It wouldn't be nearly as much fun to read if it were down to a science. These are just great. I've been poking through them all morning and learning all kinds of interesting layout options.

JP, thanks so much for making these available.

jpairstream,

Thanks for this work. Not a complaint, but a comment or request. Do you have any information on the 1953? 29' Liners. There are pictures on RJ Dial's site and I have a double door version and A-Merry-Can has a single door version. The two on RJ' site have different window configurations also.

I know that I would like more information on them and I am sure that A-Merry-Can would also.

Bill

Spec Sheets From The Mothership

What a wonderful treasuretrove of information. I definitely learned something new about the Argosy line. There is a 1980 brochure in the 1980 folder, but from all indications there were never any 1980 Argosy coaches produced. The Argosy line cancellation must have been a late term decision.

I would like to also add that if you notice brochures/specifications that are not in the correct location would you e-mail the specific model and year as well.

There will be times that the brochures may not be exactly like your trailer because the Ohio and California Production facility built items a bit different from time to time.

Dacia,

My friend Lee has a '61 Caravel with the working furnace still in place if your friend needs some info or pictures.

JP, thanks so much for making these available.
When Fred assisted me in organizing my files, the dates on catalogs maybe a year behind the actual model year in some cases. I can not vouch for this, but Fred can definitely give you direction.

Are these spec sheets from you PeeWee? If so, a big thank you to you, Fred and your mother's estate. This is fantastic and as a bit more info comes to light, it will be even better.

Kudos to everyone involved.

JP here are a couple of needed corrections that I found.


1974 Excella Floor Plans should be Fleet Floor Plans. (actually no Excella's are even included).

1974 Standard Specifications needs to be rescanned as the page is clipped and left hand information is cut off.

Is there any plan to eventually post the full brochures? As I see where some of the data is taken from same.
My thanks for your doing this service.

An excellent new resource . . .

Jim and everyone at Airstream:

THANK YOU for a wonderful new vintage Airstream resource. It undoubtedly took a lot of work to scan, resize, organize and post this excellent data. Thank you for doing all that for the benefit of all of us.

The beauty of the vintage Airstream hobby is that there is always more to learn. This morning I learned about two California-built trailers I never knew existed: the 1959 18' Comet and the late 50's 22' Spaceliner, a limited production model. I imagine they were Wally's reply to Russia's Sputnick! I know I'll learn more as I spend more time cruising this web site.

Brad, this wonderful project was done by Airstream's staff. I was as thrilled as you to see it for the first time. I imagine these materials came from the JC factory files, which would have started in 1952 when the factory opened. It's great to see these historical materials being shared on the internet.

Brad,

I do have catalogs over a span of time. Fred has seen them. He probably scanned those that he didn't in the VAC archieves.

But the hats should be off to Airstream, Jackson Center files. I haven't personally contributed to this webstie.

Again, everyone is doing a great job of making historical documents available.

Dale,

I thought for sure that when you took that walk across Pike Street to visit the original factory buildings you showed them where all the good stuff was hidden.
