Hello! I am totally lost. Have no idea what I am doing or how to get a reply so I am just trying. I inherited an Airstream trailer today and find out I am totally challenged as to Airstreams. I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to determine the year of the trailer I have. I have no paperwork and the only numbers I can find are the large red club numbers (1185) and numbers on the plate near the door that says it is an Overland 1267S651 2027. It also has the word International on the side and is about 24 foot long. Thanks!

Welcome! The numbers on the plate should tell it all, to someone that can interpret. Sorry, I can't help you there but someone will soon. This time of day, the activity starts dropping - may have to wait until tomorrow for an answer. Good luck.
Dave

Does it look like one of these: 77Overlander

If so, it is a 1977, 27 foot, Overlander could the "S" be a "B"? If so it would be a center bath with a double bed.

Bill, thanks for the comeback. Hope to figure this system out soon. No, it definetly is an S and I would guess it to be around 24 foot.

It looks like you have figured the posting part out just fine. It takes a while to find all of the different areas and functions of the site. I'm still learning. The site has such a wealth of info, it has been a lifesaver to me at times. And saved me $$.

The "1" at the beginning of your trailer's serial number is really an "I" for International trim package. It is a 1967 model year, built in California, and is the 651st trailer off the line that year. Your trailer is officially 26 feet long, including tongue and bumper.
I= International
26=Length in feet
7= 1967 model year
651= sequential production number. Over 500 is a double bed, under 500 is twins.

Thank you so very much for all who responded to my very first visit to a forum and my very first ever post. Thanks to Terry I now know what type of Airstream I have. Everyone has been so great and helpful I am sure I will learn much and hope to maybe contribute some at another time. Terry, (or anyone) you mentioned that my unit would be considered twin beds. I really only have one bed on the side that appears to be 3/4 and I guess a second bed where the table is. Is this what is considered twin beds? Thanks again.

Nope, that would be a double bed. Twin beds would be one on each side of the trailer, either in the center, for a rear bath, or the rear for a center bath.

Your sequential serial number is over 500, so your trailer would have come from the factory with what I call "an RV double" bed. Bigger than a twin, smaller than a double bed like you have at home. Very cozy, if you aren't a "wide body" like some of us here.
