue....I wouldn't be concerned. You can usually transfer this into an actual title after a certain period of time...I'm not sure how long that would be here, but I've heard three years is typical. That would only be inconvenient if you wanted to sell it before that time.

A couple years ago, my local county tax office would not transfer a Texas title without the titled owner being present because, of all things, the signatures (front and back) did not match EXACTLY. I ended up doing the transfer at his local county tax/assessor collector office with him present showing ID and declaring it his signature.

Have you closely compared the sigs on the title he gave you just to be on the safe side? You seem nice and really don't need one more hassle.

The county tax office will not check for an inspection sticker, and it's unnecessary to do a title transfer.

It's an on the road thing. As I understand this, it becomes important if you have an accident or get stopped by a law officer while towing, and then only if that officer knows enough to look for it on the trailer.

There's info on the DPS site...
http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/rsd/vi/...nCriteria.aspx
choose Trailers or Mobile Homes under 'vehicle class'.

The worst part is if the true titled owner says it is stolen & the signiture is forged....... you have a big mess on your hands or if they have passed on it could become part of their estate. Would never buy any vehicle without the true titled owner being part of the sale.

Virginia is different I realize but if there is no title there is almost no way to get one. I have delt with old Mustangs over the years & sad but you have to part them out with no title here........
But on your trailer the DMV here will make you go back to the original titled owner & get a bill of sale from them, plus the original signature on the title. even on a sale with no issues (for private sales) title plus signed bill of sale.......been there done that......

Good Luck................

IF you can contact the original owner and IF they are agreeable, have them apply for a duplicate title (because of lost original), then have them sell directly yo you, leaving presrnt owner out of the deal.
