Problem with registering as MH in VT

My application for a MH registration in Vermont got returned today. The thing they want me to fill out is section 3B, specifically the name and address of the person or company I acquired the vehicle from.

Problem is, I purchased the bus from somebody on eBay and I don't have any info on them other than their eBay username, their real-life first name and their cell phone number (I paid via squareup and the bus was delivered to me so I never met the dude). I asked him for a BOS but he never replied and I didn't pursue it since I didn't need one for the VT registration.

Wat do? Can I just use eBay's name and address?

Did you buy a bus with no title?

Well no, but the title the seller gave me was the signed-over title from the school system he had purchased the bus from a few years ago (in other words my seller had never retitled it in his own name). The date had been left blank so I filled that in and then gave up that signed-over title to PennDOT when I re-titled the bus in PA.

I guess I should just use that school system's name and address for the VT registration (especially since that's probably what's in PA's system now as the previous title holder), but I wonder if they ever audit this stuff and the school system would say they have no idea who I am and they sold the bus in 2015, not 2019 (I still need to get a BOS out of him because I paid tax on the sale amount for my PA title and apparently PA just started auditing these reported values - I dunno if my eBay records will be sufficient).

BTW yes the title thing seemed shady but the bus was already bought and delivered by that point.

So basically you bought it from the school system, so use their name and address. Your deal is less shady than mine was. My seller was in a different state and the title was in the bus here, so I told him I would just sign his name to it when I sold it. That way I don't have to wait weeks for a new title to come in my name.

I sure hope DMV people don't frequent this forum.

Thanks for your help.

Did you get some sort of ebay confirmation of payment like paypal? Might be able to print whatever you have from ebay and use that. You should have an email saying you won the auction if it was an auction.

I have an email from eBay saying I won the auction but the payment was set up outside of paypal/ebay, so the listing had a thing where both the buyer and seller have to click a button that says "payment was received/delivered" or whatever and that's all eBay knows about the deal.

I have a squareup payment receipt that it turns out actually does have a physical address, but the name is still just some random internet-type username that I can't put on the VT application.

Per marc01's suggestion I think I'm just going to use the name and address of the school system that was on the original title I received.

Yeah, it's titled as a BUS in my name in PA now (I did a title transfer only since you can only do the motorhome retitling here after conversion is completed and inspected).
