Hey Kristin, you have a 1968 Shasta which was born in Goshen, Indiana. You mentioned that it was a Compact (10' long body) or could it be a Loflyte (about a 15' long body)? Reason I ask is, during 1968 and surrounding your Shasta's vin#, Loflytes were the main production model. Just wanting to double check. Thanks.
Hey Mirmium, You have a 1972 Shasta Compact, born in Leola, Pennsylvania.

I measured and camper is 10, camper to tip of tongue is 13. I bought this project pretty inexpensive. I was looking at title and noticed the Vin wasn't that of a shasta. I looked at the tongue and whoever had her placed a metal tag with new vin. I Google where to find the original vin and there it was two places on the tongue. Not sure why the other owners never registered it with the original vin. That's why I was curious of the true year and type. I'll see if I can post a pic. Thanks again!
We've had our Shasta Compact for about 3 years. It is 13' long tip to tip; the box is 10'. When purchased it was advertised as a '59 Shasta Compact Pro. Never heard of anyone else using Pro. Just recently started looking for/at the VIN number. On this trailer there is a Calif. Dept. of Housing plate on the front behind the propane tank with the following numbers: M-66 S-18480 1722. On the driver side inside the C frame is a plate welded on with the number 18480. On the passenger side of the frame, stamped in, is the number DS18480 FA1722. The first letter is a bit unclear and could be a B. Let me know how this fits in with your other data, but I don't know how.
Based on your Compact's vin number, it is showing that you have a 1963 Shasta and born in Northridge, California. If it were born in 1959, the prefix letter would have been "C". The prefix letter "B" was never used.
Hope this helps and thank you for your Shasta's vin#!
