Try this

1st digit--Country of origin
2nd digit--Manufacturer
3rd digit--Make
4th digit--Line
5th & 6th digits--Body style
7th digit--Restraint system
8th digit--Engine
9th digit--Check digit
10th digit--Year
RVS manufactured after 2000 show numerical designations. For example, 2001=1, 2002=2, etc. Those manufactured before 2001 show alpha designations; for example X=1999, and Y=2000. After 2009 the tenth character will revert back to alpha: 2010=A
11th digit--Assembly plant
12th to 17th digits--Sequence number

Redwood should be closing in number 5000 by now, but they also started at 1400

I've seen people mention their build dates, yet it isn't in the VIN and is not on any paperwork that I can find. Where is it?

Manufacture date is posted on the label posted on the rig, ours is on the coach exterior, curb side between the propane and basement doors. The top line of the label lists the manufacturer and build date.
