ALL RV's will have a glue on VIN sticker that will show the OEM Month/year of final build. Trailers it is outside on a left sidewall Motorhomes van be anywhere. Tiffin installs on the hinge side of the exterior of the entrance door. Others in the Dash drivers area sidewall or in an overhead bin in the drivers cockpit. But, they ALL have one, finding it can be a chore. Doug

What evidence do you have that RVs built before Covid began were more reliable than RVs built after Covid began? This seems similar to the hysterical fear of trucks and automobiles built on Mondays or Fridays.

We purchased a used class A a couple of years ago and had no issues getting both chassis and house build dates with vin #, there were a couple of stickers in our rig that also contained various build info. With your 2020 class A being built rather recently getting all the specifics on that rig including all options should be an easy task, our used class A was a bit older but was simple to access records with vin in hand.

My coach serial number indicates the build completion date but there is also a tag with the date behind the driver seat.

Coach build date and chassis build date will not be the same. You could have a 2022 RV built on a 2020 or 2021 chassis for example.

Thor built rigs will have a sticker at the driver's left sidewall with on and off assembly line dates. The Ford incomplete vehicle stick has the chassis dates.

Personally I wouldn't worry about it. My 2006 was thrown together in the middle of the housing bobble when everyone was flush with cash thru refinancing their homes and buying flashy toys and my build dates seem to confirmation of my speculation. April chassis build completed and the coach leaves the Four Winds factory in June two moths later. Even being a repo my rig has been pretty easy to maintain and has never had me headed home early. My one break down I fixed the next day in the driveway.
