Have you actually taken a tape measure and confirmed the length? On looking at the sideways pic in the dark, she looks quite long, longer than my globie.

More pics; check the hose conection on rear bumper street side( maybe indicate toilet side?), window to the left of entrance door ( probably they change it with plexiglass and add frame to it to shape it).

Yeah, she is longer than my Globie. Nice. Looks like you have the Corning curved windows, be very, very careful with those, I hear they are made of unobtanium.

Model of trailer

M.C., From what I see in your pictures Your trailer would appear to be a 1967 22 foot Safari rather than a 20 foot Globetrotter! The way to know for sure would be to measure from the outside of the back bumper to the front edge of the hitch ball. The body/overall length will be shorter than 22 feet but that's how Airstream factory (measured) them. The picture with the louvered vents is for the water heater not for a refer. The windows do not have the edged stainless steel trim that would be factory for a '68 model, w/o trim is factory for a '66 or '67 model. I will keep looking at the rest of your photos but this is most likely a '67 model. I'll post back here if I see anything else that help to identify your trailer. The photo that shows the missing plate beneath the window where the faded glue remains of the dealer sticker is located is where your model serial/VIN plate should be. See if you can obtain any info from the seller you got the trailer from as to paperwork or registration that would show how the trailer was last licensed and the state that would allow you to search for more info. If you cannot get anything that way PM me and I may be able to share some other ways in which to might be able to Identify the trailer so you can get a title in your name. Hope this helps, Ed

Unfortunately I found nothing so far on previous owners; I don't know much about Airstream but for what I see on pictures, window on the street side looks like a bit different, also the refrigerator vent is on street side too, Thanks again for all the help BIGED52 !!!

Hints from pictures

M.C , You can get new glass for your windows from Airstream dealers or from VintageTrailerSupply.com. My refrigerator is on the street side so if your vent is on the same side as the two large windows that would make sense. The round vent stack at the street side rear is the vent for the bathroom as a plumbing vent. The small window to the left of the entry door is normally located above the galley sink. I don't believe the window to the right of the door is found on the Globetrotter. However this trailer could have been a custom order. Check to see if that window opening is 17.5" X 20.5", if so it is likely a Safari 22 foot model. Ed

The globe trotter

Some fun facts about GTs... Generally speaking, and with Airstream's caveat “Specifications subject to change”.



The name Globe Trotter may have first appeared as a sub-model of the 22ft liner in 1948.


The name disappeared until around 1954, reappearing as18ft, then vanished again until perhaps 1958 and 59, This fuzzy era of 18footers shared names of caravelle , globester, wanderer, traveler, comet, pacer... The names might be CA and OH differences?



'62 appears to be the first 19 foot GT.


19foot 1964 is first year of reputed model standardization, CA and OH floor-plans matched. Last year of Door-in-Door.


'65 became a 20footer (20' 8”), relinquished Door in Door to stacked side lite window right of entry door. Hence forward, GTs always had a small stack window right of door.



65/66 were sisters, both had wet-baths, but the '66 got the beautiful new Corning/Philips curved glass. Today, everything is available to restore these windows to original.


The 67/68 GTs were stretched to 20' 11” and shared the same “luxurious” new bath design with all bigger trailers of 67/68. Comparatively, the nicest bath yet, perhaps ever. Two floor-plans, Twin or Double.


1969 21footer was the year of modernized shell change. GTs got longer, wider, heavier until disappearing after 1977, and have yet to resurface.

Your damaged refrigerator roof vent is on the curbside directly above the stacked refrigerator access doors to the left of entry door.


Your water heater door is pretty hammered, but save it.


Keep posting photos, and good luck...

Well this is starting to make a bit more sense now, trailer length is actually 20'11" and not 21 FT as I said previously. Ref vent is on curb side, plumbing for kitchen sink vent is in between window and fridge access doors, curved window right to entrance door is 17 by 20 or close to that, round marks from old lights are still there maybe it can help a little to identify it.
