Airstream Date of Birth

Looking at the capacities emblem on my Airstream and I noticed a "date of manufacture". It is listed as 8-13/86. I know this seems like a question with an obvious answer - but I just need to confirm that is what it means.

Does A/S place the actual day the trailer rolled off the line on these units?

The reason I ask is because this is the first trailer I've ever purchased (about 3 months ago) and 8/13 is my birthday - very cool if my trailer and I have the same B-day! Would seem it was meant to be!

Very funny - I was not born in 86 - only born on the same month and day as my trailer. Still probably one of the younger members at 30.

Hmmmm does not look like anyone knows the answer to your question - I'm curious myself - I would think its the date it rolls out of factory, but that just a guess.

Also interesting that I think the date on my '04 Classic is month and year only. My '01 Safari had month day year.

So Jack I guess what your saying is "yes" they used to put month, day & year on the trailers capacities emblem.

Would be very interested to know if that is day it rolls off the showroom floor. Anyone have an answer? - good piece of trivia.

Given the fact that the tag is attached at the factory I would gues it would either have to be the date it was started or the date it was completed.
