WOW! sharp eyes winners. I couldn't see it. BTW even the "Airstream the History of the Land Yacht" identifies the photo on page 80 as a 1957 13 panel. Or were all '57's 15 panel? Then the caption may fit.

From sitting at the feet of our highly esteemed VAC Historian over the years...I believe this is a 1951 and possibly a prototype. 1957 was the last year they had 13 panels...mid-year they switched to 7.

Jump in Fred!

If that be the case the caption on page 80 of "Airstream the history of the Land Yacht" is incorrect. So what is it? '51' prototype, '57' with extra panels, want to know.

I knew it was a '51 but missed the 15 panel count. Dang. Early 51's I believe had 15 panels and one was for sale recently. Neat and rare. I only got 13 - I feel like an underachiever.

There are several 'mistakes' in the book that have been noted...

You're right...it does look the same. The tell-tale sign is that the bottom seam lines up with the bottom of the window instead of about a third of the way up as in 13 panels.

Obviously, the more panels = the more labor intensive. Today's trailers with 3 postformed panels are much less labor intensive than 5, 7, 13 or 15 panels of yester-year.
