Smile some kind of 32ft trailer

Howdy, I picked up a 32ft RV for a song and dance and I'm still trying to identify it ???? the biggest reason is because I want to get one of those canvas awnings and attach it if possible the VIN on the side is 4x4TWDH256P100839 but so far that's all I've been able to find is there any other place I can look to get a Model Number ? Thanks in advance

Sounds like mine. All I know about mine is that it is a Forest River Wildwood. FEMA Trailer your VIN starts with same numbers

yes it's definitely a FEMA Tailor but I can't find anyone who can provide me a book, Users Manual, advice, or even as much as a brochure on it. How about You ?

It's a 2006 model and usually the 4x4 means a toyhauler.

I'd contact FR directly. The addresses & phone numbers are here somewhere...

Being a Fema trailer it could have been made in any of the FR plants. It will not have any brand name on it. Owners manuals are a joke and not worth the time and effort they spend on printing them. Go get a list of all the appliances including model and serial numbers. Then go the each of the manufacturers web sites and download the manuals for your particular models.
BTW my fiver VIN starts with 4X4 and it is NOT a tow hauler.

I have to chime in here, and also mention the fact that my V lite has a vin beginning with 4x4 as well- NOT a toy hauler, either!! I think it possibly identifies the frame manufacturer, but that's a guess. Also, DITTO on the owners manual- big waste of paper and ink. EXTREMELY generic to all campers. There is a link on here to print in pdf format a generic 04 manual, if you really must. Good luck getting any useful info. out of it. Almost any and all questions about operating procedures and tips can and probably will be answered by the many fine folks on this forum. Just ask away!! Randy

I think you're best bet on something like that is to just ask any specific questions you have here, and we can help as best we can. There is an unbelievable amount of expertise here.

As for your awning, I don't believe there is an awning made out there that is specific to any single brand of RV. I would think you need to see how long you want your awning to be, then go to the awning manufacturer websites and see what they have to offer. I expect you can even call them and talk to them directly to get more specific information.

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.
