I am about to purchase a Legacy Motorhome and I am trading in my travel trailer. I live in Florida and I purchased the Motorhome in Michigan.
I moved to Florida 2 years ago from Maine. When I moved to Florida I basically just parked my travel trailer and I never registered it or did a title transfer from Maine to Florida. The trailer still has the Maine plates on it. The trailer also does have a lien on it.
My question is, if I were to register the trailer in Florida and initiate the title transfer, will that be an issue for the dealer that I am trading the trailer to? I am delivering the trailer to the dealer in Michigan next week and that would not be enough time to complete a title transfer.
Before anyone says anything, lol, I know that if I don't register in Florida and I tow the trailer that I will be towing an unregistered trailer (it still has liability insurance from the tow vehicle). I also know that I was suppose to title transfer 10 days after moving here.
I don't have an issue registering the trailer but I don't want my deal to fall apart if the dealer can't get a title because it's in the process of being transferred.
Thanks for any input you got.......
