Weights, GVWR, Dry Weight, Hitch Weight, Hitch Ball Hight.

I will enter this informational document here just so I can find it in the future, as this stuff tends to disappear from the net.

I think I did post this on the trailer thread at one time, but I was not able to find it when I was looking.

This document lists the weights of all Airstreams products 'EXCEPT THE CLIPPER'.

http://airstreamlife.com/wp-content/...am-weights.pdf

Some of you may want to post it in another thread for general information.

Dave they may have missed the Clipper but they also seemed to have forgotten all of the Argosy and Classic Motorhomes.

Cheers, Dan

At the bottom of the document mentioned above is a rather important detail if you are looking for a used Class A in the 39' category which was on the XL raised rail chassis. Units prior to this s/n only had 36000 lbs GVWR but in 2003 the chassis was upgraded to 41000 lbs.


*Due to chassis upgrade, units before S/N 810839 in the 2003 model year 390XL have GVWR of 36,000 lbs.

Clipper Owners Manual

This document has not been available on line so I will post it here for future reference. Airstream has only posted documents back to 1998 and I suggest you print off any that are of interest as they tend to disappear when server systems are upgraded.

I am unable to post the various schematics but if someone wants specific pages of those, I can photocopy and mail them for minimum costs.

The LAND YACHT CLIPPER was an ongoing project and probably few were of the exact same specs. This document applies specifically to #10137 but some of the information is general in nature.

There is a restriction on size of document upload so I will try to upload it in two sections.

Looks like I am unable to upload this, so if anyone needs it, I can email a copy.

Dave

Clipper Wiper Re-fill

On the Clipper, Airstream used a 28" pantograph wiper with the 'wide base' bolt on blade assembly.

These assemblies used to be quite reasonable to purchase, but not anymore. The prices have got beyond the $30.00 with some quotes above $50.00 just for blade replacement. (mostly used by RV'rs so why not charge what the market will bear?)

Not many outlets carry refills for wiper blades anymore. However, RockAuto still has some old stock of the TR-71280 refills for the TRICO 67 Series blade. If your metal wiper assemblies are still in good shape, the refills are all you need. Always good to carry a spare, as traveling in remote areas you will find auto outlets give little chance of sourcing a 28" blade on short notice.

The blades usually fail after that hot spell and then the first rain, when the blade disintegrates where it is stuck at the bottom of the windshield.

This is the blade info below. the refills for these are eg: 71-280 (28")
The blades are wide saddle and bolt mounted.

67 Series - For Curved Windshields (Wide Saddle)
Trico's 67 Series heavy duty blades are designed for wide saddle
wiper arms, which are typically found on Class A recreational
vehicles, school buses, transit buses and heavy duty trucks. 67
Series blades are refillable with Trico's 71 Series heavy duty refills.
Part No. Length Finish Anco #

67-241
24" Black 52-24

67-261


26" Black 52-26
67-281 28" Black 52-28

Below is the TruVision equivalent.
