It's a STATE matter so it all depends on which state you live in.

If you're talking about the 17 digit VIN like a car, motorcycle, or trailer has, then no. Truck campers are not vehicles as far as DOT/NHTSA are concerned and will not have a VIN.

Manufacturers do assign serial numbers to each unit they build however, and they can take just about any form as far as alpha/numeric/length etc. After all, the manufacturer has to have some way to keep track of each unit for warranty and service reasons.

Typically, a new truck camper will come with a "Manufacturers Statement of Origin", or something similar. Some states will then issue you a title, particularly if there is a lien against it. Some states register and tag truck campers, or assess them as personal property, strictly for the revenue they can collect from them.

At the minimum I would print out a blank "bill of sale" and have the seller fill it out.
