I have a trailer I got from my boyfriend Dad who has since passed but he had an old abandoned box trailer and there is no VIN. I'm in CA and was wondering if I go the route that is a homemade trailer do I have to put some homemade things on it? It's not a homemade trailer just abandoned 9 years ago

No, I believe you would essentially register the trailer as a homemade trailer then have the VIN number assigned to that trailer. You don't need to put anything "Homemade" on the trailer.

Just dont tow the trailer on any public roads until you have a VIN assigned and have it registered. Could cause other problems for you if stopped.

Lien it. Find a place that does this for you.

you will need some pretty heavy paperwork to come up with a home made believable story.
