A trailer's 17-digit VIN will usually be located near the tongue area on an inside-facing surface where the information will be protected from impacts from road debris. Although this placement is common there is no absolute rule about where a trailer manufacturer has to place the VIN. The linked photo shows an example of a 17-digit VIN.

The Hammerblow trailer company from Wausau, Wisconsin was bought out by Cequent Performance Products, which is now known as Horizon Global. I checked with my contacts there about the Hammerblow trailers and they could not offer advice about the location of the VIN.

The VIN system was started in 1982. If you trailer is older than that it may not have one. In cases like this you can have your local highway patrol assign one.
