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!
