Smile Does anyone know...

what year and model Airstream trailers came with 3 windows (1 large rectangular, and 2 oblong; 1above and 1 below). The pictures I've seen show 2 sets on one-side (near the door) and a single set on the back-side.

I believe this configuration is on Overlanders, Ambassadors and Sovereigns but I don't know the years.

Please help, or correct... whatever is appropriate.

Thanks,
Rick

Actually, I think I reversed it... it should be "1 set on front-side (near the door) and two sets on the back-side".

I don't think that they have that type of configuration in the rear , just in the front.


Here is my 74 Sovereign

Almost always sunny here unless there is a hurricane bearing down on you. And then it's time to hook up the burb and roll. So far I've been very lucky.

1966 models had the stack windows, tne one below the opening window.

1967 models started with the vista view windows, the one over the opening window.

The 1969 models started the wing windows, the 2 small windows along the sides of the front window.

Hope this helps you.

Then there is always the possibility someone went custom on it too

FWIW I have been toying with the idea of doing a full blown custom on my 1980 Excella II. Adding a second door, putting wrap windows and vista views in the rear and the center of the trailer, and just generally messing with people's minds

I have seen some rear bedroom units with Vista Views over the bedroom windows IIRC they were from the mid 70's. I believe the VV over the bedroom windows was an option and most people didn't choose it, because you would lose the overhead lockers and the needed storage.

I appreciate the info but I'm trying to nail down models and years so I know what type of Airstream I' looking for. This will mainly help with posted ads and newspaper/magazine ads... but this is the type of rig I'm looking for... which shouldn't be confused with the fact that if another Airstream came sauntering by at a good price and in good condition (for the price) that I couldn't be convinced to change plans...

I'm not skitzophrenic... I just want the Airstream I want or something equally as nice. :-)

Hmmm, guess I missed this post. Check out the model archives on RJ Dial's site, the 70s Overlanders and other long trailers have something similar to what you're descrbing:

Some late 70's years of Argosy trailers had the rear Vista-View windows too.
