My mother is 82yrs old. She recently bought a 1965 Aladdin sight unseen. We warned her to NOT buy without a title. The guy assured her it was in good working order. BY the time the guy got to her house it was dark. She bought it and then realized it did not have a title. But she went ahead. She was so excited to have her own trailer. It is the first big purchase she ever made in her life. How can that be you might ask?
Because my dad, though I loved him greatly, was totally in control of all things growing up. Back in the day when woman were to keep the home, and do what the men say. She never had a checking account, never made any purchases except for groceries. She did not have much say. But dad died about 5 years ago. When he was alive we all regularly went camping, boating etc. SO our family missed that a lot.
Now mom wants to have her own trailer and she has it. It had no propane line installed, and lots of problems but not serious. The man was not honest with the condition but she is happy!
I have posted on my blog the before photos and after photos of the ongoing transformation on this trailer. AND she got the title! She learned who to write too, and sent a letter to a older later in another city telling her what she needed. she even sent the lady 20.00 bucks for her time. I personally thought she would never hear from her and the twenty would be gone. Or they would ask for more money! BUT mom and her hit it off. The lady got the information and signed documents so mom had no problem getting the title at all and it only took about one month. She even sent BACK the twenty!! And told mom to use it for smores on the next camp out! Btw the trailer had traded hands two times w/o a title!
I urge others to never buy without a title though. It could have ended up stolen or hassles unending!
Never the less here is the photos now that you know the story. I will update this blog with more photos and when we all go camping again!!
