Your VIN number should be on a plate on the door side (curb side) of the coach, to the front of the door.

I also have a stamped number on the road side of the tongue frame. While I don't remember the numbers, it has no similarity to the trailer VIN.

My Class A has a VIN typo on the plate that is in front of the driver's seat at the windshield. I had problems with this when I bought the used moho: my insurance comapny told me the VIN was not correct, then they accepted it. I only found out about the error when I found a second plate that chassis mfgr. Workhorse had put under the hood. Not sure if it is useful to change: it agrees with the registration now.

I do have the plate on the front door, and it has a Mis printed 9 instead of a 6...I had another post started on the Bambi but I am just bound and determined to prove that this is a factory error....The plate just does not look like it has been tampered with!! I "might" be wrong though....and if so I would like to find the right one! I will check out under the counter tops TODAY! Thanks!
