1963 tradewind refrigerator with globe

Looking for history on the circa 1963 refrigerator with the globe of map decal/image on it.
I cannot find out details anywhere. Is it related to the Caravans journeys?
Sorry I cannot seem to upload an image

Hi Kate,
That refrigerator door with the map was a part of the International trim package in 1963. Lesser Land Yacht Airstream models did not get it. I don't think that door carried over to 1964 models, but maybe some early 1964s got it, not sure. Exactly how it came to be is not known, but that was during the time when the Airstream Around the World Caravan (ATWC) was being planned, so that might have been the inspiration. The ATWC began in September 1963 (just after the 1964 Airstream models were introduced) and ran to November 1964.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for the information! If it was limited to 1963 model year, probably why Iíve been challenged finding information!
