so confused

I get so confused these days. There was a time when a Bambi was 16 foot,a Caravel was 17 foot, a Flying Cloud was a 22 foot trailer, a Safari was 22 foot, and a Sovereign was 30 foot. At least I still know an Overlander is 26 foot.

Frank you are stuck in the 60s. In my world (70s) Overlander's are 27 feet, Safari's 23, Trade Winds 25 and so on.

I thought it was way better when the name of the trailer was based on the size. Today the names are all the same with many recycled from earlier years.

Airstream made trailers in the 70's? Just joking, I know they stopped building them in 1979.

And there was a 21' Sovereign in (I think) 1991.

A travesty, Your Highness!

26 foot 9" that is why they called it a 27 footer after 1971...
