I would have had a big problem, since I wasn't wearing a skirt.

Olive Oyl had stems, Betty Grable had gams...

I understand the logic, and the purchase (and even importation) paperwork can be evidence that the trailer isn't stolen, but that doesn't make it legal to be on the road anywhere that trailers must be registered. This is a discussion with law enforcement which I would rather avoid... although again, I doubt most police officers would bother with it.

I picked up my Utah trailer plate last week, 3 weeks prior to picking up our 17B. Took two trips to the DMV (one to be told what was needed - probably could have just called!), but in addition to the import paperwork so kindly provided by ETI, they needed a Certificate of Inspection (TC-661, which can be downloaded here: http://tax.utah.gov/forms/current/tc-661.pdf) signed by ETI to verify the VIN and a fully paid copy of the build sheet showing payments in US$ (again graciously provided by ETI upon request). After paying sales tax and registration fees I walked out with my plate. I was able to scan and email the state form to ETI to be signed and scanned/emailed back - very quickly, I might add.

You are lucky, according to that form, ETI was not authorized to do the verification of the VIN#, only a peace officer or authorized mv agents in other states can sign. That is same here in Penciltucky, you have to have someone verify the vin# before getting the title and tag, someone other than the buyer or seller.

Seems to me that this is another example of some common sense employed by a business friendly state such as (and especially) Utah. ETI is the manufacturer, not a consignment lot. This makes perfect sense to me, and since there is nothing to lose but a little time will try this in CA. Who knows- maybe some good old-fashioned incompetence will get the job done.
