Where Can I Get A Vehicle History Report For My RV?

Where and how can I find out who has previously owned the 5th wheel I have just purchased.

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

Since you have a 5th wheel 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 get a Vehicle History Report. 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.

You title for the rv will state it's original show that to your buyer once you sign the title it has been signed off and the buyer takes it to the department of motor vehicles it will get processed and a new transfered title will be issued it will never say original again

This site is a rip off, They provide nothing that can be obtained by looking at the manufacturers plate.

RV FAX REPORT
by: Anonymous

We are also interested in finding out history on our 5th wheel. we purchased it "new" '06 in 2007 but since we have owned it we have discovered numerous conditions that cause us to think it had been wrecked prior to our purchase of it.

Thank you

VIN
by: Anonymous

I am currently looking into this, I have a 5th wheel and I am having the same issue. I have found a site that decodes the VIN, The best I have found so far is how many times it has been sold and by what dealer.

I will keep you informed as I get further.
