How do I Know if an Airstream has electric brakes

Looking to purchase an airstream and am trying to determine which makes/models/years come with electric brakes. I am currently looking at a '68 28 ft Ambassador.

Crawl under it and look at the back side of the brake backing plates. If they are electric there will be wires going into the backing plates. Check both axles as some only have brakes on one axle.
