    I understand that most new British Motorhomes built since 2001 should each have:

    • A unique Motorhome Identification Number (MIN), plus an electronic tag hidden in the bodywork holding the MIN number
    • A 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
    I have never owned a European Motorhome, can someone tell me if they use similar identification schemes on the continent. Is there a Europe wide scheme or do France and Germany have there own schemes. Thanks

    Watched a police camera action on BBC last week
    were by the police went on to a campsite
    checked caravan windows for dodgy window I'd nos
    anything Suspect and they
    got a reader out and went accross the rear panel
    and secreted in there was a chip with I'd no on it
    no doubt newer motor homes are similar
    Similar prog was on last night


    Felt sorry for the fellow that had to clear his stuff
    out of the caravan purchased for cash
    the seller met him half way to save him the full journey

    I have a small bit of plastic in the door well that if you lift it out with a screwdriver reveals a plate with a long number on it. Never tried to check what it is though.

    Maybe someone can confirm where the VIN No. on a Boxer is?
