Chassis VIN

I am in the process of buying a 2015 Solera. I checked the VIN and it belonged to 2010 chassis. Is this normal?

Usually 1 or 1 1/2 years old but not 5 years old chassis.
I'd research a lot more.
What does the vehicle registration show from the dealer?

Re-check the VIN # and dbl check the number in the vin position that correlates to the mgr. Year. If you're talking about an MBS chassis, I believe it was either the eighth or ninth position, that drives the chassis mfg year. There are older posts in the "solera sub forum " that previously talked on this topic.

I think this is correct - 10th position of current VIN numbers corresponds to the year. For my 2015 Solera the chassis VIN (starting "WDAPF") has an "E" for 2014 while the motorhome VIN (starting "4X4MD") has an "F" for 2015.

Thanks, Mike. Age is a wonderful thing! Hey OP did "we" help you out, please reply as I will not be able to sleep until I for one know, that an MB chassis sat around that long on FR's lot. They must have "lost it".
