VIN Confirmation??

Hi all, my wife and I purchased our first airstream tonight and I’m looking for some insight or confirmation on our VIN number as we need to apply for a new title. The previous owner thought it was a 1973 but after scouring online for the last couple hours I’ve come to find we purchased a 1960 Overlander, I think. The serial number plate says 26TS-0344. It is the Twin bed Rear bath model, 26’ long, made in California. My question I guess is, will this be the VIN number I put on the title application? Or will the stamped numbers on the A-frame tell/show more? I can hardly make those out and only a few numbers. Thanks for any insight!

Here is a great VIN/SN guide. https://vintageairstreamclub.com//wp..._1959-1979.pdf


Looks like a 1959 or 1960, That S/N/VIN is what should be on the title.

Thanks Bubba, Utah is the same way here with having the VIN on the title. My question was, is the serial number on the door tag the same as the VIN? I know the older models/years have a longer VIN number so I wanted to make sure Iím using the correct number/tag for the VIN on the title. Iím having the trailer towed home this afternoon so Iíll post more pictures of the frame numbers to help sort this out.

Thanks Damon! I was looking for a guide like that for the earlier models. But looking at that chart it appears we have a 1959 possibly. Looks like the 1960ís has a different S/N pattern.

Robbie, some older Airstreams had a number stamped on the tongue and some didnít. The Airstream tag beside the door is the VIN and what is used. Airstream changed the number design through the years to depict different layouts and models.

This seems to confirm that it is a late 1959 Overlander. Great to know!
