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.

      Go for a minimum of 100W even 150 they are not a lot bigger either  We have a 150W on the motorhome and had a 100W on the caravan  the motorhome has 3 x 110 AH of batteries in it's power bank like has been said above the controller is the most important piece ours is quite old but is functioning so at present not being touched but will be updated soon  As for fixing there are lots of kits on the market some specifically for each panel  Our caravan panel was fitted by an engineer and total cost was £450 including everything for a second battery but not the battery where as buying the stuff in to fit my self was almost as expensive

      Rang the insurance company today about the tracker - and whilst it's an advanced piece of kit the insurance company doesn't give it approved status so we don't get any discount for having it fitted      Steph is not happy
