I did send Sarah an email earlier asking if this meant that my Vin number would be changing. Her answer was no, the Vin would not be changing, and all my paperwork was still valid. That was a relief since we've already registered it and gotten our tags

Sorry to say, I have to agree with the sentiment that this was probably brought about by a U.S. manufacturer who sees a niche market that they can't control. Being a small business, artisanal soap maker, I see the rules and regulations that the Government continually tries to impose upon the small entrepreneur. I belong to a Guild which has an "advocate" whose sole responsibility is to talk to members of Congress in order to try and stymie useless bills whose only purpose is to put the the small soap maker out of business. And who is behind all of this legislation? Turns out it's entities like Proctor & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Revlon, etc.

Wouldn't surprise me if an entity like Thor forced Congress to review/revise their export rules for RVs. Guess I'm just the distrusting type ...

I was also glad to hear that. I was wondering if the Escape VIN number system would need to change and whether that would create a problem in the US when selling a used trailer down the road...like the VIN number was invalid or something. Sounds like escape just needs to get into the system so that the VIN numbers can decode correctly.

Jan, I think your distrust is well placed. A long dead US President once said that the scariest words in the English language were "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help."

I had started to put that out there but I erased it . I get in enough trouble but since you stated it first .Thor seams to be gobbling all RV's . Now they have Nest fiberglass. It is a possibility . Pat

Thought that was, "I'm from IT, and I'm here to help".
Government has never erased my drive and all my personal files, TWICE, without telling me what they were going to do.

Not sure about the "ever" part. That hasn't been my experience in similar situations in other countries. True, if you're buying to export you have to get out of Dodge quickly but once the item has gone to another country and been registered there the clock is reset. You can then re-enter the original country.

You can blame that muckraker rbryan4 in post #53 Pat. He started it.
