My 2017 Thor Citation was built on a 2016 Sprinter chassis.

The first 3 digits are "WDA" = W - Germany ; DA - MERCEDES-BENZ TRUCK

11th position is a "9". The VIN decoder says "Plant Information: Ludwigsfelde, Germany".


The first 3 digits of the VIN identifies the country where the VIN was built: 1 = USA, 2 = Canada, J = Japan, K = Korea, etc.

MB trucks with VINS starting with WDx, are all built in Germany, the plant code within that country is the 11th position.

Mr.Goodbar
The vin number on my Mercedes 3500 was changed by Winnebago when they did the conversion to a motorcoach so that now it begins with their first three characters: "WDA". The eleventh character still reflects that it was made in Germany: "P".
I think!

Well for grins I ran my VIN through the decoder, made in Germany as noted, 2017 chassis 2018 V24D.


I noted that the "eleventh" character is erroneous, it is not in that position so the article is not correct but the decoder works to correctly identify where the chassis is made.


The VIN decoder is not correct in identifying the safety components really installed. WGO did not order the chassis with those features.
