When time is right I will consider a Class A built in 2020 as long as I can determine that the date of mfr of the house was prior to 3/20(start of COVID shutdowns). Are there stickers on a Class A that show the month and year of a fully completed motorhome like a car? tks

I'm curious, do you think the Coved shutdown would have somthing to do with quality or contamination?

I have never found any stickers on my Class A's like that. If there is the manual and some paperwork on warranties on various components, maybe you could pick up a date from that? Or from service records?

There should be a sticker in the rig for weight that normally has the build date.

Look on the wall beside the drivers seat.
Ask to see the Manufactures Statement of Origin {MSO}.

But if it's only a second stage MSO wouldn't that have only the completed coaches' build date, not the chassis date? Many first stage incompletes MSO's are replaced with a second stage MSO for finial builds. If the final build MSO didn't carry over the chassis build date (not required) all the second stage is mandated to carry over is the VIN which just decodes the "year".

OP asked for coach manufacturer date.
If someone wants the chassis build date, would need to use chassis VIN number to get that information. Chassis dealer would or at should be able to get that information.

Obviously the chassis would have been built before the coach was completed so the first stage MSO really doesn't matter.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

If you are looking for a 2 (or 3 by the time you buy it) year old MH most of the bugs should have been worked out by then. Especially if it has any miles on it. As with any used coach, at that point it's probably more about how it was taken care of and things sorted out than original build quality. Some of this will also depend on whether you are looking at entry level or higher end and brand.
