Identify this Pretty Baby

I can see it's aluminum; I can see it's an Airstream; I can even see it's a Sovereign..

But what year?

And aren't these windows FANCY??? :-)

From the air conditioner shroud, I would say 1969-1972.

It is the newer body, which started in 1969, and the A/C shroud was last used on 1972 models.

Is there a serial number on the tongue or a metal plate?

Did you look inside? Were the interior parts real-wood looking, or did they have a "veneer" look about them? If it looks like real wood, it is probably a 1969. If it looks plastic-y it is a 70-72.

Ummm,

The front windows look like they have rounder outside lower corners, Based on that it is not a 69.

I will say it is a 70-73 vintage, wood interior would be there up through 71, once you get to 72 it has the plastic veneers.

I could see thought the windows only, but will check it out closer when I can meet the woman....when we both have time to get together.

Inside there is a plastic patio table and plastic lawn chairs.. they have started to gut her. One of the smaller, bottom windows on the right side is shattered, too.

This unit is still listed in the WBCCI Membership book this year, from Florida, and here she sits, in Northen IL!
