That is all that many have had.
And you imported it into the state of Colorado (not the state of Washington.) It was imported into the United States at the Washington border but unless you are a Washington resident, you are importing it into your state where you register and title it.
It certainly is inconvenient for those who are required to have an inspection with the trailer present in order to register it, but that is not uncommon apparently. Many people have managed to get tags anyway by simply going to the "right" office. Different answers everywhere, no matter which state you are from, seems to be the norm!
