Land Yacht Serial number

Looking to purchase a Land Yacht Airstream . There was a number by the door or name plate that was 129D90611. Another number B4FJ I also found in a location close by. Can somebody help with this ? The bathroom was in the back with 2 single beds in front of that and a pullout coach in the front. trailer was about 28 to 29 feet in length. Thanks!

That first character is probably an I, not a 1.

I - International
29 - 29' long (Ambassador, most likely)
D - Double bed plan (generally a gaucho sofa that makes down into a bed along the aisle) This doesn't match with your description of twin beds flanking the aisle, maybe a modification
9 - year manufactured... '69 or '79 most likely
EDIT: the '79 Ambassador was 28' according to Airstream, so probably this is a '69, given the encoded length is 29'.
?? - in this position I'd expect a J or an S (J = Ohio, S = California)

Then the rest is a semi-sequential serial number.

Thanks for your response. I can get a good price on it at about $1500 dollars. Heck new tires and rims and a good frame. Would like to restore and use it. What are they worth ? Interior needs some cleaning and work. out side looks good .

$1500 is generally an acceptable price for a basket case with an OK shell and all the glass. 4 new junky tires cost $400 or so... not seeing any pictures, I'd say it's a decent possibility.
