I puchased m jayco from a family friend, its an older model and I have no idea where the vin is. The previous owners did not have it registered but I need to have everything legal. A year model would also help, I do know that it is a cardinal.sorry about the pictures its too cold for me to open it up right now.Click image for larger version

Welcome to the site!
try some fine grit sandpaper on the frame where the vin should be. You may be able to remove enough paint / rust / grime to see the vin.
good luck

The vin will be in multiple places. There should be a tag attached to the tongue somewhere that will have it on it. But on my brothers late 80’s model it is nearly impossible to read. If there is a cargo hold with a sticker on it, there would be a good chance it is listed there. There may be a vin number inside one of the cabinets. I have found a copy of my vin under my HTT near the right rear corner.

Greenenvy1 is correct, if you located it stamped on the frame a little fine sandpaper will revel it.

That's the problem, if it is on the frame I have no idea where to look for it.

Did the family member have it the whole time? Name of last person it was registered to? Or maybe where any work was done on it? Jayco has to maintain a database of owners in-case there is a recall. Might be a last resort way.

Here is the FAQ straight from Jayco website

Where is my Jayco vehicle identification number and what does it look like?
The Jayco, Inc. vehicle identification number (VIN) is 17 digits long and for towable products is located on the lower side of the “road side” sidewall. Motorized products have the VIN decal located on driver’s door jamb. The VIN is also usually indicated on sales paperwork you received from your selling dealer. The Jayco VIN begins with the digits; “1UJ…”

On my 1990 it's on top of the roadside frame rail. I'd take a pic for you but its under about 3 feet of snow at the moment.

Curbside and roadside. So the roadside is the drive’s side of the camper.

Allrght that's all cleared up, any specific places besids just the roadside on the tongue, because one thing I saw said the wheel hub support bar underneath, I looked and everything but I'm just running out of ideas, also because its an older camper I'm afraid they only put the vin on a sticker and now its lost.

Did you try sending Jayco an email with pics and questions? They helped me out with a truck camper I had a few years ago.
