I have just bought a Avondale orestes two berth caravan and need to know the age and chassis number for insurance reasons, can anyone help. The only information I can see is etched on the windows, which is SGAS5000 AVR0002056. It is a two berth end kitchen and toilet, it also has a red stripe down the side (someone told me the colour can tell the year) if that helps. ..

From Google

 

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 first two characters = Country of manufacture (SG in this case represents UK)

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 3rd character = Can vary but in most cases is the make (B for Bailey, A for Avondale etc)

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 4th character = Whether the caravan is sible or twin axle (T for twin & S for single)

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 5th, 6th & 7th characters = Optional manufacturer information (this is sometimes used by manufacturers to represent different model ranges)

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 8th & 9th characters = The manufacturer of the caravan (In this case Swift see below for manufacturer codes)

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 10th character = Model year (In this case 2013 see below for year codes)

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 11th, 12th & 13th characters = Optional manufacturer information

SGDTT6ESWD0335379 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th characters = Caravans unique serial number

 

Manufacturer codes:

 

AB = ABI

AD = Adria

AV = Avondale

BE = Bessacarr (later Bessacarr were built by Swift so will carry the SW code)

BU = Buccaneer (later Buccaneer were build Explorer Group so will carry code EX)

BY = Bailey

CL = Carlight

CM = Coachman

CP = Compass (may carry EX code in some circumstances as were built by Explorer Group)

CS = Cosalt (later Abbeys were built by Swift and so will carry SW code)

CU = Sprite (later Sprites were built by Swift and so will carry SW code)

EL = Elddis (may carry the EX code for earlier model before Explorer Group re-branded to Elidds)

EX = Explorer Group (now known as Elddis)

FL = Fleetwood

LU = Lunar

SW = Swift Group

 

Build year codes:

 

N = 1992

P = 1993

R = 1994

S = 1995

T = 1996

V = 1997

W = 1998

X = 1999

Y = 2000

1 = 2001

2 = 2002

3 = 2003

4 = 2004

5 = 2005

6 = 2006

7 = 2007

8 = 2008

9 = 2009

A = 2010

B = 2011

C = 2012

D = 2013

E = 2014

 

One thing to note about the build year codes; the caravanning build season runs from 1st September one year to 31st August the following year. That means that a caravan built between September 1st 2009 and 31st August 2010 would carry the build year code A for 2010. It does not mean the year in which it was built.

Therefore 1997 I think

 

Edit, looking again I think you have 1 too many figures in there. Must be an Avondale 1994.
