How Do I Find Out The Owner History On A Travel Trailer?

How do I research a VIN for a travel trailer?

ANSWER Greetings JeanneMarie thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Since you have a travel trailer, it will not be as easy to get the information you are requesting. If you have a motorhome you can use services such as CARFAX to run a Free CARFAX Record Check. But even CARFAX does not provide the names of the previous owners, they only provide the number of previous owners, plus a lot of other useful information such as Title Problems, Accident and Service History, etc.

Unfortunately you cannot use CARFAX for looking up the histories on Travel Trailers, 5th Wheels, Tent Trailers or Campers. In fact I could not find a service that looks up the histories for non-motorized RVs.

For the information on the previous owner of your 5th wheel, I would suggest that you either contact the DMV or the insurance company that insures your 5th wheel trailer to see if they can provide you the information. Don't be surprised however if they refuse to provide you the name and address information on the previous owners. Due to all the privacy laws in the US, they may be prohibited from providing this information to you.
