I have a similar plate on my '78 Tioga. I think it is just a basic plate they use for placing the stamped information.

Johnnyd....thanks for sharing your work on the vintage RV. They are so awesome to see once they're refurbed. Looks like you've got your hands full with a project for a while but you're off to a great start. Keep it up and I'm sure we'd all like to see what can be done with the hard work and brain power. Thanks again!

Johnny,
Dodge used that ID plate up until they stopped making the motorhome chassis as part of the Chrysler bankruptcy situation. They also used that ID plate for other commercial/truck chassis identification. Please understand that Dodge only made the chassis. Dodge did not make the house portion. Manufacturers like Winnebago, Champion, Titan, Sports Coach, Vogue, Travco, Empress, Islander, Swinger, Etc. bought the chassis from Dodge and built the house on it. The Dodge ID plate is only reffering to the chassis portion that Dodge made. The VIN number on the plate only refers to the chassis itself, not the house (box). All house (box) information would be covered under the MH manufactures documentation. While it appears the RV manufacturer (or a previous owner) placed the Dodge/Mopar monicure on the front it is not the outfit that made the final RV. In your pictures, there appears to be some sort of lettering above the word Dodge on the front. What does it say? You need to know who made the box portion. The Dodge chassis VIN can not be used to tell you anything about the house portion.

Dodge only produced the 318 with a 2 barrel BBD Carter carb in the MH chassis.
Dodge used a Holley 4150/4160 4 barrel on the 413 in the MH chassis
Dodge used a Thermoquad for the 440-3 in the MH chassis
Dodge used a Holley 2245 2 barrel on the 360 in the MH chassis

Vanguard went out of business in 1987.
Motorhome Manufacturers

Wayfarer would be the model of your rig.
Wayfarer by Vanguard.

I doubt you will find much about this rig. Look up mfg name for appliance information
Here is a tidbit of info: 1973 Wayfarer Motorhome RV Ad | eBay

Looks very simular to yours.
