Help with Globetrotter Identification ??

Hello All,
I’m looking for some help sorting what year type and any other details you may have about this Globetrotter I just picked up.
Thank you for your time in this matter.

Based on tail light's alone I can tell you that you have a 1965 trailer.

Those outie plastic rear lights were only used in 1965.

The tag by the door says land yacht and that is a trim line but not sure they made a Globetrotter in 65.

The serial number is also telling but I don't have the decoder memorized. Look at the "Airstream" archives page or Google vintage Airstream serial numbers for help in deciphering it.

How long is your trailer bumper to ball?

Is it single axel?

What is the side view?

PS

66Overlander is an excellent Airstream historian and may chime in with.

It looks like a Ohio build and has some ghost WBCCI membership numbers on the upper rear.Click image for larger version

As already pointed out the tail lamp housings and serial number confirm it is a 1965 20' Globetrotter, specifically one built in Jackson Center, Ohio.

Thank you

Thank you for all the information and replies about the Globetrotter, I’m looking at selling it so that someone can restore it and bring back to life. Were is a good place to list it for sale?

This Forum has a classified section that is great and will likely receive a wide audience.

Your local craigslist might keep the lookers closer to home.

Airstreams as well as RV's in general are a hot ticket item right now. That is not to say a high dollar value but hopefully lots of attention.

Clean it up, take good photos, be honest about what you know. Be reasonably helpful and have be a clear title.

You can look in the classifieds here at the vintage listings to see prices and conditions.

Good luck, we love our Globie.
