'76 Overlander length

I am considering buying a 1976 Overlander from a friend of mine. I have a 28ft long driveway that I want to put it in. It says (on VIN), that it is 27ft-does that measurement include only the trailer, or the bumper and tow hitch? When I measured (airstream only without bumper), I got less that 24ft. Perhaps I measured wrong, but measured 10 times. I just want to make sure I got the right measurement before hauling it from one state to the other.
The VIN is I27D6-S0096. Can anyone help me figure this out? I am totally new to this airstream thing (always just admired them from afar). Are Overlanders made in 1976 only 27ft long? Could I be wrong about the size?

Welcome to the forums.
I=International trim
27=27 feet long, bumper to hitch ball
D=center double bed
6= 1976 model year
S= California built trailer
0096= sequential production number

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

We love the size and the rear bath. We did replace the double with twins just because it was more pratical for us.
