Welcome mrb54812 and congrats on your new Sunny!

I am not sure if this is the case on all model years but on my 1987 the VIN is on the driver side of the A-frame as well as a metal plate underneath the sill of the entry door. If not there report back. One of the senior members may be able to tell you where else to look.

Happy camping!

Tommie

Try doing a search using the forum's custom search. I have seen threads discussing different locations for the VIN.

Hi mrb54812

It should be a metal plate with about 4 screws. Remove the screws to remove the metal plate. It should be under there. If not, SunlineFan maybe able to give other places to look. There are some threads on here where he was helping others. I will try to find some at lunch.


Thanks,
Tommie

Yes, that's it. Not technically a VIN, but rather a serial number. Formal 17 digit VINs came in late 1980.

It confirms it's a 1978, and #2301 built that year.

On a 1978, it should be stamped into the steel coupler on the left side, not on the aluminum plate as Tommie said. That didn't come until the 17 digit VINs. It'll be hard to see if the coupler/frame has been painted over many times.

So I can title it with that number? Because it doesn't even have a license plate holder on rear taillight

Yes, absolutely. It should have been in the past. You might want to go to a police station for a VIN check, so they can verify that VIN. Maybe they can help direct you on how to do a title search to see if a title was previously issued with that, so it can be transferred to your name.

There should have been two tabs below the left taillight for the plate. If the lights weren't replaced, the tabs probably just broke off. They are plastic and that happens pretty easy.
