Question 260502t

This is the only VIN numbers on my 26 ft Overlander.My title states it is a 1973 but I think a 1960. Can anyone tell me the correct year for the VIN #260502T. Thanks JP

Your Airstream, is a 1960 26 footer, twin bed.

That comes from my old Airstream serial number sequence book.

Airstream, Inc :: 70s

Paste the above into your browser. It's an Airstream Factory site and will help you. Also a few pics would really help. Your VIN appears to be a 60 not sure what the T represents.

I beg to differ with regards to the "O" standing for Overlander...that's based on a faulty document that has roamed around in the Airstream archives for years. It mistakenly indicates a "0" (zero) as an "O" (letter). It stated the "O" stands for Overlander when in actuality it is intended as a "0" (zero) which is just a placeholder when the "Land Yacht" level of finish is present. "I" was used for "International" finishes.

The term "Overlander" has always stood for a length of trailer, not a level of finish.

Regardless, the "T" indicates a twin bed layout.

60 Overlander
