Unknown history of my Airstream

I remember that my dad purchased an Airstream when I was about 16 or so. I konw it's an Overlander 29 Ft and would like to know when it was made. The numbers on the side of the trailer are K 149 F11 and on the next line Overlander, on the next line Land Yacht, the next line A travel Trailer and the last line 127T9J166.
Can someone tell me the significance of these numbers and advise me on how I'd find out when it was made?
Thank You

Bill,
I agree with everything but the year. I think it is a 1969 because there are only 3 digits after the J. In the 70s they used 4 digits after the factory code.
