What do the inset numbers mean?

What do the numbers stamped onto the AS plate mean? The upper numbers and letters J 05 G C, and the lower numbers and letters 131A4 and J1645?

Thanks much!

The upper numbers are production codes.
The lower numbers show what your trailer is.
Using the lower numbers, I see you have a 1974 31foot Sovereign, International trim level, center bath with twin beds in the rear, the 1645th trailer off the line in Jackson Center, Ohio.

The bottom numbers and letters mean 1= International trim, 31= 31 feet long, A= center bath twin bed, 4= 1974 model year, and J = built in Jackson Center Ohio, and the rest is the sequential serial number. Don't know what the top numbers mean.

The upper numbers are production line code numbers.

The lower numbers are the actual serial number.

Only the lower numbers have any value, especially when purchasing parts.
