M28A9V5223 - redrobin911 (Northern Ireland) (Excella)

Chris, as you can see most years had sequence numbers in the 5000 range. What I find interesting is the last one for 79. It's almost double the other numbers for the year.

Also note there are only 6 Argosy 20s listed.

where do you find the serial number

Hi there. Kind of new to the Airstream life. We are working on our 1979 28' Excella Motorhome. We are finishing up installing a used Onan generator that we found. We are putting soundproofing around the storage for it. Anyway, while looking at the forums, I saw the serial number link. Where on the excella do you find the Air stream number. I found one in the manual that came with the motorhome, but it was printed in the book and are not sure if that is the number or where we would find it. Thanks. Now off to look at how we can get rid of the bathroom sink faucet and change it out for one that isn't a creepy gold tone.

V = Versailles, Ohio (production facility)
5165 = Production number

I can't help you with your Chevy vin but you can search for information on any number of websites.
Versailles only built the Argosy units. It is approximately 20 miles from where I live.

Another AS vin# if anyone cares.

I finally found it. Thanks to all the posts that people have posted, I found the Airstream number you are talking about. My # is M28A9S5059. I don't know why mine has an S before the last 4 numbers. Seems most numbers have a V.

Brad,
May as well add these 2:
M28T9V5143 1979 Excella PeterH-79MH -I restored and owned for 10 years
M28T9V5142 1979 Excella Curtis-79MH - my friend Curtis in Anchorage used to own it

And yes they were consecutive serial numbers. Some years ago, my wife and I flew to Alaska and Curtis was so generous to let us stay in it at a local campground

Already had yours and Curtis's on my list. I've added Kim's and Brock's.

One of these days I'll re-post the list that I've compiled.

Realized today I had never added the parts donor (which will never see the road again!) to the database....



M28D8V5329, 28ft MH double bed/rear bath, but quite a high sequence number....I hope I haven't cut up the last ever Argosy!!!!!
