Question What year is my Overlander? '61 or '63?

My Sn# is I263D138. Does the 3 mean 1963? or does the 1 after the D mean 1961? Anybody know the code? My title says 63...and by all accounts it looks like other 63's I have seen...but I can not find the proper window gaskets so now I have no idea what I have....Z.

The VIN breaks out as follows
I = International Trim
26 = Feet long
3 = 1963
D = Double bed
138 = Sequential number

Based on the format it is an Ohio built trailer.

That would be an identical layout to mine, in the same year, but you have the International trim, which will give you a different panel on the front of your refrig. Mine is a Land Yacht.

Sinks and tub, as well as countertops, are usually a different color on the Internationals as well.

That would be the extremely rare, and much maligned, nautical version. The "U" signified that they went underwater, the "C" meant they were designed to be used at or above "C" level...

my 67 tradewind VIN is- 1247S526. I am confused, I think I have a double bed. What does the S mean?

The S means it was built in California and the 526 (over 500) means that it is a double bed arrangement.

Thanks- I have heard that the VIN's are confussing. This would appear to be true.

Yes, the serial #'s were different depending on the factory. Ohio-built trailers tend to be a little easier to figure out. I can usually do it without my secret decoder ring, but I need it for the California trailers...
