I see it says Collins but haven't heard that name anywhere. Type 1, Class A, Floor Plan 1. I am looking for diagrams or any info about it. Wheelbase 161"

There are two VIN numbers. I ran a decoder and got the attached results.

Should I pay for the full vehicle history report on each VIN?

Are there any more of these out there?ImageImage

I don't know much about them, but Collins has been around for a kong time.

If you have two different VIN numbers, then you most likely have a remounted unit. The number on the Patient Module (aka the box) would be the original vehicle it was on, and the number on the vehicle door would be for that vehicle.

Thank you, you were right. The box made in 1984 was remounted on this 1993 chassis. I decided both VINs and found that the dealer who sold it to me knew that when he bought it a slipping transmission was on the auction description. Texas has no protections for the buyer unless a specific warranty was made.
