Hi: dmetz... So sorry you're "Caught in the middle". This whole mess just shows a lack of regard of "Goober mints" for the public at large. They really are there to protect themselves. Alf

The ! indicates that this WMI may not currently be registered with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration through 49 CFR 565 (proper VIN code accepted and posted) as on-road vehicles.
... which is essentially what Sarah said in her note, and matches the result from a test in the VIN Decoder.
The good news is that as of today the result in the same query is flagged with a check mark...
Quote:
The <checkmark> indicates that this WMI has been registered with NHTSA 565 process, includes the most current data available, and self-certified by the manufacturer as meeting the minimum safety requirements for importation, registration and use on U.S. for models and model years indicated by the manufacturer within the 565. Data associated to this WMI has been included within the dataset for vPIC for use by the public, which includes decoding and general specifications for standard equipment.
For a sample Escape VIN (a recently built new-style 21'), NHTSA's VIN Decoder now works. It doesn't know much - and most of the items would not apply to a trailer anyway - but from over a hundred items of details, mostly blank, it does know...
Code:
Group Name 		Element 		Value
Exterior / Body 	Body Class 		Trailer 
Exterior / Trailer 	Trailer Type Connection Ball Type Pull 
Exterior / Trailer 	Trailer Body Type 	Travel Trailer 
Exterior / Trailer 	Trailer Length (feet) 	20 
General 		Make 			ESCAPE 
General 		Manufacturer Name 	ESCAPE TRAILER INDUSTRIES LTD. 
General 		Model 			Escape Trailer Industries Ltd. 
General 		Model Year 		2016 
General 		Plant City 		Chilliwack 
General 		Vehicle Type 		TRAILER 
General 		Plant Country 		Canada 
General 		Plant State 		British Columbia 
General 		Manufacturer Id		15617 
Mechanical / Drivetrain Axles 			2
I think the "Manufactuer Id" is interesting - it is not part of the VIN, and is not the World Manufacturer ID, but has been looked up from within a database that Escape Trailer Industries was apparently not in earlier.

Just got an email from Tammy saying that she received confirmation from NHSTA that ETI may resume importing trailers into the US. Yay!!! She is awaiting confirmation from Customs to be sure ETI is showing in their system.

Finally one of the (too many) worries are maybe off of Tammy's plate now. Congrats to everyone awaiting their trailer during all this.

Woohoo, according to my email from Tammy, deliveries will restart next Tuesday, 8/16 with deliveries to Texas, then ours and then Florida!!! How the heck can a stinking government agency first be saying 4 weeks, then "maybe" the end of this week, then today...crazy. But I'm glad its over
