2015 AI registered as 2014

I purchased this August a 2015 interstate based on 2014 mercedes sprinter chasis.
I just noticed on the registration paper , DMV registered it as 2014 model.
Anybody had similar experience with this and what did you do to correct the model year.
Thanks

It is correct. The chassis model year is the one that counts.

My RV insurance record, it is a 2015 model.
Just in case an accident happen ie total loss, i am worried my insurance will appraise it as 2014 , not 2015

All (or most/many)RV conversions are done the same way. It is common. Insurance companies are surely aware of it.
You are registering a 2014 Mercedes.
You are insuring a 2015 Airstream.

Get the title fixed and corrected. If you ever sell or trade it in the future, it cannot be sold as a 2015, therefore it will be worth less.

I just got the license renewal on mine today.

It has always been registered as a 2005, as that is the Sprinter Chassis year, although is a 2006 Interstate......and I think that's the way it's done.

Your purchase paperwork verifies the Airstream model year.

We had this happen on our first Roadtrek. When I sold it, I was explaining how it was actually a year newer. The problem is the DMV/MVA staff does not understand how to register RV's and will always defer to the chassis VIN. Since then, I go to a title service that charges a nominal fee so our last Roadtrek and our Interstate are registered to the correct build year.

Funny thing that our first Roadtrek had no problem being insured by USAA but we've since learned that they don't insure RV's and farm it out to Progressive who we insure the Interstate with now.

My 2012 Interstate is on a 2011 Sprinter. I got a knowledgeable DMV clerk, who registered it as a 2012 Interstate, using the 2011 Mercedes VIN. But I actually got passed from clerk to clerk for a while first, because most of them had no clue how to handle a vehicle with TWO Manufacturer's Certificates of Origin.

Mine is a 2006 chassis registered as a 2007 Interstate. This should create lots of confusion if I ever go to sell it as the year over year chassis changes were significant.

Thinking about this some more last night.....my registration is for the Dodge Sprinter chassis, which made sense at the time and still does.

I have registration information, specifications, etc. (not sure what you call them), received at the time of purchase, in separate packets, for the Sprinter and for the Airstream Interstate.

I can't fathom how Illinois DMV registration changes what I have or what it would be should I ever sell........a 2006 Airstream Interstate on a 2005 Dodge Sprinter chassis.



I have both VIN numbers recorded and accessible for service providers, sometimes needing one or the other, and sometimes both.

When I owned an IS, the dealer told me it would be registered as an AS. The dmv could not do that even with the proper paperwork from AS and the dealer. The dealer here eventually I think straightened all of this out, but by then I had traded it in. Should be registered as an AS. Large mh are not registered by their chassis numbers. Jim
