Question: Tradewind/Overlander 1968

I went to Airstream.com and according to my serial number I have an Overlander??
O248-S588
But I was told it's a tradewind. Is it a Tradewind and an overlander? Or is the O for something else. I don't have the trailer on hand to visit, only the manual with the serial in that old bumpy label tape.

You have a 1968 Trade Wind 24' Land Yacht Made in California. It is not an Overlander.

You do have a Tradewind, 24' . On some older coaches, the "O" signified it was built in Ohio, rather than their Cerritas, California plant. However, the "S" in your serial number shows it to be built in sunny California, and the "O" means it is a Land Yacht, rather than an International trim package, which would be and "I" instead of an "O".

In reading all the responses regarding the VIN number corrections, no one mentioned a form and the police. When I purchased my "Baby" 76 Argosy, I realized that the VIN number was wrong on the title. At first I took a pic of the VIN # plate after running a pencil over it so it would show the numbers better. When I went to the DMV (Illinois) with the pics, they gave me a form and said that I could have the police verify the correct number, have them fill out and sign the form and they (DMV) would send it in with the title.

I do have to say that someone ignored the attached form the first time around and the title came back the same "wrong" #. But it is being corrected now with correspondence from the local DMV.
