1981 22' Excella II

I saw a 1981 22' airstream excella II on ebay over the weekend.
Are these Argosy's in disguise - are they different than a typical 23' trailer - are they smaller?
Curious what they are all about.
thanks,
Steve

Steve,
They are a full blooded Airstream. The Excella was an upgraded trim and equipment package (read heavier ) I have not determined what the difference was between the Excella and the Excella II. At various times in Airstream history the Excella was only on the larger models and then used across the entire model line for a few years...nothing like consistency

I was looking at the Airstream weights pdf chart and it shows this trailer at 3200 lbs and 380 lbs of tongue weight.
It seems like they must have trimmed some fat somewhere.

I've seen a picture of an '81 Excella II in that length several years ago. If I remember correctly, it had a rear corner bathroom. It had the blue vinyl stripe down the side and had an upscaled interior just like the previous Excella 500 line. The picture of the one I saw was for sale and looked like a nice trailer. I imagine it is a dream to tow.

Ummm, yeah...a 22' would be smaller than a 23'
