Hello to all and thanks for letting me join, I actually stumbled in here from a google search trying to resolve a HUD plate versus serial number problems I am currently having as a real estate assoc broker. Thanks, really nice site.

Hey HarleyDude; everyone keeps telling me I need to go to Ruidoso the next time I'm in El Paso. Sounds like a nice area with the ski resorts.

Hello Harley Dude,

Well, did you solve your problem? If you didn't find the answer, check the Manufactured Home forum, or Private Message one of us. We'll be happy to help if we can.

David,

Ruidoso is really a neat town. Ski resort, lake, casino, race track, antique shopping, golfing, and just typically gorgeous New Mexico mountains. We usually stay in a place up in the canyon called the Storybook Cabins. You'd probably really enjoy it up there.

Actually a big no, removed skirting found front cross member, cleaned it all off (both Sides) and nada, so went ahead and paid IBTS to find out.

I know those cabins well, used to be a lodger myself in the upper canyon just up the road from there.

We love living in Ruidoso, moved here ten years ago from El Paso.

Hi Harley,

So I'm gathering that you have the HUD Certification label numbers, but no serial number?

If that's the case, ITBS is a good option, but I've also been able to ferret out the serial numbers in other ways at times. Just depends on how much information the seller can dig up. I've been able to pull the numbers from NM titles, insurance declarations pages, sometimes the county assessor information. I've even pulled old Real Estate Contracts and been able to find the serial number noted on them if the lawyer drawing up the contract was detailed enough. It's an outside chance, but it's worked from time to time for me.

ITBS is quick, and the database is great. It's just a matter of spending the time or spending the money at this point, I suppose.

HarleyDude,

The most important questions are...what, where and when do you ride? Casual around-towner or well seasoned?

I have an 02' Road Glide, and guess I'm both, have riden all over the world at tmes and now really enjoy short 150 mile type rides around here, like it without cars if possible and here in the mountains is quite nice when all the Texans go home. Planning on a ride to Austin (if wife would cooperate) and dream ride would be in the future but the north shore in minnesota.

Got the IBTS report, serial number doesn't work at DMV either, trying to locate original owner name, running out of options, manufacturer was Palm Harbor, Cameo homes, cameo out of business, dealer out of business, running out of options. Will try pal harbor this afternoon, but starting to look like bond may be the only option.
