New Member - Introduction & Question

Hi there... My name is Lisa and my husband and I purchased a 2013 Sport about a month ago and we are loving it so much!

We run a small business with lodging and events in Texas and just purchased (today) an old vintage Airstream to turn into a rental (bed & bath) to keep parked here on our property.

Please forgive me, I'm not sure the correct forum to post this question but I was hoping someone could help me determine the year model and any additional information on our new "Gypsy Rose"

Thanks!

I would agree but am NOT a pro so hopefully another one ( melody ranch) is and yes you are in the right place! Your rose looks to have had a rough life, do you have any interior pictures?

I agree that the Airstream is likely a 1965 Overlander Land Yacht (26-foot) that started life with the center twin floorplan (based upon side window arrangement).

Interior Pictures

Here are some interior pictures. We purchased it from a lady in Austin, Texas who used it as a beauty shop and also did massage therapy. She did a nice job on the inside and said she had the sub-floor replaced and all the wiring replaced, installed a new air conditioner and more I'm sure. She didn't know much about it except she bought it gutted and salvaged and because we only wanted it parked we were fine with that. We had a good rain today and didn't find any leaks.

My Gypsy Rose

Thanks for the great information! I believe I have found it. It's a 1965 Overlander Land Yacht (26-foot) just like overlander64 said. Based on the windows in the back it looks like a Double bed layout with curbside galley. Most Overlanders from 1965 appear to have four windows across the back and my Gypsy only has three. Does anyone know a website that might have original flyer, plans, etc?

I have found a similar one online.

You might find the following archival information posted on Airstream's website to be of interest:You can also order a copy of the original 1965 Overlander Owners' Manual from the Airstream store, but it may not be overly useful since your trailer has been extensively modified.

Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin
