We purchased a used trailer from private individual in Indiana many weeks ago. Of course we bought it during the pandemic shutdown, we are just dumb that way.

I cannot get a straight answer out of SOS. They say they are open now for vehicle registrations, but they do not define "vehicle", as in does that include recreational vehicles (or motor RV's) or just cars and trucks.

Has anyone from Michigan registered or title transferred of their trailer since June 1st?

I answered this in the other place.. There i gave a link to the PDF file I just downloaded.> Chapter 1 holds the answer

But the basic answer is any thing designed to carry goods or people down the road is a Vehicle. That includes an RV or Camper trailer.

As long as the seller gave you the old title and a bill of sale, you're good to go.

Buying used trailer during pandemic? Why is that dumb? What diff does it make if there's the Rona or not? He!!, I've sold 2 and bought 1 car since the Rona. Just luck of the draw...

But why ask us rather than calling or stopping by your dmv office? Are you saying they didn't give you a straight answer over the phone and then refused ot answer your question as to whether they'd register your trailer?
