Typically trailer VINs have letters in them so most likely the number you found would not be the VIN. The linked image shows you the usual format for a trailer VIN. Your number could be part of a VIN but it is not a complete one.

The VIN number is likely 17 digits for a trailer. Usually commercial trailer manufacturers will indicate the VIN on the same plate or sticker that carries the brand name, model number and the trailer specifications. The model number of the trailer is not the same as the VIN number; the same model number may be used on multiple trailers but a VIN number is unique and individual to each trailer produced just like on a vehicle.

If you cannot find the VIN on the trailer you can check for plates on other parts of the trailer. It may even be stamped into the frame. Check the trailer underside for any additional markings or labels.

In cases of trailers that have no VIN, your local state police or highway patrol can assign a VIN number for you after inspecting the trailer.
