Found it----------VIN #

Been looking for my VIN # on my trailer. Used a wire brush on a drill to take the paint off and found it. I plan on taking it down to the bare metal with paint stripper then put a clear coat over it to better see it. Located on the door side of the scamp about 6" back from the coupler.
Hard to read with black paint around it.Click image for larger version

I do believe Scamp has put the VIN where you've found it since the very beginning of manufacturing... that's where the VIN is stamped on my 23 year old trailer. Good call! I've some coupler changes to make pretty soon. I'm going to add one of these between the the frame rails on the A frame. https://www.koolrides.com/catalog/pr...372ae24d9cae3b A Harbor Freight stamping set and I should be good to go

Glad you found it take lots of pictures for your personal archive!

Sanded frame down to bare metal,put clear coat on, then taped off the numbers and painted it black.

It looks like the person who stamped it on there had a few too many beers at lunch or was hungover in the morning. Not exactly a neat and tidy job!

That's what I thought, numbers and letters are all over the place. They have the year stamped like this 9183 should be 1983.

Or could that be: 9 / 83 for September of 1983? If it is 9183, the person stamping it did not use the numeral "1" as he did everywhere else.
