Unhappy Need help, any exterior width of airstream less than7'6''?

Hello everyone :
Is there any airstream travel trailer whose maximum exterior width is less than 7'6'' except for Argosy Minuet?
I would like to buy a small vintage(16'-22') and ship it by a container whose door width is 7'8''.
regards

Welcome to the forums!
AFAIK, all pre-1969 models were 7 feet or less.
(AFAIK= As Far As I Know)

Thumbs up Open Container (not beer)

Back when I worked in and around seaports, I remember seeing a container that was open on the top and sides, and could be covered by canvas or a tarp. An older (read narrower)Airstream would fit inside, barely. Have you given any thought to the height issue? Most Airstreams are between 9-10.5 feet tall, and most containers are only 8 feet or so tall.

Hi,Terry,

I have asked some seller on Ebay how wide they trailers (before 1969) are, 90% said 8' , one guess 7'6'' but not sure.
thank you Terry, Rre you sure all overlander63 are less than
7'6'', I prefer to find a samll(16'-22') narrow vintage suitable for a container instead of shiping by Ro-Ro.

any one eles knows any that the exterior width less than 7'6''.
