You can get close but not exact. The VIN was actually assigned to the trailer frame. Each frame is assigned a letter depicting which plant it was manufactured at. Example: My VIN starts with a V which indicates it was built at the Goshen, IN plant. The numbers which follow is the sequence # to that size frame. So..if they were building two different models which used a '14 frame then you could have two different models with the VIN # being in sequence. There are two databases online that I am aware of where you can see where your VIN falls. These are not perfect but the only resource that I have came across which can help identify the year your trailer was made based on the VIN.

I know of two databases on VIN numbers for Shasta trailers that have been built up by members of two Yahoo user groups. You need to join the group to view them, but joining is easy and there is a lot of information available.
HI... I was able to find the dates on the back of the mirror, under the sink and the tag on the bunk tri fold mattress was stamped too. they all were with in a couple months of each other. All 1966 even though It was just sold to me as a 1964... I now very confident it is a "66"
