We Can't Register Our RV With The Because Of An Erroneous VIN Number On The Title
by Joyce Mosher
We bought a 1979 Fleetwood Pace Arrow. All of the plates on the vehicle reflect the VIN as 14V044119..., yet the title says CPS3793314504. A title from a previous owner registered in another state references this number as the S/N and also reflects the VIN.

Oklahoma refuses to license the vehicle because the ???Fleetwood ID/SN??? cannot be located on the vehicle to identify it with the title. Where would this number plate be located?
Oklahoma DMV has confiscated the previous title and kept the fees paid for title and refuses to issue a title until we can match the title to this number affixed to the vehicle. They refuse to validate this information with the previous title chain. PLEASE HELP! What is that number and where can we find it on the RV?
ANSWER: Greetings Joyce thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
WOW, what a mess!!! I will tell you up front this problem is a little bit out of my area of expertise. I am going to assume that you have contacted the person you bought your RV from to see if they could help straighten this out.
As far as the model number and VIN number locations on your Motorhome, they will vary by year, model and manufacturer of your RV. The first thing I would do is Contact Fleetwood RV and see if they can tell you exactly where you can find the VIN and Model number on your RV.

As far as rectifying all of this with the DMV, I would suggest that you talk to a Supervisor at the DMV office and see if they can give you some suggestions on what other steps you can take to get this RV registered.
I also hope that one of our visitors might be able to jump in here and give you some advice on what you should do.
I am sorry that I could not be of more help on this issue.
