Please see the attached pictures.

Many Thanks,

From the door handle, wheel well cutouts and front cap, I'd make it as a '57 Sovereign 30' or a '57 Overlander 26'. The length is hard to determine from the photos, but I've never seen an Airstream with those long windows on the curb side in the bedroom before. I'd presume that must make it a Sovereign.

If it would help you identify it a little better, I could take more pictures.

According to my book of old Airstream trailer serial number sequences, that trailer is a 1959 26 footer.

To confirm the length, measure the length of the awning rail. It should be exactly 16 feet.

If you want more info, it should have center twin beds, at least as built, and was built in California. It also seems to be currently licensed in England.

59 - Yes

I would say 59 also. It appears that it has bunks too, or at least did.

Have you checked the

Those long windows are there because of the bunks. Also the big AS plate is a dead giveaway for 1960........
