What year is this prospective MH?

There is Class B+ I might be interested in. It is listed as a 2021 Ford Transit. I checked the VIN and the year digit is " J", which is 2018. There is another date on the specification plate that indicates the build year is 2020. What could be the reason for the difference in dates. I do realize that chassis might be purchased by the manufacturer and used in a later model MH which would account for some difference. I pointed this discrepancy out to the dealer and the salesperson confirms the chassis is 2020 but the MH is a 2021.

Usually the chassis is a year older than the motorhome.

If the VIN matches a 2018 then the chassis was made in 2018. Don't ever believe a mh salesperson.
Check with Ford on the chassis.
