HELP!!! Determining year of Seneca Coach

Hi all! We are considering buying an advertised 2010 Jayco Seneca 36FK. We've looked at the coach and love it. But when we downloaded the 2010 Seneca brochure from Jayco, that model or floorplan is not shown. Also, when we ran the VIN number it came back as a 2008 Chevy 6.6L V8, but it was not sold until 2010 turbo diesel. I've looked at the brochures from 2008 - 2012 and can't find the model until 2012. What the heck?? Please help!!!

GM stopped production of the KODIAK in late 2008 so JAYCO bought all the chassis they could find in order to keep building the SENECA's. Those chassis are classified as incomplete units until the house is added so the actual model year is determined by the year JAYCO completed the MH. So even though it is an 08 chassis it is a 2010 model year.

Go to the archives for the floor plan.

Thanks Grumpy! How does that affect resale value when the VIN and the registration don't match?

Also....the floor plan doesn't show up until 2012. Does that mean they took the average? 2008 cab and chassis and a 2012 floor plan. How do you value that?

A dealer would base it on registration since it wasn't sold/titled until 2010. Chassis year and model year differences are quite common when it comes to motorized RV's. That floorplan is on JAYCO's website, where are you looking? If your talking about NADA the dealers all have the "Black book" which is updated regularly so it is based on the actual unit, a 2010. They don't use the NADA info you find on line.

Thanks Grumpy! I downloaded the brochure from the Jayco website for 2010. Can't find the 36FK. Did you see it somewhere else on the website? Thanks for your help!

Click on the link I attached, scroll down to the floorplans. New floor plans are often added after the brochures are printed.

It is well known that there is often as much as a year or so for the date of the chassis to be different than the house. We also know there was a big shakeup during that time as they moved to the newer chassis. If the title is clear, does it matter? You are buying used, after all.

You can easily verify what features it has and whether or not you like the floor plan. What difference does it make if it doesn't comply with the brochure? You can verify what chassis it is on and what engine is in it.

These floor plans (for all mfgs) are actually boringly similar anyway from my point of view and can be remodeled anyway to fit ones needs.

Buying used gives you great comfort in personalizing it to your needs. As long as the chassis and engine are great, get on with it. Gut the thing and rebuild if you want.
