Last year, ETI had sent us a proposed VIN# so we insured our trailer with that 'proposed VIN number'...but ETI failed to mention to us at pick up that they changed the VIN number and we didn't notice it because at a glance, it looked identical (just the last number was different.)

When registering, it was our California DMV agent who first noticed this discrepancy. Then we realized we had redundant paperwork with 2 different VIN numbers. Feeling confused, we all went out to the trailer to double check and see which number matched the trailer. We then shuffled and gave him all the corrected/matching 'final VIN number' paperwork.

Then we called our insurance agent to correct the VIN number on our insurance plan. We assume something must've happened to a trailer in the ETI factory production line, prompting them to move all the VIN numbers up a digit...but it would've been nice for them to inform us of our VIN# change - so just a reminder to double check your final VIN numbers! - Bea
Thanks for the heads up. I just double checked my proposed VIN with the sticker on the trailer and they match.
