1969 22'???

I'm planning to go look at an airstream at a salvage/scrap yard this weekend. The seller claims it is a 1969 22' AS Internationl, but based on my research this model is non existent. There are very limited pictures but I can tell it has rear international badging and a dual axel. The one interior pic shows an L shaped counter with stove and sink on the left hand side just inside the door. I think the seller has the year and/or length wrong, I THINK it may be a globetrotter but being a newbie I have no idea. He does have a clear title. Im hoping I dont make a drive to see a larger unit than i am looking for. If anyone has any info that may help I would greatly appreciate it!

There is only one 1968 and older 22' tandem axle trailer I am aware of, and that was a custom order for one of the WBCCI units. If in fact it's a '69 or newer, the smallest Airstream with tandem axles would be a 23' Safari. And of course they go up from there.
If the seller is measuring trailer length, a 22' body would be a Tradewind or Caravanner. They are both 25' long, including tongue and bumper.

It appears to have an emblem to the right of the door with an eagle or some sort of bird on it??? Don't know if this helps.

That might be an aftermarket bubble level in a popular thunderbird design of the time. If so, its of no help in identifying the trailer.

Ask the seller for the year and VIN on the clear title; those should help you (and us if you post them here) identify the trailer.
