    10th digit in VIN code is last 'digit' of the model year. If the tenth digit in the VIN was an 8, then the trailer was made in 2008.

    The model year digit is the tenth digit. Each year has a code character. From the 1980s until 2000, each year had a letter code, with 2000 assigned Y. 2001 was given code 1, 2002 is code 2, and so forth.

    Also, sometimes the VIN plate has the actual date of manufacture shown.

    Count down from Y being 2000. X is 99, w is 98, v is 97 and so on.
