I don't see why no title is a big deal. Various terms apply to salvaged vehicles or home builts. Years ago I bought a small home made utility trailer in Colorado, and with a bill of sale, got a VIN and title in Maryland. With or without a title, Colorado requires a VIN inspection before it will issue a registration for any vehicle brough in from another state.

OTOH, the world is full of campers needing a good home! Keep searching. If you do buy this camper, don't pay more than you are willing to lose, plus disposal fees. Or just take your dough to a rolling craps game. Chances of coming out ahead are about the same.

The axel probably got bent as they went screaming down the back road , chased by the PD, when they stole it.

There are far too many trailers available on the market to take chances with a non-titled one. I'd take a pass and keep looking.

x2 yep this is the case. Someone probably purchased the "savage rights" to the unit.

Thanks for all the replies! I haven't gone any farther on that unit. Although it seems like a good deal to me, it does appear that campers are selling for less in the south than what they sell for around my area, and that is how I found that one.
My wife and I dont borrow money for anything (except the house) as we are pretty big Dave Ramsey fans, and would be paying cash for whatever we buy. That being said, I am always looking for a deal. It seems that acording to NADA our 242FK would bring about 5K in my area, so if I could upgrade to something a bit bigger with a slide for only a few hundred bucks would be awsome. There just doesn't seem to be anything like that in our area in that price range. I will keep looking and maybe something else will pop up in KY soon in our price range or maybe we will just keep what we have for another year or two.
Thanks again for all the advice!! Dave

Like others said RUN RUN RUN. At the bare minimum have them apply for a lost title and do all the foot work from their end. If they can then come up with one it only solves one problem. To many questions that indicate that it is time toput your Nike's on and RUN from this deal.
