Yes. You are responsible to repay every cent of the loan plus the stated interest rate and the default interest rate if any is stated in the loan papers. The lender is allowed to take possession of your property if you fail to make the scheduled payments on the loan. However, by the time the lender repossesses the property, the value of that property has usually gone down due to neglect or abuse of said property. The lender is bound to get the best sales price for the property. If you owed $10,000 on the loan and the property was sold for $12,000, the lender has to return the extra $2,000 to you. However, if you owed $10,000 and the property sold for $8,000, you would be responsible to pay the $2,000.

How can you get a repossessed trailer removed off of your property?

Contact the company that has supposedly repossessed the trailer to pick up what they have yet to repossess. Contact your local clerk of court or magistrate to find out how long you should give them.

These laws are very general nationwide and very particular state and countywide.

When a truck pulls a trailer the trailer and truck accelerate forward even though the action and reaction forces are the same size but are in opposite directions. Why don't these forces balance each o?

The action and reaction on the tow bar are forces which are internal to the system comprising truck+trailer. They therefore do not affect the motion of that system. The motion of the truck+trailer system is affected by forces acting on the system, not within the system,The fact that the action and reaction between the truck and trailer are balance explains why the trailer does not slam into the truck.

In most countries, if the other person had clear title to the trailer (i.e they owned it outright and there was no loan or lien attached to it) then the purchase is legal.

How do fifth wheels balance?

As you didnot specify RV, Tractor trailer, Trailer dynamics or truck dynamics my question will speak directly to RV situations. The hitch loading on an RV fifth wheel hitch is designed to be between 10% and 15% of overall trailer weight. This is determind by trailer design and axle placement. In the Tractor trailer world they can move the trailer axles, The fifth wheel hitch location and plan the loading to achive the goal of roughly 1/2 trailer weight or less on the hitch. The Trailer looks like it balances on a pedistal and in a way it does. The trailer axles provide the stability side to side for the trailer. Just like a tricycle. The advantage of the Fifth Wheel set up is that the trailer does not have any leverage on the truck to make the truck turn or sway in cross winds or other poor conditions. I am sure you have seen video of trailers swaying out of control and pushing the tow vehicle into the ditch.
