Question Finding out the year?

I have the chance to buy a '31 foot land yacht, sovereign but I'm not sure what year it is. Neither is the seller as he inherited it from a family member. Is there a serial number or label somewhere? I"ve walked around it and only see the large emblems. Nothing for sure on the tounge or anywhere. Is there something inside? Thanks.

Hello grapples -- welcome to THE forums!

There should be an Airstream nameplate on the outside of the trailer near the door. The VIN is embossed right there. You didn't give a ballpark of what era trailer this is. On my '06 there's a VIN plate low on the roadside near the front. On my '74 Argosy it is below the front window. VINs also were stamped on the right side of the A-frame sometimes but that is frequently obscured by layers of paint or U-bolts. Sometimes there's a sheet of paper inside on the wardrobe door giving the actual GVWR of the trailer; I'm not sure if the VIN shows up there.

See http://www.airforums.com/forums/445047-post8.html or http://www.airstream.com/docs/pre1980vin.pdf for how to decode the year. The VIN and year would also be on the title.

Thank you Bob,

I'll check those places. I need to make a more thorough check anyway. The seller thinks it's an 80's model but I'm thinking it's older. You're in St. Could!? Are you in that Air Park near there?

I live in St. Cloud. The Air Park is at Clear Lake on Hwy 10 about 15 miles east of here. It might be a nice place for a Forums rally some day. Got to get going on that idea.
