How are Airsteams measured ?
Another curious issue that comes up when discussing Airstream length is how Airstream went about determining the advertised length of their trailers. For instance, the actual measurement reported in factory literature for my '64 Overlander International is 26' 8" and it was advertised as a 26' trailer. My '78 Argosy Minuet 6.0 Metre according to factory literature measuers 19' 3" and it was advertised as a 20' trailer. It almost appears as if the practice was to round down in the '60s and round up in the '70s.
