    Torque T26 Vin Location On Frame??

    Good afternoon,
    I hope everyone is doing well! Stupid question. Does anyone know the VIN location on the frame? I'm not talking the the factory stickers that show the VIN. I have looked everywhere on the front A frame. I'm assuming its stamped? etched in some metal?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Years ago, when we would get a trailer built or we purchased one that had to be liscenced other than for agricultural purposes, the trailer would be assigned a vin number by the state and that number had to be stamped into the frame with a die tool.
    I think that this is no longer required but instead the manufacturer of the trailer is now required to affix a label to the left side of the trailer forward of the axles.

    Commercially made trailers have a permanent VIN stamped into the metal of the frame as well as a sticker that gives the number as well as date produced. I believe the stamped number can be found near the kingpin. Home-built trailers have always used an assigned number that is issued by the state.

    Maybe it's there on the frame, but I doubt it. Lippert ships the frame to Heartland and all the frame info is on a paper sticker applied to the frame. Heartland applies the VIN # plaque to the side wall of the trailer up front relatively late in the manufacturing process. I can't see the frame being stamped either at Lippert or at Heartland.

    Re: Torque T26 Vin Location On Frame??

    Well as always you guys are the best. The reason I'm asking is because I tore off the yellow stickers etc after buying the Torque. I thought I could relocate them. Nope. So heartland sent me new one and it shows a 2020 manufacture date... after owning 2 heartland camper's I'm jumping ship to grand momentum 320g 5th wheel. I have had NO complaints about heartland since 2006. I wish torque made a lighter 5th wheel toyhauler like the 320g.
    Thanks again. Steve
