blackflamevt is an unknown quantity at this point
Vin number (how to read it)

So I have guessing a 80s something 15 foot camper that I need to figure out the year for a bill of sale. Is there a link to reading the vin?

There's no online VIN decoder available for Sunline VINs.

On late 1980 and newer Sunlines with 17 digit VINS, the 10th digit from the left is the year:
A=1980
B=1981
C=1982
D=1983
E=1984
F=1985
G=1986
H=1987
J=1988
K=1989
etc.

X=1999
Y=2000
1=2001
2=2002
etc.

Sometimes I've seen people buy trailers and sellers tell them the trailer is much newer than it really is. So it's possible the trailer is a few years older if it doesn't have a 17 digit VIN. 70s Sunlines had 5-7 digit serial numbers, which preceded VINs.
