Sorry Brad, I know this thread is over two months old, but the definitive answer to your dilemma is provided here for the benefit of others with similar issues. According to this Airstream document on the NHTSA DOT ftp site, ftp://ftp.nhtsa.dot.gov/mfrmail/ORG4157.pdf, the chassis manufacturer VIN must be used for motorhome registration, for AS trailers use the Airstream VIN.

Fred, thanks for the info! At least I now know what the legal requirement is. Hopefully sometime this year I'll actually be able to take the Argosy to the Kentucky DMV and get it titled and licensed.

One can dream anyway...

Thanks,

Brad

one would think that would take care of it .
my 79 was titled with the Airstream Vin
my 87 was titled with the Chassis manufacturers Vin, which was an 86, but the Airstream Vin was 87. DMV wrote 87 in the title, even with the insurance company saying its an 86.

so......

I'm just going to take all of my paperwork to the DMV and trust that everything will work out.

Yeah right, like that's gonna happen

Easy in your case, it should be stamped right on the side of your shiny door, hahaha

That might be appropriate, there will be enough 1986 345 parts on the Argosy that I could probably just stick the 345 vin plate on and be done with it
