The form is completely legible but the stamp is just a pink stain ... No way to tell what it is or was ...

Yikes! The stamp is the most important part...hopefully that won't be a fatal problem with registering a new trailer. I think it would have been a show stopper for ours since it was used and we imported it ourselves. Guess you'll find out soon.....

I will wait until Reace returns from vacation. I am kind of nervous anyway that the camper is starting construction while they are away. Hopefully they have some good people watching the shop.
I think you'll be okay. It's apparent when visiting the factory that they run a pretty tight ship. I don't think anyone would risk slacking off while the bosses are away.

Whew. I just got off the phone with Virginia DMV. The stamp is no longer required on the Form 7501 for VA titling and registration.

Tom and Cheryl,
You may want to follow this thread for some information. How do people from East Coast do warranty repairs?

My stamp is also blurred, but it didn't matter since NY registered the trailer with an unstamped copy and gave me my plate to take to the factory.

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.

Enjoy!

We have been watching that too. Its just when your 2700 miles away and 100 miles to the closest major city its just adds a little worry for any repairs that might come up. I'm sure anyone on the east coast has had this cross their mind but we made our decision to purchase an Escape because of their quality and customer service and we know if there are any problems they will take care of it somehow. Its just a lot easier for those that can run back to the factory to have them taken care of. Hopefully if any do pop up I can just take care of them myself.

You are lucky to have fiberglass experts Oliver in your home state, they might be able to help if you ever needed it.

Another item is you maybe comparing an Escape with your other fg camper you sold? Not to worry as there is no comparison, your Escape will be trouble free, I'm sure.
