Where is the 1976 Argosy Vin Number

I purchased a 1976 Argosy 28 Ft Center Bath. I have found the tag that say's MFD by Argosy with the date and Type Trailer number. But can't find the actual VIN number. Where do I find this specifically?

The Trailer number is 23A6v1964 the manufactured date is 3 76

I need to apply for title

New to the forums so I appreciate any help you can provide.

If you got the 23A6v1964 off a small plate at the front of the trailer, that is your VIN. The plate has weight rating, date of manufacture, and serial number, and is behind the propane tanks.

The really, really, official VIN is on the underside of the tongue frame rail (under the propane tanks) probably on the curb side. It may be paint filled or quite rusty, but it is there. May take a rotary wire brush to bring it out. It should be the same # you have already found.

Thanks

Did some further research and the VIN does match. I will look on the A Frame where I'm sure the number is and clean it up.

Thanks. Now the real fun begins. Rehab!

It's possible the second number on your plate may be worn down. If it's a 28footer, it should start with 28 rather than 23.

Here's the numbering system so you can decode it
(But you won't have "digit 1" since it is an argosy.)

1) There should be a VIN tag riveted to the front of the trailer (possibly road side lower).

2) There should be a VIN number stamped on trailer tongue (A-frame); on top; curb side, near the body. You may need a wire brush to remove paint and rust.
