Don: I haven't signed up on the Uhaul site, and in less than two months we'll be camping for three months, SC and GA until late January, then Florida for Feb. I would not be a good moderator.

Mr. Tom,
Quite by accident, I discovered mine which was painted over probably from the factory. A beautiful VIN plate with VIN UHaul Markings and date of manufacture in s/s welded to the frame! This is in addition to the front lower left mylar decal they applied. I confirmed it's location on my second CT and I suspect it is is the same location on all the CTs and VTs.

I promise to not keep it secret too long but this deserves a little suspense, would not you agree? Once I let it out the chase is finished...

Mr. Bob,
Thanks for volunteering to be a moderator...(just kidding)
But, I really thank you for the excellent info on what to use for the side window installation, it is very appreciated!

Mr. Bob,
I'm off myself for a month or so. Part of it includes the Cherokee Rally. I got the CT all shined up and ready to roll! Now, if I can find my retirement place, up around there, I'll really be a HAPPY camper! Hope all your camping is enjoyable...

Don: I know Jane & Greg are doing that rally, and one other Uhaul but I haven't heard who that is.

I found mine several months ago when I was under coating mine. On my VT it is just black painted steel with a VT followed by a four digit number on the first line then property of Uhaul not to be sold on the next line and what I asume to be a production date of 4 85 on the bottom line. My VIN sticker is inside the door has a lot more numbers but ends with the VT and 4 digit number stamped into the steel plate. I also have an aluminum plate on the axle . it is a Henschen axle with a load capacity of 2500 lbs. Henschen made axles for airstream but went out of business several years ago.

Mr. Mike,
Unless the VTs were done differently, which is very possible, you may have another s/s plate as well...

Don't think so, I Hand painted almost every square inch of the underside with a special Urethane paint after I caulked all the seams around the frame and wheelwells, the plate was on the inboard left rear support member behind the wheel about 2 feet in front of the secret tube. I found another plate up front on the right side but it just said property of UHaul not to be sold. My VT may be a little different as my tongue is different than Cindy and Kevins and I have a fiberglass bumper.

About 1" in diameter 12" long welded to the frame on the back driver side of my trailer. Has plastic plugs. Reported to contain sensitive information about the trailer suitable to identify it in the event of theft or survival after a nuclear war. Mine was empty. Then again it could be an Urban Myth.

Uhaul windows

This thread has been quiet for a few days, I'm curious as to how everyone is doing with their window installation.

I can't add much except to say that my rebuilt windows finally quit leaking after I caulked the outer weatherstrip, so my new extra window is safely in storage.

Are you convinced that the alternate side window weatherstrip that you bought is a good choice?

I'm happy with the AS1456 weatherstrip that I bought. The only thing is that it is a little narrower than the original. Tom, do you have any of the new weatherstrip that you used left over, if you do I'll send you a little piece of the 1456 so you can compare them.
Bob
