Mystery Part - Any idea?

hi all,

We've just purchase a 68 globetrotter which had a bunch of misc parts inside. We're a bit perplexed on what one is in particular. I've linked to two pictures of it below in the hopes that maybe someone here might know what it is!

Many thanks in advance!

We have a 67, and a part looking very much like that one is the backing and brackets to hold/store your shore power line in the back compartment. I guess somebody removed the part from yours.

We also have a 67 & Lynn is right, that piece is in the rear compartment & the power cable wraps inside on the 2 hooks. Adios, John

I have a 68 GT also and it reminds me of the inner door on the rear storage box. The hooks are for th power cord to be wrapped up on. Are u sure it's a 68?

Hi Randy...

well, now that you ask - I'm not sure it's a 68! I was told it was at the sale but don't have a title yet (have to pick up the paperwork to start working on that). How would one verify? I'm assuming I'd have to look at the serial number?

I got my info from the web. Look up vintage airstream and you should be able to read your year and make data from their chart. If you can't find it I'm sure I can find it for you. Good luck.
