Try to find a data plate on the tongue or the side of the camper. Some of them list the date of manufacture as some states require that info for titling/registration purposes. That plate might also be tucked away inside a cabinet or under a dinette bench. Be aware that campers made in August or later are usually made for the next year's model line. Our Saratoga was built in 8/77 for the '78 model year, and is titled as a 1978 model.

If it has the original tail light lenses you can also look for a DOT number molded into the lens (i.e. DOT74.) That 74 means the taillight lens was made in 1974 and meets DOT standards for that year. That's a useless bit of info if the taillights have been replaced or there's no DOT number on the lens - not all of them had a DOT number. That method may not be 100% accurate, but it'll get you into the ballpark.

Doesn't it have a title?  Isn't it on there?

Thanks guys for the reply, gonna look for that data plate, and I wish I had an ownership for it I got this camper given to me, probably changed hands a few times with no ownership.
