Airstream Name ??

1965 "Airstream International Land Yacth Overlander" is what is on the right of the entry door; can anyone help me find a manual that I can download as we are trying to find one. Actually, unable to find much of anything using that name. Wanting to start restoration this summer; but without the information makes it hard. Thank you for your help.

Airstream did not produce service manuals until the early 70's.

You have a typo you've used twice - try "Yacht" instead of "Yacth".

I found this blog you may find helpful. Good luck - pics are really welcome here 😀

Off topic, but unusual enough to merit comment—

Even though you have posted three times in this thread alone, your post count is still "1" on all three posts. How did that happen? The Forums must be experiencing a glitch.

Welcome to the forums, and to the world of Airstream ownership and restoration!

What you probably have is an Airstream Overlander. That's the model name. Overlanders were quite popular.

The words "International" and "Land Yacht" referred to trim level and equipment upgrades. "International" models had features that non-International versions did not. The highest level was "Land Yacht".

A puzzling fact is that both labels are present on your trailer. Most trailers were labeled "International" or "Land Yacht" but I don't recall seeing too many with both names. But Airstream used all kinds of combinations through the years.

As mentioned earlier, Airstream did not provide owners manuals or service manuals until some time in the 70s.

But there is a ton of information out there on the Internet. A good place to start would be the Vintage Airstream Photo Archives, http://vintageairstream.com/photo-archives/ .

There is a section specific to Overlanders here on Airforums, http://www.airforums.com/forums/f22/

Finally, I invite you to join the Vintage Airstream Club (VAC) a division of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI). http://vintageairstreamclub.com/

Through WBCCI and VAC you can meet and correspond with hundreds of like-minded individuals, and you can see their trailers and compare notes at rallies.

Best of luck with your trailer!

It's not uncommon if the person posting uses the browser back/forward arrows to navigate after posting.

Alice, we were all new at one time, and we've all had problems learning the software ropes.

You're fine, no problem! Good luck on getting the info you need.

That must have been the way they badged them in 1965. Here's a picture from the Vintage Airstream Photo Archives.

Owner's manuals for most of the models can be found on the Airstream website dating back to 1964. Searching briefly, I found the Owner's manuals for a 1964 and 1966 Overlander, but not a 1965.
