Rockwood 8285WS - Is it a 2010 or 2011 model

Is it a 2010 or 2011 model
Hi everyone.
This is a great weath of information here and I hope someone could answer my question.

I'm considering buying a 5th wheel and considering a Rockwood model 8285WS.

The question I have is that the outside sticker says it was built March 2010 but the dealer has it advertised as a 2011 model.
Does this sound correct?
Is their a way to really tell by the VIN #?

You help is greatly appreciated.

Iggy ready to hit the road.

Check the 10th digit of the VIN and check with this chart:

I still think it is interesting that a trailer manufacture March 2010 can be considered and sold as a 2011.
Has anyone else notice this trend?

So when do the 2012 model arrive?

Just like cars that come out in the fall with next years numbers, RV manufacturers are doing the same thing, but earlier in the year. The can advertise "new 2011" now and hopefully everybody will flock to the showrooms.

Personally, I think it is a bit ridicules, and would like to see some regulations concerning that practice.
