Hello to the forum......i'm new!!!!
I've posted on PC's forum a few times and thought I would move over to T'n'T and have a look here.

My first question to you all is, how can you tell the age of your caravan?

I have a Fleetwood Colchester 1150 approx 1992. Its not CRIS registered. Can I tell the year from the chassis number ?

Many thanks.
Chris.

Hi and welcome Chris.
You should be able to tell the year of your 'van by using the first two digits of the chassis number. This is not 100% though as there are some variations around.

Easiest way is to check with Fleetwood - or post a picture and I will have a go at identifying it!

Hi Chris

The CRIS scheme was introduced for the 1992 season.

If your Fleetwood is a '92 model most windows will be etched with a 17 digit VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). The 10th digit will indicate the year, on a 1992 model the 10th digit would be an 'N'. :book:

If you have no etching on the windows then your Fleetwood is pre-'92. If you post up the serial / chassis number I'll confirm the year for you.

Thankyou for all the replies. After reading your post's and some investigating myself i believe the van to be a '91.

Regards.
