How to determine the age of a camper

I have the Trail Mite, but the data plates have no year on them.
The California plate by the door has
M 1372 S 0515
RV 14716 R___________
Any ideas??

I'll take a guess, but I could be totally wrong.

M = model => 13' made in 1972
S = Serial # => 0515
RV = Manufacturer => 14716

Does your plate look like this?

It would be interesting to hear from people with CA compliance plates what their numbers are. And what they know about the numbers on their trailers.

What does the Title state? Go to a DMV and have them look it up.

Depends on if the camper is a he or a she... you never ask a female her age.
