Manufacture model/date timeline?

Does anyone know of a site that shows all the makes/models and the year they were produced? I know, for instance, that the trailer we are looking at is a 1978 Tradewind International, but can't find any info on this year, only up to 1974. It would be nice also to know if AS had different "levels" or categories for the same year. Example: 1978 Gold, Silver, Bronze models, etc...

I have heard some say that the International during this time period (1978) was AS's top-of-the-line models??? Don't know! Can't find any info.

Can someone help?

A '78 is just old enough to be considerd vintage this year. It's still a current enough model that you can often find sales brochures on ebay that would talk about the differences or maybe find someone here that has one and could share information.

The Vintage Airstream Archive site may be helpful. It gives a visual comparision of models 25 years & older, '78 is included, although there aren't any pictures posted yet. You may want to check some of the earlier years to compare. Not all the options are spelled out but if you spend some time there, you'll get an idea of how different units were outfitted.

Also the Model Heirarchy thread went into some folks understanding of what was included in the International package.
