This may be the wrong thread to post this so please direct me to the right one. I just bought a M105a3 trailer With a bill of sale. Can someone give step by step procedure to go from a trailer with no title, to a trailer with a legal Pennsylvania license plate? Talked to two notaries and neither could give me a good answer. Thanks ahead of time !

If it is older...say before 1995...you can go through Maine. I just called them about a newer trailer without a title, and they said it was a no-go because it was over 3,000 pounds (unladen weight) and newer than 1995. With that said, the M105A3 is below 3,000 pounds. I believe, though, they were made more recently than 1995. You probably should call a Maine titling company to see what they say.

Not sure about your local laws out there, but in a similar situation in Colorado you can call it a "homemade trailer". You fill out some paperwork stating how you made it; where you bought the parts or had parts, the county assigns you a VIN, you get the VIN signed off by the State Troopers VIN inspector that you either marked it or placed the VIN on right and then pay for your plates. It's the easiest way around all that bureaucracy out here in the wild west. I had a couple guys tell me that I sure made a fine looking homemade trailer, looked factory.....I took their praise in stride.

I have used this route many times and recommend it.
Notice there are 2 Maine companies with almost the same url that specialize in this with slightly different pricing so do your home work.
I recommend this one:
