Hi There,

Yes that black pipe is your sink vent.

Take care of your door latch and lever handle, that model, used, goes for $300-$550 on eBay.

Quite a project you have there, keep your goal in mind.

Quite a project indeed haha! I guess that price is with original title which I don't have, anyway we're not thinking about selling it, so we'll probably apply for a home made if we have no luck with the original title.

M.C , That badge is for the Mobile Homes Manufacturers Association. I am not sure what the TCA stands for. If you can see if the MHMA still exists and they have records going back to the 60's they may be able to connect there registration Number with a trailer VIN number. These plates were installed on the trailers at the Airstream factory where the trailer was built. The good part is that was only Jackson Center, Ohio by the time your trailer was built. You could try to call Airstream and ask if they have records that would cross reference the MHMA number to the VIN number. Good luck with your search and let us know what you find out. Ed

Colaws RV Salvage

M.C , By the way, I forgot to mention that Colaws is the Carthage, Mo. Salvage yard that was posted above. I have a few other sites that have parts available in the U.S. and there is also a list available on the VintageAirstream,com site. The other big salvage parts place I have knowledge of is FiveStarRVCenter.com who purchased all the stock from CherokeeRVSalvage.com when the went out of business. Ed

After 2 weeks I am back, I called Airstream factory in Ohio, emailed the info that I had back and forth, I went to the DMV, called Florida Highway Patrol and the only thing that I have found (rather received) is an email [from Airstream] stating that the # that I came up with is consistent with model and year. The # is: O207J683
I don't know how to proceed other than getting a title as a homemade trailer. Please advise.

On an unrelated note, we're getting ready to lift the shell off. We will be installing gray and black tanks from a 1995 Nomad by Skyline that I had gutted years ago. Is there any other thing to be done during the lift of the shell other than tanks.

M.C, The number you reported above is your VIN # This is how you break it down:

O = Standard Landyacht interior and exterior trim package.
20 = Trailer Length 20 feet/ Model = Globetrotter.
7 = Year of Manufacture 1967.
J = Mfg Plant = Jackson Center, Ohio.
683 = This is your trailers individual Production Serial Number.

Put all together it = Your Trailer Vin #! So now you can search for that vin # with the State or local Police to see if you can find two important things in the history of your trailer. 1) Where (State) was it last Registered and Licensed in. 2) Was it reported Stolen.

Stolen could be an issue but if the title was Registered in a State DMV it will help you to locate the last know owner. That could lead to getting the title transferred to you. This would allow you to have an original Title in your name, Registered & Licensed in your State.

You should have the police verify the Vin#. If it is not located on the trailer anywhere you will need to show the proof you have that it is the Vin# for your trailer. After this step is complete then the Vin # can and should be stamped onto your A-Frame in a conspicuous place. If you could locate a model serial plate from a scrapped Globetrotter you could remove the scrapped trailers Vin # and have your trailers Vin # stamped onto it. Then it could be added to the trailer below the window to the right of your entry door where it was originally located. This would be the best thing that your investigation has found to date! Keep us up to date with your search. Good Luck, Ed

Hi there. So glad I came to check in on any new GT's. Your family is going to love it! There are so many helpful people here. I know nothing. Barely knew the name of tools. But I did a shell off anyway. There well be many questions and the if, then, else sequencing. Like I missed getting my new wheel wells back on under the floor. They are on top. Dang it. But I learned to fix or patch from all these great people. Good luck. Start a new thread on your whole process! Dena
