Smile HELP with VIN for newbie from Australia

I just purchased an Airstream - and have it waiting for me in California - very exciting!

I read with interest notes on VIN - and would like some help please.

I SUSPECT it is a 1962 - but now not sure at all.

here are the numbs that are on the trailer - does this mean anything to anybody - and can i determine what year and model this is from this ?


This numbers are in one plate:
24TS- 0381
11-59

This numbers are in another plate:
1150
DOH No 56296

It looks like it is a California built 1960 Trade Wind with twin beds. Built in November of 1959 (11-59).
It should look similar to these units here:
60Tradewind

hello from melbourne australia.

After much dechipering, i think that you are spot on the money!

i think too it is a 1960 model, manufactured in nov, 1959, in california. It certainly is a twin model, and i photos show it is a tradewind. It has bunks - not sure if that was an option in that year - or added later..

take care

owen
