Trying to find out what year it is.

Hi All
This is now at my home my problem is that the Vin number is as follows
I 27 T 9 J 296 now talking with the technician at air stream he says it is a 1969 by the ser. number but everything i found on line concurs with what he says. He then ask if it had two hings or a single hinge i told him that it had two hinges. The info that i got from all of you looks more like it is a 1979 with flip handles on the door and round corners on the windows. Now here is the kicker. I just got the Owners manual and it says it is a 1974. Who is right???

Looks to me that the 9 in your vin stands for 1979

If it is a 69 it will have square corners on the rear window, square corners on the outer bottom of the wing windows in front and a protruding type door handle. The water tank will be in the front under the couch with the fill on the front of the trailer. If it is 1970 or later the door handle will be recessed and all window corners round.
