My serial number and model number were stamped onto an aluminum plate that was on the front of the trailer-
It was here-
Odds are you'll probably just find the two small holes from when it was rivited there...
You'll probably have to get a new VIN assigned by the state- I had to do that once when I lived in Ohio, they treated it like a 'homebuilt' trailer. Here in Tennessee, trailers aren't titled, licensed, or registered- So it's easy for us!!
Thanks... Nice to see how it is 'supposed' to look. I guess I'm not that far off, although it looks like I have to repaint my winch
I saw those 'drop down' front parking wheels on some of the trailers at the show I was at this weekend, and like an idiot I didn't take a photo of them & how they worked! I'd love to replace the ugly modern galvanized one that I've got with one of those...
Feel free to submit any original trailer literature to the Classic Boat Library (there's a Gator section that really could use expanding). Really good reference material for those with restoration projects.
