I spent yesterday evening reading through all the pages of the thread and the list on the front page doesn't appear to match all those listed....however that could be because members have PM'ed the folks keeping the list, or MH have been sold and new owners are not part of the Forum.

There are a lot of VIN listed in individual messages (and the messages often don't contain the complete VIN just the year, length, model and production number so that the VIN could be assumed), so I don't envy anyone trying the build and maintain a working directory.

Didn't see it on the list so here is a new one SN# 1A9JGAU36HJ010911. So I'm guessing it's the 10911th made?

Ok.... So I want to play along too ! we have an 85 324 we just purchased in Nov 14 !!

While I do have the VIN in the coach(its currently having its first routine service with us)... I DONT know where the dang metal plate is with such information ... This was almost a MAJOR pain in getting it registered in Az... as they need to see that plate... (fortunately... I had a friendly inspector)...

Can anyone tell me where that Silly plate is located in a 345 ?

Ours is on the left vertical pillar inside the engine compartment (behind the front hood). A plate with stamped numbers....

The Airstream number doesn't provide a lot of information. Your number is broken down below:

M = Motorhome
28 = 28í
D = Double
9 = Model year (1979)
V = Versailles, Ohio (production facility)
5165 = Production number

I can't help you with your Chevy vin but you can search for information on any number of websites.

Dave, were you asking about the Argosy list or the Classic list?

I've only been keeping up with the Argosy info.

as for as the production number, does this mean is was the 5165 made that year? I guess that is my question? Thanks for your help.

I don't believe that's the case. See my list of Argosy numbers in the next post.

my OLD 79 28' WAS 5143, my friend Curtis 28' in Alaska was 5142. I think they started at 5000 in 79. So yours could be #165, finished Friday, 13th at 5:01 pm, just kidding....
