Airstreams. It's a nice floor plan that for more than a decade has often been misidentified as a 1961 "Safari".
Spaceliners never had their own exterior name script, making them difficult to identify without recognizing their distinctive floor plan. Here are three Spaceliners which are still misidentified as 1961 Safaris:
1. 1961 Safari 22' #22-TDSS0548 - Vintage Airstream
This one has a later model year "Safari" name script attached that perpetuates its misidentification. Note the louvered window in the rear-hinged door, the small black California Division of Housing compliance plate and the distinctive floor plan inside.
2. 1961 Safari 22' - Vintage Airstream
The "L" shape dinette seating and table opposite the galley have been removed and replaced by a longer gaucho in this Spaceliner.
3. 1961 Safari 22' #22-TDSS0544 - Vintage Airstream
This one at least includes an acknowledgement that it has the "Spaceliner" layout, although it is still mislabeled as a 22' Safari.
