And by the Federal Law that is incorrect. Fortunate for you though when you go to sell/trade unless someone knows the law and checks on it!

My previous rig was a Class C, 2009 on a 2006 chassis. This happened during the big turn down in economy in 07-08. Was registered as a 2009.

Hi Mr D,
I thought it was a bit confusing too but then I realized I don't make my states Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) rules, I just have to follow them. On mine it does not really matter as it is a 2011 chassis with a 2011 engine and a 2011 house. It is registered as a 2011 Ford E450 cab chassis which is really strange because they actually had to see it.They also don't call them RV's, what ours are called are auto homes.

This is common in the industry. Manufacturers stock many chassis's and some just are a layover for the next years coach body.

And has been for a long time. Our GMC/coachmen was registered in 1980 but according to the VIN in the cab, it was built in mid 1979... The cab/chassis was queued up for 6 months waiting for the coach build..
