Exclamation 1965 26' Airstream Overlander with bunk bed - SEEKING MY GRANDPA'S AIRSTREAM

Hi all,

I thought I would post this again, still looking for my Grandpa's Airstream. Probable locations - WI, MN, IL, OH...

Hi all,
I am seeking my grandfather's 1965 Airstream Overlander - last known location Rockford, IL. My grandpa sold it before he died to a Rex Stageman in Rockford, Illinois from his home in Beloit, WI. We don't know where it went after Rex sold it to buy a boat.

We didn't know he was selling it, and would like to have it back in the family! It has been a 10 year search thus far but I am not giving up. I have the VIN number but it's an old trailer VIN so computer VIN searches don't work because it's a different amount of digits than modern VINs.

If you have a 26' Airstream Overlander with the full bed in the back and bunk bed, I would be forever grateful if you could check your VIN! That bunkbed was installed for me when I was 4 years old, and I spent many vacations up in that bed reading my little books when it was raining. Thanks to all who have already tried to assist. The hunt continues:

My grandpa:

Marvin Batchelor
Beloit, WI

VIN J026539
