Argosy Minuet 6.7 '78 or '77

The title for my Argosy Minuet says 1978 but on the trailer it says manufactured 10 1977. Probably purchased in '78 but is it a '77 or '78?

Airstream has followed the practice of beginning its new model years sometime in June so your production date of October 1977 would correspond to a 1978 model year Minuet. The VIN can establish this fact in absolute terms. Your VIN should begin in the following manner: 22D8V . . . . . where the 22 indicates 6.7 Metre Minuet, D=Double, 8=Model Year (1978), and V=Versailles, OH assembly plant (C=Cerritos, CA assembly plant--but it is not known whether any Minuets were among the small number of Argosys with the C designation). The balance of the VIN represents the sequential production number.

Good luck with your Minuet!
