1969 Airstream


I'm a new member and looking to buy my first airstream. I have two questions. First, were there any 1969 models that had a mid-trailer bathroom (as opposed to a rear bathroom)? I've only seen rear bathrooms in my research. Secondly, is this year a valuable/good year to buy? If not, please let me know what you think the best vintage years are to buy. I'm looking for a ~24-30 foot trailer with rear bedroom (if you think this is a good set up for a couple traveling). I'm obviously open to lots of information and opinions Thank you so much!

I think the rear bedrooms started in 1973 for the Ambassador and Sovereign models. Later years the Overlander had rear beds as well. If you look at the document archives over at you'll be able to see different floor plans for each year.

I think the 1969 is desirable to many. It has the more current body style, and I believe is the last year of the wooden cabinets (i.e. pre-dates the introduction of all the plastic stuff starting in 1970??).
