Airstream VIN Translator

I originally posted this on a thread about motorhome production numbers. But then I realized that this translator should work for all post 1982 trailers and motorhomes so I reposted here:

I was inspired by this thread [motorhome production numbers] and decided to create a little .NET web application called the "Airstream VIN Translator". It will translate the Airstream VIN for your MH or Trailer (1982 or newer) for you. Just enter in your number and click the "Translate" button.

You can try it out at: http://216.26.139.91/AirstreamVIN/AirstreamVIN.aspx

I translated mine and it's pretty accurate:

1A9BGAU3XGJ010705 Translates to:

Mfg, Make, Type: Airstream Class A Motorhome
Type: Corner Bath, Modern Design *10/1/01
Series: Motorhome, Front Gasoline Engine, Chevy
Body Type: Semi-monocoque, 96" narrow body, continuous curved, shiny aluminum Shell, contoured window glass, fames and doors
Length: 34 to less than 35
Axle Configuration: Triple Axle
Check Digit: X
Model Year: 1986
Site of Manufacturer: Jackson Center, Ohio
Sequential Number: 010705

Try it out....it's fun!

Cool ASP .Net App!

That is very cool! I'm learning Visual Studio .Net (and ASP .Net) and can really appreciate the effort that you put into your program! Keep up the good work!

VIN Translator

Below is what I got with the Airstream VIN Translator:
Everything looks correct, except the 370LE was only built with a FORD engine and transmission. The rest of the info. looks good. Also, the sequential number fits with those already posted, i.e. 11220 fits right in between the previous years and the '90 model on the list.
