Hi everyone,

Searched the site for the compact 2 vin location information. Could have sworn I had seen it a long time ago. I have stumbled on a trailer I am considering buying and would like to know where to look to find the vin. Any owners or others who can tell me where to look? Thanks for the help

On my Compact there is a 3" X 3" aluminium plate that is pop riveted at the bottom of the exterior front wall on the street side. The "vin" is a 4 digit serial number that is stamped near the bottom of the plate. The month and year of manufacture is also stamped on this plate. The plate can be seen at the bottom right of the linked photo.

Thanks Tom.
We did see that plate with the serial # on it and thought that is what should be used.
The problem is that is not the number that is on the owner's title.
The number we are trying to find is CJ1001 - this is what is on the owner's title.

Does anyone have any idea where we might look for another number?
We called our motor vehicle department and they indicated that sometimes the numbers are on the inside of the trailer.

Anyone ever experienced that?
