|VIN Number Doesn't Match||Beth||4-2-11|
|We just bought a fifth wheel. We think the guy has really lied to us. The VIN NUmber on the hitch is on a sticker that has is State of XX and says "assembled" and matches the Title. We have found out that it was retitled when it was a complete insurance loss. The title actually has a different year than the camper and says "assembled" also meaning complete loss. The VIN doesn't match the sticker on the side of the camper. He of course had all our money b4 we noticed all this. We knew he had replaced the roof--said insurance paid for it cuz he got a low branch at a camnpground. Said he was the original owner, but we have found some stickers on the camper from an RV place out of state. So, I requested a VIN history from our secy of state ofc, but now I am wondering if I should have requested on both VIN numbers. Didn't realize there were 2 VIN numbers.|
Of course because of this,I cannot insure this for what the trailer should really be worth. As soon as there is any claim, the co will run the VIN number and see that it is salvaged and not give me as much money.

|Ask your local DMV office about a vehicle BONDSMAN.. It costs around $140 here in TX. But a Bondsman will secure the title and any and all liability against the rv will be null and void. Which means that if it was stolen etc. or has a lien on it from a previous owner, those will be null and void and the trailer will have a clear title, in your name. As far as insurance stating its salvaged, You just mention you *RESTORED the RV. to all vehicle codes. I restore RV's and have retitled several salvaged RV's with clear clean titles.|
