Determining The Year Of My Class A Motorhome

8 posts in this topic

Is the year of a Motor Home determined by the chassis build date or the coach build date?

We have a Damon Intruder purchased as a 2003,but when I went to price it on NADA most of the options on my coach were not listed for a 2003. They were shown on the 2004.

Yep, only the title counts. A coach can have a chassis that is nearly 2 years older than the date it's titled. RV manufacturers are even allowed to put out a 2012 and if it does not sell change it to a 2013. I don't believe a dealer can, but the manufacturer can.

True, only the title counts; but if the motorhome was financed to purchase, he may not have the title. Therefore, the registration is next best.

That would be true for a used vehicle. For a new registration it would be the certificate of origin or similar paper work.

Thanks to all who replied. I guess my dilemma is in trying to determine fair trade in figure or asking price when I decide to move up, how can I fairly do this when some options are not listed in the NADA for one year but are listed in a later year. I hope this makes sense.

Go with the year that matches your vehicle.

WE owned a 5th wheel purchased in May of 2005 but it was listed on the Cert of Origin as a 2006 as they had already changed some designs... it ended up titled as a 2006.
