How long to get your title from another state

Purchased trailer from Indiana, I am in Va.
For those that purchased out of state how long before you got the title?
I need it to register in my state.

Did you finance? If so it possibly went directly to the lender.
In my case it went directly to my county courthouse.

Otherwise you should get it upon completion of paperwork @ the dealer in a cash situation.

I live in Kansas ... bought and financed fiver in Missouri. Title was signed and handed over with the paperwork. I wouldn't have left the dealership without it or I wouldn't have been able to title it in Kansas. At our tag offices when we finance units ... once initialy sent in, the State keeps the title till paid for then sends it to the owner.

I bought mine in Michigan new. Dealer gave me a 30 day temporary registration. Then mailed me the rest of the paper work. It had a manufacturers document (don't remember what they called it) but I had to take that to DMV in NY and they turned that into a title.

I live in Indiana but bought mine in OH. I went to the BMV on like the 18th, and they told me it would take about 2 weeks, but could be longer with it being the holidays and mail taking slower.

Just had to get the trailer VIN checked out by a Cop or BMV employee and wait on the paperwork to come in.

I bought ours in Wisconsin and I live in Illinois and it took 6 weeks and a frustrated phone call from me to get it mailed overnight so I could get it titled and license plates.

It's called "Certificate of Origin".

We got the best deal in Boise Idaho, had "certificate of origin" called California DMV, could not just mail in for registration. Had to make appointment, wait a week, drive down to have the VIN number "approved" and trlr measured (all of that info was on cert.) DMV lady came to trailer and asked me if it should be measured from wheel centers? Duh, convinced her to measure total length, guess what just like the cert. of orig. Three weeks later pocketbook lighter we were registered.

Thumbs up

I found my TT new online in KY.

I went to my IL credit union and hooked them up with the dealer in KY for the arrangements.

After those two got it together, my credit union gave me a temporary tag and paper work to take to the KY dealer. I would be titling in IL and not pay anything to KY.

After doing the PDI with the dealer, I gave the dealer the credit union paperwork, and got papers to take to my credit union, and towed the TT home.

After 30 days I contacted my credit union and asked where my actual plate was. Now, the credit union goes into a panic and 10 days later asked me if I got any additional paperwork from the dealer.

I found among a lot of dealer feel good mail and advertisements, I got a personal thank you letter from the saleswoman that contained a "certificate of origin" that I dismissed as it looked like something that just proved FR make the thing.

Two days short of my temporary tag expiring, my real plate arrived. The dealer was only a year plus old and fumbled a bit. No big deal, it all worked out and was a very simple process, less the title snafu. Still good feeling with all involved.
