Rivet Outside, a point of interest

Did you see?
Just thought you'd like to know in case you, either missed it or, do not subscribe to this magazine.
The April, 2003, issue of Outside, has a very cute insert for the making of a special "postcard". It's located between page 78 and 79. The deal is you get to create your own postcard from a scenic mile marker 73. Using little icons to create your own image of what you think the roadway looks like. Well, one of the cute icon is no less than an AIRSTREAM~!~ It looks to be either an 'Overland or Landyacht'.
I'm wondering if there's anyone who can tell for sure?
I'll post it here..
ciao

Looks just like the 74 27 ft Overlander that was our first Airstream. Rear bath by the location of the Water heater, and window locations.

Thumbs up Thanks

Brett,
That was my first guess but, I couldn't zoom in to be real sure..
This was one of the first tries using the scan feature on my new printer (PSC-2210). The first scan came in at 1.5 mp and, the picture was a huge 8x11 size...lol
I used a real neat program, called "Xnview" to scale it down to "fit" here..
How long did you have the Overlander??
ciao

We had it less than 2 years. We traded up to a 77 31 foot soverign.

We loved the bath in the overlander, but the sleeping setup was the only reason we sold it. It had a side bed mid coach, and the front couch. We wanted to hava a rear double, and that was the big reason that we changed. Grey water tank size was also an issue. on the overlander.

Airstream lists a 27' rear bath Overlander-International-Land Yatch for 1974-75-76

It looks a lot like our 1974 29', one less window.

Yes,

It's a 27 footer, an Overlander International, 70 something and looks to have a couple of good axles under it. Ask the man who's got one?

If the rear window has square corners, it's a 69.

Definitely early 70's, definitely. The round window corners and the tail light surounds are the clues for me. It would be a 70-74 model based on the lights, I think they changed from the round taillights to the square ones in 75.

Talking Yeppers

Brett

I have to agree that, the windows appear to be rounded..
That's interesting to note abt the changes to the taillight..
Speaking of which, I wished that A/S hadn't use the "plastic body style" on my unit. Last summer, I upped & replaced them as they were 'peeling' and, the lens were so awful looking from the UV'. I fell in love with the Aluminum body with LED that's on the newer CCD trailers..(I tried to see if that would fit but..no way) lol
Everyday, it seems that, you see more and more examples of A/S in ads..
ciao

Tail light pattern needs to be settled

I believe my 74 Excella has square and rectangular rear lights.
The inner most and 3rd (of 4) from center rear are square with a round raised relief in center of square lens . Would you guys be calling this configuration "round"?

It would be nice to really know about the tail light patterns. Unfortunately many of the posted pictures do not show a tail shot.

My web based reference

When I have questions on a exterior feature that I need to confirm I go to: http://www.vintageairstream.com/archives/index.html

It is a free site, but they are soliciting donations. There are a good many pictures of airstreams and they are laid out in a year/model grid.

My 74 had the round lights, my 77 had the square. If Airstream changed it could have been in 74 late and they just started using the newer style. Te model year changes seemingly blend from year to year. No real cut off point as far as I can tell other than big things like windows, and shell shape.

Looks pretty similar to me:

1974 International-Land Yatch-Ambassador. Not 27' but a 29', but I suppose they have the same butt.
