Question 1949 ??? What is it?

I have a 1949 AS SN:4003 (Main Street, LA, Ca) That I purchased aprox 13 years ago. Now I am trying to determine the model that I have. The body measures approx 20' with a overall length of approx 23' 6", and the ceiling height is 6'1". It looks like the tongue may have been extended at some point in it's life. It has a toilet and shower, with the necessary holding tanks. The front and rear windows are solid and curved and it has three sets of windows on each side of the unit, with two adjustable panes per window. The three vents on top have an adjustment for height on the front and back of each vent. It also has a propane stove and heater. Can anyone give me any idea's on it's model and/or possible value?

Thanks,
Ron

Can you post any pictures? It may help ID it.

There are also some e folks here that are very good with the "what is it mystery" so hang in there, someone will be able to help you.

In the meantime, have you looked at the Vintage Archives and the Price vs Condition guide, they may also help ID it and give you an idea of value.

Ron,

Does it look like the trailers on this site: http://www.vintageairstream.com/arch...ner/index.html

RJ also has information on values. Pictures would help in guessing value, but is probably depends on finding the right person to purchase it.

I've loooked at the pictures you mentioned and it is somewhat the same. But, the serial number is totally out of sequence. It has the same type of serial # plate but no additional numbers or letters on the plate just the 4003. In looking through old ads (on the net) it appears to be a "Globetrotter", but I can't find anything on the net to look at for comparison. It does look a lot like a liner based on the outward appearance, but the floor plans are totally different. Mine has a bathroom/shower in the rear with a double bed on the left side in the back (Water storage tank under it) and dinette in the front, with the stove and sink on the left and refer and heater on either side of the door.

Can't wait to see this one. A '40's model is supposed to very rare.

Shari,

Interesting, when I look, mine is post #2. Perhaps the software shows the authors posts first if there is a tie. I wonder which post shows as #2 for other than you and I.

Who's on First?!?

nice thread - I'm sooo close to driving away with a 1961 24' tradewind and I know nothing - well I've been now addicted to reading all I can about airstream & towing for the last two weeks - I need lots of input and advice and It looks like I've come to the right place.
