VIN location and number on driver's windshield

We are new to Newmar having just purchased a 2004 Newmar Dutch Star 4025. We are looking for the VIN number and also wondering about the number on the top of the driver's side windshield. Could anyone give us a lead on where we might find the VIN? Also what is that number on the windshield? Thank you.

Chasis number along with the Newmar serial number should be on the weight sticker . Check a cupboard door.

Number visible though the windshield is the chassis VIN.

For the Newmar build # you need to find the weight sticker Granite 17 mentioned , no set location , you'll need to search for it.

Mine is on the wall at the back of a kitchen cupboard.

Yeah, mine is on the wall behind the driver's seat also. Big sticker with lots of chassis information, not the metal strip with just the VIN you're used to.

Also be aware that the VIN is associated with the chassis -- not the body. So as far as your department of motor vehicles and insurance company are concerned, you'll either have a Freightliner or a Spartan -- depending on which chassis your Newmar RV has.

But when you need service on the parts of the coach Newmar made, Newmar will want to know what the Newmar Serial number is -- and not the VIN. The Newmar S/N is in a couple of places, but the easiest to find is usually on the back of one of your upper galley cabinet doors. It will be a white piece of paper glued to the backside of the cabinet door.

Yup .... my stickers are located on the wall behind the driver seat .... visible with slide extended. My paint codes are on a sticker in cabinet above kitchen seat. My build sheet is on the wall inside the bedroom closet. Locations vary .... some builders put info on the back of a cabinet mirror.
Once found, take a picture and store it ... my pics are with my insurance papers.

Number on top of drivers side could be the POs NKK (Newmar Kountry Klub) sticker.

HavingABlast ; good catch , I didn't re-read the original post well enough and thought the OP was talking about the number plate visible " through " the windshield. Not a decal " on " the windshield.
