Early 70's?

'73 maybe?
Very nice coach, whatever the year.

My guess...

Has the later 'Airstream' logo...

Has '70s vintage front windows & rock guard.

Has later style tank cover and graphics...

Has '80s style interior wood

I'd guess 1979.

One more guess...

'83 was the first year for the tri-axle and I know that the first ones had the wrap-around Argosy-style windows that year... so it has to be older than '83.

You've already told Brett it's not an '82, so that's ruled out.

The interior is newer than the '78 style, and you've already told me that it's not a '79. It is definately a transition year as in addition to the other features, it has the '80s style door that has the window and a more squared top. By process of elimination then, it has to be either an '80 or '81. There weren't many Airstreams produced those years as they nearly went out of business in '79-80 with the gas crisis. Although I don't know the production numbers for those years, it's a pretty safe bet to say your coach is pretty rare!

My guess is 1990 with a lot of extras. I looked at one just like it before i purchased the new 22'ccd. The company wanted somthing new and with a warranty. Very nice trailer though!

Looks mighty familiar...

As the proud owner of an 88, that looks about like an '87 or '88, with lots of pinks and reddish oak inside, and wide blue stripes outside...

Excella 27 or 29??
