We purchased our Crossroads Zinger in August from a dealer and was told that it is a 2013 model. All of the paperwork that was done at the dealers says that it is a 2013. However, we just received the title from the state of Illinois and it says that it is a 2012 model. The sticker on the door of the camper says that it was manufactured in May 2012. So, what year is it?<div id="isChromeWebToolbarDiv" style="display:n&#111;ne">

Thank you,
Karen Ervin

Well I would guess by everything you have it is a 2013 model. However, DMV or the state in your case only cares about the year it was built. That being 2012. I think it is the same with cars it maybe a 2013 but bought in 2012.

Well, I have looked at de-coding the VIN and the 10th letter in the the number is a D which from what I have read that means it is a 2013. My concern is that if and when we ever want to sell it, we would be selling a 2012 by the way the title reads. I am going to DMV this week and see if I can get it changed.<div id="isChromeWebToolbarDiv" style="display:n&#111;ne">

I would agree that it is a 2013. Car manufacturers change their years over around the fall, but most rv manufacturers change over in the spring--in some cases I think as early as march/april. My unit was built in Sept 2010 and is considered a 2011. My wifes suv was built in October 2011 but considered a 2012. I'm not sure how DMV works in the states, but the MTO here in Ontario consider mine to be a 2011 and dw's car a 2012 (same as vin).

My cruiser was built in May 2006 and it is titled as a 2007. Might be a state "thing".

Might have to do with how your dealer registered it...

What does your insurance company say when they run the VIN...or better yet, do you have the "window sticker"? Those items might help the DMV.....
