OUR NUMBER 18d-0157
It also says CA 159
Also wondering how to replace the glass in the windows? It's 3/4 of the way remodeled (mostly inside) and don't want to go through the interior. Our local glass guy just shook his head. It's a small town. Thanks for reading
As the GreatPumpkin says, its a 1959
18 = overall length on feet
D = double bed originally
0157 = production sequence number
CA 159 = built in January, 1959
, Calif. plant.
The side window is a Hehr standard window, and the rear window might be a Hehr Clearview window. Rubber window gaskets should be available from Vintage Trailer Supply:

Nice looking redo on the interior. If you've got the time, stop by our Saturday afternoon open house at the Vintage Airstream Club's Rocky Mt. Rally in Breckridge, CO late this July:
