Is this an airstream

I bought a 1977 Argosy mh that is what brought me to the forums .I currently live in a 1988 Windjammer by establishement. that is what it says on the body . But there is a sticker on the drivers door that says it was mfg by airstream and gives a number. So does this mean I have been a streamer and didn't know it?

Argosy was a Airstream brand, so yes, it is an Airstream.

No, Windjammer is not an Airstream. Google Windjammer & Establishment together -- plenty of hits. No idea why it would say Airstream on the badge. Or is that on a dealer sticker?

Don't worry I would not try to pass this off as an Airstream I thought the sticker was interesting and funny knowing airstreams reputation for quality this mh does not measure up.

: Is this an airstream

This is speculation on my part, but I wonder if the driver's door might be interchangeable with that of an Airstream Land Yacht Motorhome? Given that the same corporate parent owned both marques, it could be that this was a corporately shared part. There is a possibility if this were the case that the motorhome's door may have been replaced with one from the salvage yard at some point in time.
