Louisiana registered boat and trailer, but no vin i.d. on trailer

Reply
 
I do not have a stamped vin number on my boat trailer. I bought the boat and trailer 'used'. The dealer provided papers that include a trailer title with a vin number on the title. But no vin stamped on the trailer. HOW can I find out from the State of LA what I can do to have a vin stamped on my trailer. I heard that I need an affidavit when you have a stamp added to a trailer. Talked to Troop A and they said to visit the 'LA Trailer Spamp' office that provides HOME made trailer stamping only. Who do I call for help?

I had my homemade trailer stamped by a State Trooper (Troop C in Houma). Provided him with a material list and receipts. I'd imagine they should be able to do the same with a legit title. Maybe try Wildlife and Fisheries Dept in BR if you don't have any luck.

You have the title and number. Why not just go the Harbor Freight, get a stamp set, and put them on yourself? https://www.harborfreight.com/36-piece-14-in-steel-letternumber-stamping-set-60671.html

Thanks. I already have stencils. But an affidavit may be necessary. As I mentioned. Government and the state laws can be very very odd in their procedures. Thanks again. I plan to call DWF.

I've never owned a factory trailer that had a vin number stamped on it . It may only be necessary if title says home made ...
