I finally found the serial number on my Jubilee, but still can't tell the year. Can anyone tell me what to look for in the number to tell the year?

[b]If your trailer was built during or after 1980, and you have a [b]17 digit VIN, or Vehicle Identification Number, the 10th digit is the date code: Model Year Encoding

However, 17 digit VIN's for trailers were created in 1980. Before that, they were just serial numbers, and different manufacturers coded them differently, or not!
My Fiber Stream was built in 1978, before 17 digit VIN's, but the date is obvious: (serial number= FS78 1041)

I haven't a clue how Trillium did it.

I bet if you checked with Tom Young at Trillium RV, he would be able to tell you

Mine is in the mid three hundreds ( I wouldn't dare put the serial on here) and was built in 1980.
