Hi Shane, my name is Jason.
Typically when you can not find any identifying marks on a trailer you would register/title it as home made. Is there any reason you can not do that?
There is no way to determine who made the trailer with the info you have supplied. If there are no other identifying names on the trailer all you can do is title it as home made. What you have to keep in mind with trailers is 95% of them are not made by a large company with a recognizable name. The majority of all boat trailers, especially if you are talking about something from the 70's, were made one at a time by a small business that operated out of a basic industrial park. They were not mass produced by a large company with a large plant. Just a couple of guys could weld that decided to form a small business is who made the trailer. Does that make sense?
There is no VIN numbers on a trailer. At this point you could tell them whatever you want to tell them, they would literally have no way research this own their own. I'm in Florida and I deal with trailers all the time. If you don't want to go the home made route, just tell them it's an EZ Loader, which is a recognizable brand name. They won't have any way to tell you it's not something else.
I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
Personally that is why I would simply title/register it as home made. Anything else is way more trouble than it's worth for a 38 year old boat trailer.
