Transmission Confusion

We have committed to buying a 2016 HR Vacationer. I had taken pictures of some of the information on the wall by the driver. I noticed the chassis was a 2015, so I am thinking I don't have the 6 speed. Disappointing, but we like the coach enough that it isn't a deal breaker. But today I ran across a post that said if it shows 1, 2, 4, D that it is a 6 speed, and I have a picture showing that pattern on the dash. So do I have a 5 speed or 6 speed?

This is what my dusty 5 speed gear indicator looks like. No 4 anywhere.

My 2016 I bought in Sept 2015 has the 6-speed, it was one of the first to be found on the lots.

Yes if the shift indicator has a 4 its a 6-speed, if its a has a 3 its a 5-speed.

I just figured out some of my confusion. I had pictures of the specs on this motor home and another one we had looked at intermingled. That and VIN Decoder - Free Online VIN Check, Validation and VIN Lookup is coming up with bogus information.

So the VIN is actually a 2016 number, but the incomplete vehicle manufactured by date is 11/15 Anyhow it sounds like I do have a 6 speed.
