How To Identify Your Chassis

Our products are designed for specific chassis, and we realize that not all of our customers know what type of chassis they have–so here are some simple tips to follow.
The first and easiest way is to look at the steering wheel on your motorhome–it will usually have the Ford logo, or say “Workhorse” “Spartan” or some other brand. If there is no label, your motorhome registration will have the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that will tell us what chassis your coach rides on. We have information on Workhorse, Ford and Chevy chassis to draw from, and we’ve also found that vinquery.com is a great resource to determine what chassis you have. Simply enter the VIN number, and it will come back with basic information on your coach. The only time we run into problems is with Country Coach motorhomes, because the VIN number doesn’t tell you the type of chassis. With these coaches, we’ll usually advise the customer to take the coach to a shop that can find the suspension tag on the front cross member of the chassis, or a part number on one of the shock absorbers. We can also tell the customer where to find the suspension tag or shock code on their coach if they’re comfortable crawling underneath.
Knowing what chassis you have will make it easier to find products for Safer and Happier Driving. God bless!
