Fred , Thanks for the info, The serial number is sequential starting from 1000? So mine is the 118th airstream liner made since the beginning? Has someone been keeping track of the trailers found so far?

AAAAUUUUGGGGHHH that is so dang cool!

Hi, I'm Susan. You will soon see I am attracted to things that are unique and unusual (my poor hubby puts up with me, what a sweetheart!), and yours sure is! What a neat trailer. Thanks for posting the pics!

Good luck with it, and post pics of the things you do to it. We all love pictures here.

Susan

Oooo! Thanks for taking the time to figure out picture posting.

Ron, that is so TOTALLY awesome!!! Congratulations on your find, it's just so cool that it's hot! It looks to be in remarkable shape for a '48.

Hi Ron:

The serial numbering is sequential for each different length model during the late 1940s. The 22 foot long Liners began at serial number 1000 or 1001, I don't know which. So your 22' Liner is the 119th or 118th 22' long Airstream Liner built after WW II. The 28' long Whirlwinds had the 2000 series serial numbers, the 16' Wee Winds had the 3000 series serial numbers, and the 19' (then 18') Trailwinds had the 5000 series serial numbers. Each X000 series is numbered sequentially.

I'm not aware of anyone keeping a close count of all different length Liners, but I have written down all the 16' Wee Wind serial numbers I've come across only because I own one. Maybe someone has done that for the 22' Liners. Many, but certainly not all, 22 foot Liners appear on R.J Dial's web site cited earlier.

Great trailer, have fun with it!

Hello Ron.
I loved 40's Airstream too.
I hope you enjoy to see the process of this replacing ..
Of course you don't need many work like this!

Wow, what great trailers. One of them would sure look great behind our 1948 Cadillac Sedanette. That is if I ever get the car finished. Thanks for all the pictures and information. I'm going to subscribe to this thread.

Thumbs up Nice Find ! !

WOW ! ! What a nice find you've got. Love the layout.
Your trailer is going to be really something when you're done.
My husband and I are currently working on our 59 Tradewind.
Few years "newer" than yours but still a beauty.
Good luck and happy renovations......
