Globe Trotter not in 1969 Manual - Why?

I just recieved the Owner's Manual for 1969 Airstream Trailers, however there are NO GLOBE TROTTERS of any size listed in this book. I bought it from Airstream, the Company.

I have a 1969, 21' Globe Trotter. Does anyone know why it is not in the manual?

1969 Airstream Manual
My '69 Globetrotter came with the original manual which states that it was "designed specifically for" the 18 Ft.Caravel and 21 Ft. Globetrotter. There may be more than one manual for 1969 and they sent you the wrong one.

1969 Manual
dickwhite1 is right on this one. Ihave the original manual with my '69 Caravel and it includes the Caravel & the Globetrotter information.
I have never seen the 'other' 1969 manual (that you have) but have always assumed that most of the contents would apply to all '69 Airstreams.

69 manual
For what it's worth I ordered a copy of the manual from Secretaral Services for my '69 Caravel. It had some references to Caravel and Safari but no Globetrotter. You might try asking Sharon of 69GT21 fame. I think she told me she had an original manual?

I now know that there definately are two different owners manuals for 1969. The folks at Airstream, however do not have the one I need. I need the one for "Caravel and Globetrotter" 1969. (Alas 69GT21 has already sold hers.) Would anyone be willing to copy theirs for me or send theirs to me to copy? I will be willing to pay for all expenses and shipping. A print shop could do it, if you don't have time to do it yourself. I will pre-pay you.

'69 Caravel GT Manual
I also am looking for a manual for my "new" '69 Globetrotter. We're just getting started on the project, but my husband would be much further ahead if we had the manual, too. I would love to get a copy, too and would be happy to pay someone for it. Any luck?

Contact Helen Davis of Secretarial Services at 937-492-8885. She can provide you a bound copy of the Owner's manual for your '69 GT.

Does anyone know if the information on this thread is correct? Just bought a 1969 Globetrtter and the owners manual is missing two thirds of the pages. Looking to see if I can purchase a copy or someone very kind can send a scanned copy! Thanks!
