the WBCCI #96 sure is interesting. id love to hear the history of this.
Looks like it's parked at the Terraport at JC, interestingly. Wonder if they had it in for service. Leaks, perhaps...?

That is in Jackson Center, currently. It was parked outside the service area during Alumapalooza, anyhow.

One Possible Translation: We tested it all out, and used the plumbing, and didn't winterize it, and now everything leaks!

Notice it says it was used, then separately it says what it has...

People are slippery!

Well something happened, the listing "has been deleted by its author".

My Airstream travel trailer is in average condition. One good sized dent I'm going to fix. Needs new carpet and awning. Air conditioning works, refrigerator doesn't. The AS forum says this model in average condition goes for $9,000.

Yes, that's pretty shameful. $9000 claimed value, and the amount of problems he lists... It's an "as found" and maybe worth $1500?

Seems like I misread the value guide. I just took delivery of the trailer and am not even sure about the year. By the door, I find these numbers (hard to read so might be off)

06127 F1
12562 J 1656

Up high on the front are the large (faded) numbers 12938.

I'm guessing that the number with the J in it is a VIN?

I bought this without a title. Anyone know anything about how to get a title?



While I owned an AS about 30 years ago, effectively I'm a newbie

VIN & Title...

Hello Doctormark,

Welcome to AIR Forums.

Based on the VIN supplied (12562J1656), I read it as an International (1/I); 25 foot TT (25); '6' is baffaling as it should be a 'B' for Center Bath Double Bed or 'A' for Center Bath Twin Bed or 'T' for Rear Bath Twin Bed or 'D' for Rear Bath Double Bed; 2 is 'x'2 meaning either '62 or '72 and looking to the last digits there are four which makes it a 1972 model as the '60s only had three digits; J stands for Jackson Center assembly plant.

As for Title recovery, there is a section under ‘forums’ a sub-directory of ‘Title, VIN & Registration’ where you will find answers to your question(s).

Good luck and welcome again.
Chris
