Thumbs up A/S MH ID's

Nice tool, I put my numbers in, and got:

Mfg, Make, Type: Airstream Class A Motorhome
Type: Corner Rear Bath (Mine is a center -midship- bath)
Series: Motorhome, Front Gasoline Engine, Chevy
Body Type: Semi-monocoque, 96" narrow body, continuous curved, shiny aluminum Shell, contoured window glass, fames and doors
Length: 34í to less than 35í
Axle Configuration: Triple Axle
Check Digit: 5
Model Year: 1985
Site of Manufacturer: Jackson Center, Ohio
Sequential Number: 010567

The only other difference that I've seen from some other 345's, is that my overhead storage doors are oak, Vs the roll-ups... The one roll-up in mine is in the back cap overhead storage area in the (cracked) interior shell.

It also appears that the unit -originally- had a Koehler generator, but there's an Onan Emerald in it now.

Thanks for the info-tool!

Molly (wife) and I purchased eBay item #2484082008, a 1988 airstream mh. 29 ft. Our production # is 10994-- a little older than yours MrGoate. By the way thanks for the email you sent and I failed to respond to ( still learning how to use this rather stupid computer). You are right though, the 29 footer is probably the perfect layout for two people. NEVER DREAMED WE WOULD FIND ONE FOR THAT PRICE!!

Wow! Your 79 and my 79 were just two digits away on the assembly line. Enjoy!

Ok I hate to throw a wrench in this thread, but since the AS portion of the motorhome was really built as a trailer...first....are the numbers just production numbers of trailers, and sequenced as such? Or were the MH's numbered in their own scheme? Just wondering.

Interesting, but there has to be a bit more to it than that.....

Look at the numbers starting with '82 -
9819 - '82 280 MH (Daddy4Bob).....

and ending in '90 -
11239 - '90 345 LE (90345)........

One trend has been verified, there is a progressively higher Airstream Number as the production years increase - that may be the ONLY thing that we know for sure.

8 years difference in the production run, but only 2,420 numbers (units?) difference in the serial numbers......total number of trailers built during those years HAD to be more than 2,400.....but I would suspect that there were not a total of 2,400 Motor Homes produced in that time span......

Anyone have any insight?

1979 24foot classic

Just thought I would let you know that we purchased a 1979 24foot motorhome serial number M24R9V5114. we have the owner and service manuals and the receipts totaling over $13,000 in the last three years. The gentleman had replaced almost everything, then, passed away. Do you have any idea where new outside compartment latches might be obtained, as two have one side broken off? Do you think it will hurt the value if we add power levelers, new hardwood flooring, and new upholestry? Thanks, Travis
