Vehicle History Report

Hello, looking for advice. A prospective buyer is asking for a Vehicle History Report. Can anyone advise if this is a common requirement when selling a trailer?

I've never heard about it for all-molded towables. But maybe a moho, something with a motor.


Sounds like the buyer needs an education about the build type...

In New York, Not sure about other states or Canada but in NY you can look up the status of title if registered in NY but it will only tell you if something has a clear, rebuilt or salvage title and weather it has a lien or not. This includes trailers, towable…no other info.

When we were looking at our trailer last year I pulled up a report on the VIN# on FAXVIN prior to traveling out to view the trailer. That site will show the history of the trailer and if any wrecks, etc have been reported. The info is similar to a carfax report for a used car if you're familiar with that. For us it just gave us some added comfort before we drove 600miles to inspect/buy the trailer.

I paid $9.95 for the faxvin report on our trailer. You could order the report for your trailer and then send a copy of it to any interested buyer. For a one time cost of $9.95 its a cheap investment if it helps sell the RV for you.

And if this sale falls through you'd have it to offer to future potential buyers.
