Repair/ Service Manuals

Did AS produce Repair / Service Manuals for their Trailers? If they did where could I find one or a copy of one? I’m now the proud owner of a ‘73 Safari and have some small repairs to accomplish.

There is a 73 owners manual available.

However for a service manual, there is a 72 and 74 available.

The 72 manual is ok for your 73.

The 74 manuals contain different plumbing systems.

Hi and welcome to the forums. The Airstream Store has them available or you should be able to order them thru an Airstream dealer.

Two questions: does anyone know if the 1976 service manual is very much different from the 1974 one as it concerns my TT?

Also, that item in The Airstream Store only allows the choice of year for a given service manual. Is each year's manual good for all models current that year?

I may be interested in a swap. I ordered a service manual for a 72 from AS on Andy’s advice. When I get it let me take a look at it. Would you consider this new copy an "Original”?

I don't think they printed manuals as such till some time in the ealry '70s... '72 was the first one, I think.

IIRC, it was just a collection of pamphlets from the manufacturers of the individual parts, like the stove, refer, etc.

Yes 72 was the first service manual. There are earlier owners manuals which in my opinion don't tell you what you probably already know.

What the heck does IIRC mean anyway?

I am not sure of what you have except the names sound like owners manuals.

Service manuals are about one inch thick, and cover most all the models for a given year, in terms of how to repair most everything in or on the trailer.

However there is no service manual for an 83, but they are available for an 82 and 84 trailer.

Andy
