Thanks in advance!

Your 3016 VIN# falls right in line with the 3001-3154 numbers listed...

The VIN plate may not be OEM to this AS. See recent posts in SarahB's main thread, as linked recently.

Flat Bed Trailering a Liner

It has questions regarding how to get a 1948 Airstream from one end of the country to the other (without going crazy and/or broke). But, I also wanted to know if anyone has any idea how many 1948 models (22' Globe Trotter/Liner) are out there. I think there were originally about 400?? made.
As another Liner owner, don't know which model mine is due to all the variance, you can trailer the 22 foot liners on a flat bed. I picked up mine from my parents a couple years back and put it on my wife's family's 20' flat bed hauler. I towed it very close to 700 miles to get it to my home, and the only problem I had was all the looky loos on the road. I took as many pics as I could, even if my wife decided to take long distance shots so there is not as much detail in some of them. There are a couple of "DO NOT DO" things that others have mentioned throughout the years that may help. Let me know for you want a longer version and I can type it up here.
