Knowing the chassis vehicle identification number (VIN) is important to finding the right parts for a motorhome.  (Or other old Mopar vehicles.)

The magenta arrow in the following picture shows where I usually find the chassis VIN.  The chassis in the picture is a 1969 M300.  I have found the chassis VIN in the same place on a 1972 M375  chassis and a 1973 RM350 chassis.

These are close-ups of the chassis VIN on the 1969 M300, after the frame has been cleaned and stripped but before being prepped for painting.

Mopar changed the format of their VINs between 1969 and 1970, so this is an example of a pre-1970 VIN.
