Manufacture # and registr.# don't match

Just wondering if anyone knows why the year stamped on the manufacturing plate on our trailer says 77 but the registration says it's a 78.
Thanks.

The date of manufacture, 1977, and the model year are often different because manufacturing often starts before the year end.

Note that car model years are available in September or October of the year before so the date of manufacture for those early cars will be a year before

This is our situation. We have a 76 model that was manufactured in December of 75. This is a common phenomenon in many industries.
