Post 1980 VINs

Beginning in 1980*, Serro began using a different 17** digit VIN format, for example, 1SSTT16S2D11SS022.

  • SSTT is Serro Scotty Travel Trailer
  • The next two digits are the length
  • The digit in the 10th position designates the year, using this formula: A=1980, B=1981, C=1982, D=1983, E=1984, F=1985, G=1986, H=1987, J=1988, K=1989, L=1990, M=1991, N=1992, P=1993, Q=1994, R=1995, S=1996 and T=1997. Letters I & O were skipped
  • The final three digits are the production number for that year.
  • The VIN on a 80's/90's Scotty may be located on the side of the right arm, not on the top

* some 1980 Scottys still have the original-style VIN number.

** some folks have an abbreviated variation of the 17 digit VIN, for example, 13F2999, where 13=length (including tongue), F=1985, and 2999 is the production number.
