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.

    • Archie's Camping - August 2016 update
      By Val A · Posted
      There is a new version of Archie's camping available to download now. This time more sites have been deleted and even more new ones added. There has been an emphasis on finding sites in what was the old Yugoslavia so anyone heading in that direction will find lots of useful information.
      Download it here: Archie's Camping August 2016 For a few reasons it hasn't been possible, yet, to announce the new App which has been planned for Windows 10 - but there may be more news soon. Keep sending in information if you find anything that needs to be corrected, or any new sites which aren't in the database.
      Please feel free to share this information on any other camping/caravanning/motorhome/motorcycling forums or on Facebook, or anywhere else that you think it might be useful.
