I am not sure if this is the right place to put this question. I have a gentleman from Toronto interested in Loo Loo my Loflyte I have for sale. I told him to do some research on his end and I would try to see what I could find out as well. Here is the deal...
The Loflyte comes with a bill of sale only. NY did not issue titles pre-1972 and I do not have the prior reg. In NY there are three forms the buyer/seller have to fill out in order to register with bill of sale only. It's pretty simple. I had a couple from Arizona buy a trailer from me with a bill of sale only and we completed the forms and they registered it here in NY, took a leisurely road trip back home and then re-registered it in Arizona. For some reason, NY does not like to give out those temporary in transit registrations, so they had to do it this way. Probably because NY likes to get the tax money. That is my experience. Anyway, I know that there are exemptions for vehicles crossing the border that are over 15 years old, but you have to prove that it is over 15 years and with no title I doubt my signature on a bill of sale will hold water. Can you register a vehicle in NY if you are from Canada and then switch everything over when you get home? Anyone have any experience in this? In my experience calling the DMV leads to being on hold forever so thought I would ask the forum first.

My husband has a car dealership and he knows all about this. As far as I understand if a car is really old, you don't pay duty etc. but registering it may be up to the individual province. If know one resolves this before he gets home I will get him to check. He is on the board for they'd car dealers and they have a guy who's full time job is to figure this type stuff out.
