There should be a date that it rolled off the line on a white sticker. Like mine says 12/28/11, but when I bought it in Feb 2012 that is the year DMV used. It is called a 2012 model, but built in 2011.

the 23RS was not available until the 2006 model year. They would've started showing up at dealers, in the spring of 2005.

that's what I thought and I contacted forest river today and they said it is a model 2005 but I can't locate the 23RS for 2005.

Kind of like a car built in Dec of 2014 but it still is a 2015 according to the title. Later RJD

exactly, the title is what is used for the trade in or selling..... DMV titled it as 2012.

My CC Silverback is somewhat similar. Try finding information on a 2013 Silverback 29RL. The 29RL was discontinued in early 2012 and I believe mine was one of the last of that model to come off the assembly line and was built in Feb '12.
Our Silverback arrived at the dealer's lot in early March of '12 and even our dealer was surprised when it came in as a 2013.

If you buy a new RV, it's the "Certificate of Origin" generated by the manufacturer that determines the model year. The chassis vin does not determine the year nor does the year it came out of the factory. It's whatever year the manufacturer decides to call it. It's not unusual at all for manufactures to build motorhomes on last years chassis and the "Certificate of Origin" that accompanies the new unit reflects a current year. When that happens, it is titled as the year on the CoO, not the chassis VIN.
PS- now that being said, it does not preclude a DMV clerk incorrectly looking at the chassis VIN and putting the wrong year on the title. This can, however, be corrected with a bit of vigilance and persistence at your local DMV. (Ask me how I know!)

I don't care what State a person lives in DMV is a nightmare to work with or get something corrected...
