The lower case F was an error on my part typing the post. It is an uppercase F.

When I am able to get to the RV, I’ll located the VIN on the frame and double check. Then find an LEO and see what comes back.

Thanks

I found a VIN decoder for trailers that work with my 5ver VIN.

Try this and see what you come up with.

That web tool identified it as a 2014 Lifestyle RV.

Interesting

I tried the tool and it identified my trailer as a Rockwood Yamaha Motorcycle. Weird[emoticon]

On trailers that can be an issue. Some companies put it next to the hitch or just back from it.. Some hide it.


Home is where I park it.

It being difficult, or "an issue," doesn't make it, not, the only correct answer. Literally every other source involved someone else transcribing the VIN. Errors can occur.

My son, who was in GA at the time, had the FBI coming knocking on his door in regards to a murder in Buffalo, NY. There was a one character typo of the murder weapon serial number. That one little typo lead them to my son. They quickly figured it out. Interesting things can happen with typos.
