Hello mmeyer;

Thanks for helping in my problem. Yes it is a VT I would suspect since there is a VT in the middle of 8 numbers. The seller told me it was a CT which he said it stood for Camper Trailer but I suspect he is mistaken.

Could you tell me what VT stands for?

Yes, you may put me where I belong in the forum as I am just beginning my journey here.

Thanks and God bless; Bill & Family

Thanks Tom;

I agree with Bob; you are fast at finding things. Sometimes it takes me days. I guess I don't know how to query the right words.

So now I know we have a Vacationer Trailer with the 2 middle digits being VT.

Thanks again; Bill & Family

Mine ends in VT8158 which I believe are the same numbers stamped on the SS plate on the frame. Have no idea where the rest of the letters and numbers came from

mmeyer and all;

Do all 16' VT's have 17 total numbers on the title with only the last 6 being the same?

Bill

Only have 16 in my vin number. Is your rear bumper aluminum or fiberglass? Mine seems to be slightly different than the others. Fiberglass bumper, no sticker on outside and a slightly longer tongue with rubber mounts for some unknown purpose.

Well, that makes is a VT very likely. They came with hydraulic brakes.

Welcome to the family. We have a VT too.

U Haul international has a numbering system that has Equipment Serial Numbers that are the 10 digit numbers you are looking at. The first four are the Fleet #. The next two letters are what it is and the last 4 are the same as the last 4 of the Vehicle Identification Number. The Serial Number is what U Haul uses in our system to track and rent the equipment. The VIN # is used to register the equipment. On my CT the stickers inside and on e left front of the body say that the Serial # is the VIN.'so it can be very confusing. Other owners of VTs might be able to tell you where they found their vin plates. It should have the long # stamped into it and will most likely start with 14HU. Good lunch getting it sorted out.

We have 17 digits on our VIN, but there is no VT in it. Instead, ours ends in GT181196. I'll have to check the welded plate to see what it says. Maybe it's just a typing error somewhere in the registration chain.

As many different locations that there were sold from there is no telling. Mine has a plate welded to the tongue with 16 or 17 digits. But the last 6 don't match there. Makes me wonder if there were just assigned a serial number until they were sold and then the shop getting them ready welded on the long number to sale them. That would account for the odd 17 digit numbers.

Maine registration- non resident. Therese Cahill Low Dir. Constituent services, Off of the Sec. of State, 148 Statehouse Station Augusta, ME 04333-0148 ph: 207 626 8400 It is my understanding that you do not need to be a resident, also, very inexpensive. Best of luck. I have the same U Haul situation but live in a non title state. But I know it will haunt me one day. you could get Mary and Bobs stamps .
