Arrow 1979 Land Yacht

I will soon be looking at what is advertized as a 1979 27 ft. Land Yacht. Owner does not have specs. Is this really a 25 ft. or did AS really make
a 27 ft. in 1979. Any suggestions as to locate specs. on this forum ?
Length should not include the tongue, right. This AS is in good condition.
Should it be worth the 8000 asking price ?

Jim,

With Airstreams, the length includes the tongue. The serial number plate in front of the door should have the exact model name, ie, Tradewind, Ambassador, Sovereign or Safari. A list of Airstream trailers by year is here: http://www.airstream.com/airstream/p.../weights-1.pdf A serial number translater is here: http://www.airstream.com/airstream/p...pre1980vin.pdf The serial number will give you the exact information.

Land Yacht is just a trim level and not a model name.

Good luck,

Bill

Our 1978 Ambassador is 28 feet if that helps. We live fairly close to you in Kenton (other side of Wapak) if you need any help. Don't hesitate to holler.

Just to let everyone know, we looked at the 79 AS this week and had to pass do to the layout and various issues with the interior and lack of maintenance. AC and awning upgrades could quickly add to the cost. Twin beds are number one on our short list. A newer model ( 89 to 95 ) would suit
our lifestyle . STILL LOOKING...
