Great! Glad that is the case. DMV has different rules when the trailer is new and purchased directly from the manufacturer. Here in New Mexico, with our used trailer, we were told that they could not give us a plate or registration without physically inspecting the VIN and examining the import papers and title. But if it had been new from the manufacturer they could do it with the paperwork provided by the manufacturer. In fact another NM Escape buyer just went through that exact process recently and was able to get tags, etc.
It is clear that when the vehicle is used they are checking for all the papers to match in case it might be stolen or such...especially when importing.
