Caravel Airstream or ???


I am new and looking to possibly buy my first Airstream. This is the one I'm looking at. It's far away and for the moment I only have these pictures, and the owner doesn't know what model they have, but they say it's an 18' late 70's model, which would be wrong if it were a Caravel. Anyone know what this is?

Thank you!

Looks like a mid -to-late 70's GlobeTrotter to me...if you can get the VIN# it can be deciphered here by somebody.

BTW, the 18' probably doesn't include the tongue & bumper which would actually confirm that it's a GT. You can get more info here: Vintage Airstream Photo Archives check through the photos to see examples of the different years.

Good luck if you decide to buy it and welcome to the forums!
