Thank you Thoer....that sounds like a better plan.

Successful Second Attempt at Registering!

So, some call me stubborn...I prefer "persistent creative thinker". I decided to try a second attempt at registering Wild Thing, this time at a different RMV and was successful.
I did not take all the paperwork that ET sent me this time, but only gave them the Bill of Sale, the RMV1 forms from my insurance agent, and the Certificate of Origin from ET (the one on the gray paper that says Cert. of Origin for Travel Trailer at the top). I wish I had taken a photo of the Certificate of Origin I gave them before going since they kept it, but with these three documents I was successful in registering the trailer and now have my plate!

I did not hand over the NAFTA Certificate of Origin that will be stamped by customs when the trailer is imported, nor did I give them the other import documents supplied by ET in my packet. I hoped that limiting the info I provided (ie. keeping my big mouth shut!) I would make it easier for them to complete the transaction. I also did not offer any info about the fact that the trailer is not yet completed, that I have not yet taken possession and that it has not yet crossed the border. I just smiled, batted my baby blues, and kept the nice customer service rep talking about where he would go if he had a trailer... and voila!
