OK - some here may be familiar with my introduction thread:
The Airstream my Step-Mother purchase back the week before Christmas - she described (she hadn't actually laid eyes on it before purchase!) as 30" and either 1968 or 69.
She finally got the VIN3 off the insurance forms and emailed me that number (posted below).
This past week, her and my father went and actually took a look at it. She was impressed with the overall condition - one window leak that doesn't appear to have done a lot of damage. Plumbing redone a year ago. Apparently all "stock" and "original" as best as her uneducated eye could tell (outside of some shag carpet...???)
But she said it is suppose to be a 1968... and that the plate/logo on the trailer says "Sovereign"...
But the VIN she sent me, if I am reading it right, is for an 1969 Overlander... Am I wrong?
In my reading:
30=30' (according to A/S figures...body+tongue)9=Model Year
8= 1968 model year
J=Jackson Center plant
255= two twin bed configuration
So--- Where did the "Sovereign" come from? The A/S corporate page isn't much help.
