Question 2020 Models

Does anyone know when the new Freelander motorhome models for 2020 will come out? Iím very curious because I purchased a 2019 21QB in October, and am wondering if I got a 2018 instead. The chassis is definitely a 2017, and came with a 2017 ownerís manual. Also, the tag attached to the keys I received said 2018. Furthermore, thereís a tag on the driverís side door has a date of 4/9/2018. I understand that the chassis can be a different year, I just want to make sure I actually got a 2019.

Thanks,
Kristan

The year should be on your purchase papers and on the registration of the vehicle.

Your situation is not unusual. It depends on when the chasis was actually made, when the Freelander body was made and when it was actually completed and registered.

Did you get it registered at DMV? What did they registered it as, sounds like a 2018 from what I just read. My Chassis is a 2017 with a 2018 body attached, which is pretty normal, what does your paper work say for the title, it should be on there also...hope that helps

Just thought of something that might help, call Coachmen, and give them the vin# they should be able to tell you what date it came off the production line, did you order it from a stealer I mean dealer? Go to Coachmen for the answer...

I did get the motorhome from a dealer. Believe it or not, it has yet to be titled. I’ve had to get ugly about it and now they want several thousand more dollars from me because “the tax in sales agreement is an estimate.” This in spite of the fact that they have a store in GA. My MH was at their NC store, and I picked it up from their TN store.
I emailed Coachman about the year on Thursday and am waiting to hear what they say.

Look at your RV title, the tenth spot is the year code. H=2017, J=2018, K=2019

If you are ever in the Goshen area drive over to Middlebury, Indiana and look at the HUNDREDS of chassis and cab units sitting, waiting to be built out. It stands to reason that some sit there for long periods and get titled by FR as a later year unit.

I had a hassle from South Carolina, where I bought mine from the dealer was "Boat n RV" They over charged me sales tax for Virginia, the DMV caught it, I had to get a rebate back from them, it took them over a month to file the correct paper work just to Virginia. Had at least 3 or 4 calls to them. Then I found out another member who bought there had to wait 6 mos. For them to get there paper work in. So I understand what you are saying.
