Same here and ran into a situation on a trailer I own and am first owner on. My issue is that I never received the original title from the loan company, which by the way, is no longer in business. Conseco has no record of it. Well I am considering selling the trailer, it is a 2000 Trail Et New Yorker and in immaculate condition since it has been in indoor storage since 2003.
So I go to the SOS to find out how to get a copy of the title and find out they will not issue it without proof of release of lien. GREAT! Company that has their name on the title is defunct, trailer was paid for 15 years ago, and no way to get the release of lien.
It is just as bad as the issue the OP has.
