What all needs to happen? I did some research online and it says you just go to the dmv with a bill of sale or receipts and they give you a vin # and title. Is it really that easy? No inspections or anything? I just bought a 16' car hauler for really cheap but it doesnt have a title.

it is easy. have to know length, weight and type of trailer (what does it haul and how much). they give you registration, plates and a "vin" tag. plan on finding someone to etch your vin in cause the plaques they give you are pretty much junk

Yup, it is that easy. All you got to do is what Ige said above. For a "homemade" trailer they want to see receipts for materials used, axles, tires, wheels, electrical to know how much to tax you on it.

they didn't ask me for reciepts, just estimated worth.
