Where is my Jayco vehicle identification number and what does it look like?
The Jayco, Inc. vehicle identification number (VIN) is 17 digits long and for towable products is located on the lower side of the “road side” sidewall. Motorized products have the VIN decal located on driver’s door jamb. The VIN is also usually indicated on sales paperwork you received from your selling dealer. The Jayco VIN begins with the digits; “1UJ…”

Should be stamped onto a little plate and welded to the drivers side of the pin box mount. Check there.

it may also be on a label on the backside of a cabinet door, or even stamped on the axle tube.

Most of the time, it's stuck to the inside of the cabinet door, but some put it in the back of the cabinet.

A cabinet?

Yea, because those are never replaced.

On a travel trailer/5th wheel?

Far less often than a home.

Besides, it wouldn't be the only place it was hiding, just the most convenient.

People don't buy used trailers and upgrade them?

So there is more than one VIN? I know some cars are that way but didn't know about trailers.

Generally speaking - no.

They may paint, wall paper, change out curtains, and a few other odds and ends. The cabinets or even cabinet doors, very rarely, exceedingly so.
