Why would you be surprised if the MH is a 2007 model, it's registered as per the Federal Law.

If you follow the link I posted to the RVIA document you will find contact info on getting it correct. Might be a good idea to follow though ASAP.

Mostly surprised the motor was a 2005.

At least with cars, you can be a "model year ahead" in that as of January 1, you can sell vehicles of the next model year -- for example, January 1, 2012 was the first day you could sell a 2013 model.

I Totally agree the coach "Should" be registered in the year it is sold and have nothing to do with the chassis. I bought a new 2000 Holiday rambler Endeavor with a 1998 chassis and it was sold and titled as a 2000. I have lived in different states and owned 7 MH and would never accept purchasing a MH and having it sold as one model year and titled a year older "NEVER" I find it hard to believe anyone would accept that answer as it being , normal.

Recently purchased 2010 motor home. When we got home and registered it, the registration said 2011. Come to find the unit was built in May of 2010 on a chassis that was built April 2010. Tiffin changes production year in June. Freightliner changes in April

My class B Sprinter is a 2012 built in a 2011 Van. I received the title stating it was a 2011 and went to the Iowa DMV to get it changed. No problem, the DMV changed it to a 2012 based on Winnebago's Certificate of Origin. They apologized for their error and said the title clerk loaded at the van documentation to determine year and should have used the Winnebago C of O!

What a mess. 4 pages and I still don't know what is right. I will say one thing though, to me, the chassis year really does matter. Ford made major changes in 2006. I wanted those changes. If I thought I was buying a 2006 and found out it as a 2005, I would blow a gasket. Of course, I knew what to look for in this case to prevent this issue but others may not know. This guy sounds like he got hosed big time. No matter what, it is a 2010 chassis. Parts, insurance, etc., it will always be a 2010. Run a carfax at sales, it will still be a 2010. When he goes to sell it, it will still be a 2010. Hey OP, why don't you post the VIN for us?

Yup its not uncommon at all... do I agree with it ? No... but thats neither here nor there. My first Foretravel was a 1981 on a 1979 Dodge chassis. It would be great if, like the auto industry, they could say " we're going to build XXX cars this year" and pick up a chassis just when they needed. HOWEVER... in the motorhome business it doesn't happen that way. They order the chassis by the truck/railroad car load and use them until they're gone, even if its 2 years later. Is the OP getting "hosed" like Pirate so eloquently put it ? Not really.....relax, take a deep breath, enjoy your coach and have the peace of mind that in 10 yrs, it wont matter.

If the chassis and engines didn't change from year to year, that would be fine but the fact is that they sometimes do and sometimes those changes can mean a big differences when ordering parts, getting service what have you. Since most coach items are outsourced to various manufacturers, I would think it would be more important to age the vehicle according to the chassis and engine. I have a 99 F-53 with a Triton. That is altogether different from the 98's which still had a 460 V8 in many of them. If I had a 98 chassis and engine registered as a 99 because of the coach, that could be confusing and I am already confused enough.

But here again, that's not the law. The MCO is what the registration goes by under Federal Law. I don't understand why that's so hard to grasp on the forum.
That's why you need to order chassis/engine parts by the chassis VIN and not the registered year of the completed vehicle.
