Where can you find the vin number on a 1987 Chevy P30 Chassis its a Southwind motor home and cant locate vin plate in the cab or on side under hood etc?

Answer


look on the title.
Thanks I need to do a VIN verification though and it requires to match the Title to the actual VIN on the vehicle.

Try looking by the inside side door, outside the side door.
It should be there some where if someone hasn't removed it, Your looking for the Vin for the coach itself right? The chassis itself may have a Vin on the left side of the dash under the windshield, possibly~
Hope this helps.

Steeplechase

What course is longer The Grand National or The Oxford Cambridge boat race?

The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race

The Boat Race course is marked by three classic bends, two in favour of the Middlesex station, on the north bank of the Thames, while the third favours the crew drawn on the opposite Surrey station. In spite of these bends the course is theoretically fair - the start and finish lines are exactly parallel, and in the unlikely event of the crews staying level throughout the race, they will both have covered the magic Boat Race distance of exactly 4 miles 374 yards.

Grand National The Grand National is a Grade 3 handicap chase currently restricted to six-year-old and above horses. It is run over a distance of 4 miles 4 furlongs (7,242 m) at Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool, usually on a Saturday in early April. There are thirty fences to be jumped in the race.
