Unhappy 1961 Safari Owners Manual

Would anyone have a copy of the owners manual for a 1961 22' Safari model they would be willing to share with me. My wife and I are new to
the club and are looking into purchasing this model.
I would be happy to pay for copying and mailing costs.

Thanks
Devin

You won't find an official owners' manual for your 1961 Safari as Airstream didn't publish its first owners' manual until 1964. A 1964 owners' manual might help you on some of the basics, but there would be a number of differences on your 1961 particularly in regards to electrical and plumbing systems. In 1961, the first owner of your coach was provided with a manilla envelope including manuals for each of the appliances installed in the coach as well as literature for options and accessories provided with the coach. Some basic instructions sheets were also likely included that may have varied according to the dealer who originally sold the coach.

Today, you best option might be to go through the coach and record the manufacturer's name and model number for any appliances for which you need information . . . . then post that information to the Forums, and you will likely hear from a Forum member who has a copy of the manual that they might share with you.

Good luck with your Safari!

Kevin

1961 safari owners manual

Kevin,

Thank you for your response to my request for a 1961 owners manual. I would have never guessed that they were not made available until 1964!

I saw on Ebay that copies of owners manuals can be purchased for around $20 and I wonder if they would be helpful. I guess I was just looking for specific information regarding my specific make and model, but doesn't look like it.

Thanks again for your helpful response. I look forward to learning everything I can about these great american icon's called "Airstreams".

Devin
