Understood. But to the manufacturer, it could be a new VIN for that vehicle. If you were a crook, and stole a trailer, and the rightful owner of that trailer reported the VIN as stolen, you'd want to order a new VIN number for that trailer. So, you find a valid one on a similar trailer that has not been stolen, and simply request a new VIN tag matching the trailer that is NOT reported stolen, then affix it to the one that HAS been reported stolen so you can sell it. If they could do that with cars and trucks, there would be a much easier black market in salvage title vehicles.
This is why manufacturers are very reluctant to simply make a new VIN tag. You know you're not lying to them, but they don't know that.
