A: It's important to act quickly to resolve the issue with the RV title. First, gather all the documents related to your purchase, including the bill of sale and any communication with the seller. Make copies of everything for your records.

You've already reported the situation to the police, which is a good step to take. Continue to follow up with them and provide any additional information they may need to investigate the fraud case.

Additionally, consider seeking legal advice from an attorney who specializes in consumer protection or contract law. They can provide you with guidance on how to proceed, such as sending a demand letter to the seller or exploring potential legal actions.

Contact your local DMV again to understand the steps you need to take to resolve the title issue. They may have specific instructions or requirements for situations like this.

Lastly, be cautious about making any further payments or commitments related to the RV until the title issue is resolved. Protect your interests and document all interactions with the seller and authorities for future reference.
