2. Apply for a State of Maine title (for units 1995 model year or newer). Applications for a title can be obtained at the town’s Finance & Tax Collection office, at Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicle branch offices, or by contacting the Title Unit in Augusta at (207) 624-9000 x52138.
3. If you purchased a camper or trailer (including park models) and the seller did not collect sales tax, file an Individual Use Tax Return (IUSE) with the State of Maine.
