Location of 67 VIN on A frame

Hi Folks,

Where is the VIN on the 67 frame?

I have been removing paint and have not found the VIN.
I did find a small plaque riveted on the curbside frame mentioning battery polarity.
One poster said there was not one there on his 67.

Greg

Hi Greg. There's not a badge to the right of the door? Not a sure thing depending on what the previous owner did...

The VIN will have the format seen in the upper left corner of this webpage - 67Overlander

VINs on the A frame seem hit and miss for older units. On my '74 Argosy they were about 1/2" high numbers on top of the curbside box frame just behind the LP tanks. Tanks, antisway setups or just plain paint can block these -- if they're there at all.

Thanks for the quick response.

The plaque by the door with the VIN is there intact.

The serial number is stamped into the frame near the LPG bottle rack, usually on the curb side.

Remove all the paint. Carefully inspect both sides of the A-frame for the serial number.

Also, look for marks from a grinder. Back then, people would steal the trailer and remove serial numbers.

How do I know??

I was with the Insurance division of Airstream, which was called Caravanner Insurance Company.

What is the serial number as posted on the plate near the door?

Andy
