Check this out: Vehicle Identification Number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1st digit (4) indicates Made in America. Since Randy has a Flagstaff with a x4 number after that, as well as my Surveyor, I will go out on a limb and guess that your trailer is probably a Forest River product. My Trailmanor had a T9 for the 2nd & 3rd digits. As others have stated, the 10th digit indicates your year as 2006.

You might be able to call Forest River and find exactly what you have by your VIN.

Look in the kitchen cabinet over the sink. I also have a FEMA trailer and mine has the id label there. Mine has the date manufactured, what plant, tire sizes... and the product code on the far right top of the label. Though you may have three sets of codes there and the bottom of the three was the one I could translate into my model.

Depending on where yours was stored you may have a bit of work to do. Mine was never lived in (lots of stuff still in plastic). But exterior things need some work. For example the battery tray is almost rusted out, the hubs needed to be repacked, the tires that faced the sun are sun rotted, the LP quick connectors needed to be retrofitted, and my left turn wire in the junction box was not connected.

Good luck. I am having a great time working on mine and if you got as good a deal on yours as I did mine you can sell it for more than you paid for it!

Was out working on the trailer today and I was mistaken. The plate with all the info you want was on the front driver side right near the storage door. The plate over the sink has the final weights and tire sizes.

Another thing that may need to be replaced is the breakaway system. Mine was in pretty bad shape and many states require them.
