Hi I know this question relates to a classic van, as its a 1970 Franklin for sale, that I am considering. The seller tells me the van is 14ft and sleeps 3 and the model is a series 1900. But I thought the models were names like Arrow and the number was the chassis number? This will be my first van purchase and I have tried to learn / research as much as I can but still very much learning. So if there is also anyone who could come and do an inspection on this van in Melbourne I would be also very keen to hear from you. I would be happy to pay for your time. I am so glad I was recommended these pro-boards and joined. So thank you in advance for your assistance. A
Hi annaluna, If you put up a pic we can tell you what model and year the van is. 1900 is used when a van has been re registered at some stage and the rego office/ owner don’t know the correct year! Hope this helps Cheers hughdeany

As Hughdeany said, if you can show us some photos of your van we can probably tell you where to look for the serial number on your van. If it was built before 1989 it most probably won't have a VIN number (as opposed to a manufacturer's serial number) because VIN's only became a requirement from that year. If the van has been re-registered at some point after 1989 it may have a VIN applied at that later stage though.
