Globetrotter or Caravel??

Just browsing a used market place site and came across this:
1963 19' Airstream Travel Trailer Malahat (including Shawnigan Lake & Mill Bay), Victoria

Not much detail - What do you think it is?
Globetrotter or Caravel??

I don't know for sure, but I think the Caravelle was 17'

Globetrotter - says so right above the blue Airstream serial number plate to the left of the door below the first window.

Agree. If it's 19ft, it has to be a Globe Trotter. 2770# dry weight -- should be easy to tow with just about anything.

Yep, it's a GlobeTrotter. Check out:

As mentioned, Caravels are 17' long - not 19'. Also, they weren't built until 1965.

bath removed

GT, for sure. Looks like the rear shower/bath, sink and toilet were removed and replaced with a bed. Cost is quite high, given the PITA to replace them.

That trailer has been listed for several months now. Too high a price, considering the bathroom will need to be re-installed.

It's a Globtrotter , but not a $9900 one in my book. Way over priced , most of the interior is missing or altered .
