Hope you can do better than what happened to me. I have a 2000 Trail-Et horse trailer that will want to sell some day, so went to look for the title. Turns out we never received the title from the bank. It's been paid off now for nearly 20 years, and whats bad about this, Conseco, the company that had the lien, has been out of business for 15 or so years. I went to file a lost title on it, and because the lien was never released, I need proof of release of lien. Talk about a catch 22.

Awaiting title

- The letter provided me with a BOTWest call back # which accepted my request to confirm note was paid in full as of 10 days ago. (Slow posting is guess) and stated the Title was mailed out 4 days ago (Slow motion again)

So Now I'm waiting for private seller to advise me he has received the title...

Mass. RMV is running at least 7 days behind in regard to getting registrations so I am going to bit the bullet and place my utility trailer plate on the RV to get it home instead of waiting for RMV to mail me the registration... (My better half is pressing me to get our merchandise home asap)

I called state police to see how they would react if I try to get the TT home with out the new lpates and registrartion. The trooper stated off the record if I had all the above docs, they would/could give me some slack - just to get it home...

Thoughts and thanks for all the feed back!
Well, depending on how law abiding your are; here is what I did. I simply took a plate from my truck, put it on the MH and drove home. Unless you have an incident, nobody is the wiser. The VIN check at the DMV immediately revealed the bogus tag and plate but no one cared. I should have removed the plate in advance but forgot. The title eventually came about 6 weeks later.

That is a misdemeanor offense in some states. Meaning you now have a criminal record, with your fingerprints on file forever.

Fingerprints on file? Big deal. If you served in the military, ever held a security clearance, have a concealed carry permit, or in some states ever purchased a "you know what", your fingerprints are on file even with no criminal record.

Only people who need to worry are those who leave their prints where they shouldn't.

I don't know about you, but I like the fact that I have no criminal history. As for people who served in the military, hold/held a security clearance, have a CCW or purchased some item, we're talking about a relatively small segment of the population. Most people go a lifetime without ever being fingerprinted.

But regardless, I would not advise people to use a license plate that is not legally associated with that vehicle.

Fingerprints on file is not the problem. Having a misdemeanor associated with those fingerprints is. In most states, driving with a expired or non-existent vehicle registration is a moving traffic violation. Moving license plates from one vehicle to another rises to the level of attempting to defraud the government and is a misdemeanor. The OP knew they were driving the vehicle in violation of Massachusetts state laws. Then they attempted to cover their actions by moving license plates. The second action intentionally taken to prevent detection of the first action would completely negate any defense in court that would mitigate the first action.

My Mother-in-Law was a wise old lady and I loved her tremendously. Sadly she is gone now but much of her wise guidance still exist within the grey matter.

Id like to pass alone her advice regarding anything unlawful...........DON'T DO IT!

We are at over 15 weeks here in Oregon for titles. They are blaming COVID. Supposedly law enforcement has been told to not stop anyone in Oregon for tag violations. The temp tag on my new to me Durango expires 5/2 and the temp tag on my new trailer expired a month ago. I've made every possible legal effort I can to comply with registration requirements and just going to leave the expired tags in the Windows and continue to drive.

Purchased a car from private party once... we drove to the bank handed them the CASH and they handed me the title.... took them 20 min to find it.

In terms of your situation I would have the previous owner sign a release of interest on the unit and Bill of sale. Their state should have a forms for it. then I would drag it home. NO way I would have Paid for it and not hooked up to it. Not sure if previous owner cares about the lic plate but if not leave it on and take it home and or promise to mail them back.

I can't see police being THAT picky especially given the situation, even dealing with a ticket after the fact would be fairly simple to do as once it's all said and done your going to have registration.


Not to scare you but friend deals with titles for a large dealership in the area and she has a few cars that took a year to get cleared up as multiple banks, states ended up involved and less then fully honest owners trading them in.

My state has a process to get a title, AKA lost and unknown situations. Basically they give 3 years for someone to complain and if no one does you get a title. you can register it, use it etc and then it's yours. Did it on a boat :

Previous owner financed the TT with OPs bank. Payoff process---- bank, bank to dmv, dmv to registered owner= exactly one month.
When I bought the TT, I took it home with bill of sale, and current registration and tag. Then I got a full coverage insurance(Good Sams) for it even though it's still not registered under my name. Two weeks later, used and enjoyed TT at the beach for 5 days!
Just got a call from the previous owner that I should receive it in 2 days. So I guess I'll head to AAA office to do a dmv title transfer this weekend. Happy camping!

One thing to keep in mind is that all the 50 states have their own laws regarding vehicle titles and lien holders. So whatever happens in the other 49 states is not applicable in bucknut's state.
