1981 27' Excella II

I'm confused. I have a 1981 execella II also. I just measured its length; over-all length end of bumper to end of ball hitch, which is 27 feet. This is just what the origional service maunal says is should be, I have the origional manual. The actual cabin length; is 24 feet. It is also a rear bath model. So what gives? There are no 24' or 25' listings for a excella II for this year in the origional book. Anybody out there can help clean this length deal up for me?

crusher966,
I was at www.airstream.com in the faq section under weights. For '81 they had Excella II's in 20', 22', 24', 25', 27' & 31' lengths. Strange they would have so many. I've seen pictures of the 24' with a rear/side bath best I can remember.

Craig: Thanks for posting the link. Your post made me curious, so I checked mine again. I checked the # on the vin tag of the trailer located on the front behind the hitch, and it has a 22 along with the code for the model description. I now think that I have a 22' unit. It measures 25' including the hitch.

Crusher966. You may want to see if you could find the vin tag as well.

Thanks: Charlie

Another 1981 Excella!

Man I wish I had a crack at getting the one you just got. We have been looking for a shorter trailer to go with our 31' Excella International.

Some of the places we have wanted to go have a length restriction and we are just over the limit. Also I figure if I had a second AS I could play with one and not worry about a time crunch (keeping it torn apart when we wanted to travel).

Congratulations on your new purchase.

-Alden

Under the history of Airstream is says Beatrice purchased the company in 1970 and sold it to Thor in 1980. At some point in the 70's no sure date stated they changed some of the frames to 3" from 4 or 5" - including the over 30' models with rear baths. Our 71 Overlander has a 4" frame everywhere I've looked at it. The owners manual says "Airstream a Division of Beatrice.
