1960 Ambassador 28'

We sold our 1969 Overlander last week. Posted it for sale on Friday night. When I checked my e-mail Saturday morning it had sold. The buyer came to the house paid cash and drove it away.

We replaced the 1969 Overlander with a 1960 28' Ambassador. It has a twin bed floorplan with fold down bunks. The VIN # 1280117T. I am trying to find an owners manual and or a shop manual.

If anyone has any info on this trailer please let me know.

Also has anyone had service done at C&G in Bellflower, CA? Any comment?

Thanks,
Paul

I don't think they had owners manuals or shop manuals that early.

They did have owners manuals and as far as i know they are still availble photocopied for about 25 bucks.
I have had great experiences with C&G and so have my parents.
Welcome.

Thanks for the endorsement of C&G. Do you know where I can get a copy of the owners manual?

Actual owner's or shop manuals were not available until 1964. Prior to that, mimeographed copies of typed sheets came with the trailer pertaining to the various systems and appliances. Some of these can be found on airstream.net.

Also, if you'll look closely at your serial number, I believe you'll find that it starts with an "I" (letter) and not a "1" (number) for International model. The 28 is length in feet, the "0" is a zero for the model year, 117 is the number off the assembly line and the "T" is for the Twin bed arrangement. If you haven't found out yet, '59 and '60 models are the best, in my opinion. Of course I may be somewhat partial.

I think Airstream's website has or had a link to Helen at secretarial services or something like that up in Ohio. They are black and white photocopies. I bought one years ago from her.
