Did I find a special airstream

I just brought home a 1965 Overlander international twin. Looking it over I found decals where it went on a european caravan in 1977, to 18 countys, then to central america cavaran #113 to Panama in 1977, and to alaska. Boy am I jealous, Curtis Hill from Maryland bought it new, as per owners manual. There is a decal on the right front that has the manes Dick+Mirian Hervey on it, I think they may traveled with it. The p.o. had for 20 years, he got it from Kim Pennington. It was used as a week-end retreat and a hunting cabin, it sat 3/4 of a mile off a dirt road up in a woods, luckly it was in a clearing, in central Ohio. Can anyone shed any more light on this trailer. The red numbers are 14119 Thank you

Well. without exception, if the trailer was on those caravans, yes I think your trailer is special. But again, so is mine (to me). However, those trips really do stand out as rarities on an Airstream, also look at the trailer being 12 years old when it made the trips. There is a thread with information available on WBCCI trips numbers. Congtats on owning a world traveler. MPJ

I am sure one of the historians on here will chime in and help you determine answers to yor questions. If the old girl did make all those trips you owe it to her to bring her back to life. What a neat find and what a great conversation piece you will have when you determine her history is authentic. Either way she will always be special to you.
