How Can I Review the History of a 1982 Skyline Travel Trailer?

  • Print this article

The terms "travel trailer" and "RV," or recreational vehicle, appear synonymous but describe different vehicles. The latter has an engine, while the former requires a tow from a truck or van. Each travel trailer, including the 1982 Skyline Travel Trailer, has an assigned vehicle identification number (VIN). If the trailer was bought used, or records are damaged or lost, you can use the trailer's VIN as identification when requesting a vehicle history report. The report covers insurance repairs and other restorations. It might not include cosmetic repairs or routine maintenance.
