So...O indictes Overlander 20 indicates length and 8 indicates year model 68. Still no idea how all these papers got the year 1964 on them. At some point...someone must have typo'd and no one ever caught it?
It's best to have the title corrected as soon as possible, so that it reflects the proper information for you.

You would need that info, in case the coach was ever stolen.

No telling what all that would entail...ugh! But we haven't registered it yet....I wouldn't know how to go about getting all that changed. But I'm sure the ladies at the court house will know.

You know today, many many things can be done with paper work.

Some legal, and some not.

Wonder if you can go to the County Courthouse and change your date of birth?

Hey, you never know.

Your body, would love it.

Well, to each his own. I'm making my Airstream "mine" too... That's where it's at!

Clearly, you are familiar with the highly recognized Artist Antoni Gaudí, or "Gawdy", as he has become English slang for us...

By the photos, I was going to bet on early 1968. My 68GT was built in Ohio cSep. 1967, and I'm so surprised that Airstream could co-ordinate such similar looking trailers from different locations. Curious, was all the factory construction debris swept under your bathtub too?? I've been wondering if that's just an Ohio procedure.

Anyway, Isn't it fun making it "yours"

It mistakenly indicates a "0" (zero) as an "O" (letter). It stated the "O" stands for Overlander when in actuality it is intended as a "0" (zero) which is just a placeholder when the "Land Yacht" level of finish is present. "I" was used for "International" finishes.

The term "Overlander" has always stood for a length of trailer, not a level of finish.

Regardless, looks like you are enjoying your creative restoration...we need more pics as you progress through it - can't wait to see how it all comes together!

They were all Overlanders or Internationals.

Then, later on, the Overlander meant a 26 or 27 foot Airstream, depending on the year.

That comes from the old Airstream books.

CORRECTION.

The "O" stands for Landyacht, as per Airstream 1960's documentation.

Sorry for any confusion.

Andy

I will definately keep you all posted with my progress. This upholstery job may get interesting.....well I say may...it already has. Because I know or at least I think I do that this isn't the original couch cover. There were lots and lots of staple holes in the arm rest that looked like a couple previous jobs had been done. Plus....as I am ripping seams....I'm finding some seams are 1/4 inch wide..barely holding fabric together...and some are over an inch wide. Gonna make cutting a new one out from this pattern and gettin it sewn back together again for a good fit a real chore. I don't know anyone....that would put something together with seams like that. LOL

I hope...when I'm dead and gone...and the next person comes along finds my job better than the one I'm dealing with haha (although they may think I was a nut case because of the paint job *snicker snort*

Lovely...another 100 plus degree day....and we are out trying to refab one side of the cabinets to house the new refridgerator....and the A/C decides it doesn't wanna work right. I think it's the themostat not functionin properly because every so often the compressor kicks on and it does blow cold air...but not often enough to stay out there and work. Uhgggg....and we were making such good progress!!!!

How Fun!!!!!! I will probably end up with a renovated one, and was wondering what people have done with crazy wallpaper, instead of putting up expensive wood. The birch looks gorgeous on the vintage streams, but it may not be in my budget.

The cabinet facer boards in ours look to be oak....then the cabinet doors and other paneling are birch. Then someone along the way decided it all needed a coat of varnish. I like the color of the cabinet doors and paneling...but the facer boards don't match at all. So durin our redo..I will sand down the finish and try to match stain to the existing paneling.

Then there's the pocket door to the bathroom. I think it's got a formica like veneer on it. One side is the green/blue stripes....like's on the rest of the bathroom cabinets...then the side that shows to the rest of the trailer when the door is shut...is some kinda fake oak wood grain...that they put varnish on. Originally was a blonde finish. So I'm not quite sure what I'll do with that door yet.
