Serial number of 1955 Bubble?

The number on the trailer is 210, nothing else. What is the significance of the number? Is this a 1955 bubble? According to Vintage Airstream's web site that is what it should be. I was wondering what all of the numbers (the few there are) mean.
Thanks BB 55 Bubble

BB 55 Bubble:

You are safe. Being very short trailers, there wasn't much room for long serial numbers on these Bubbles, so they got short and to-the-point serial numbers. It appears serial numbers for 1955 California built Bubbles began at 200 (or maybe 201??), so you have the 11th (or 10th??) one made for that model year. No need for a new identity.
