VIN help on a 1959 airstream...

I'm so sorry to have to ask, but I don't seem to be clever enough to work it out from the posted links.

I have a 1959 with the identifier of "22T 0175"... I'd love to know what it means.

Thanks so much.

Whoops just saw it's an overlander in your profile...is it possible that the second 2 is actually a 6? Then it would be a 26 foot trailer and yes, an Overlander

Arryana -
The VIN number indicates that your trailer is a 1959 22' Flying Cloud model with twin beds, manufactured at the California plant.

Thank you so much, your information is undoubtedly more correct than my profile, which was just a guess at the misinformation I'd been given over the years.

I'm afraid pictures would be a let down, it's very much a "before" project. It needs pretty much everything, it's always been everything I could do to just hang on to it, I've never had the option to get it worked on (yet!)...

Believe it or not, we love "before" pictures. And I can practically guarantee that some of ours looked much worse at the start.
Don't be shy

Just a quick note....I am looking at a 1959 flying cloud with really good skin. However it is empty inside. What did you pay for yours. The guts is asking$8500, but that seemed a bit steep. I was looking at a price closer to 6k. A response would be greatly appreciated

6K is way too high. Skin only I would not pay more than $1000 and that may be too high.
