Mine is a 1990
Airstream: 1B9KVGA21LJ300122
Ford: 1FDHS34G9LHA61113
It's been in Orlando, FL since Jan 2014. Bought in Mississippi (carfax - and dealer sticker - said it was originally sold in upstate ny)
I wrote a quick little program (I'll put it on the web at some point) to decode Airstream VINs based on the document that usachris linked to above. For testing, I was throwing in VINs from this thread, and it took me several minutes to figure out why yours didn't validate. Turns out the G and V are swapped. :)

Hello! Although I recently sold my B190, I wanted to add the VIN information to this thread for your record-keeping.
It's a 1990 Airstream B190 on a Ford Econoline 350 body.
Ford VIN: 1FDHS34G0LHA99765
Airstream VIN: 1B9KGVA29LJ300157

Let me know if you need anything else.

Cheers!
Heather Hacker (former B190 owner) :(

I've uploaded my VIN decoder here (for now). It can also decode Airstream trailer VINs from 1969-present.

Hours of fun!

Next up, I want to write a "VIN creator" that will let you kind of do the reverse to help figure out why a VIN isn't decoding correctly.

I just wrote a little program (not online yet) that will pull records for a given VIN. For example, slapthecat's (sorry I keep going back to you, but I happen to have two records for your unit in the database):
Spotted on: 2007-11-25 on ebay; Location:
Spotted on: 2017-03-24 on b190.com; Location: Orlando, FL
I also want to write a "VIN builder" that will help diagnose errors in the VINs. And a data entry form to make it easier to add B190s to the database. Actually, the latter thing is probably more important...right now it's a bit tedious.

Hi Skater,

here are the numbers for my 1994
Ford - 1FDJS34G8RHA83291
Airstream - 1B9KGVA21RJ300789

She was purchased new in Nokomis Fla. and spent most of it's time in Louisiana then Mississippi. I purchased her in 2013 in Mississippi, and drove her out to Sahuarita, AZ.

Currently, I am slowly restoring most things in the interior. The only major change is removing the sofabed and replacing with a dinette over the generator box.

Skater,
Per your request, the following is the data for our B190.

PA # : 13991
ISSUED : 8/'93
FORD VIN# : 1FDJS34G5PHB57635
SERIAL # : 1B9KGVA2XPJ300660

The vehicle was sold new in September 1993 to a family living in Lake Havasu, Arizona. The second owner bought it in Arizona and brought it to his home in Lexington, Kentucky. Also living in Lexington, KY we became 3rd owner in 2012.

Regards, Kentuckian

I've updated the VIN decoder; it's now much more complete. Enjoy. It will work with any vehicle VIN, including trailers, cars, and trucks.

Looks like I have 91 unique B190s in the database (not as many as I estimated before). Amusingly, I have four that have shown up 3 times each in the list. :) I continue to work on this as I get time, which is why progress is slow.

From this post...:
Sheila G wrote:Sorry I'm just getting back to you Skater; I've been in and out all day. I didn't know there was another vin #. I don't think the person who sold it to me knew either. The number is 1B9KGVA20YJ301379. Do you know if there are any other 2000s out there? I'm really curious to know.
That was a huge help, Sheila! We know they made some in 2000, but not how many. Yours is the newest one we've found! It's also the only 2000 I have listed in the database.

We now know there are at least 1,343 B190s made; it's likely there were at least 1,379 if Airstream started with sequence number 1.

General update - here's what I have now:
VIN Sequence numbers: 300036 - 301379
There are at least 1,343 B190s.

Number of B190s in database: 102 (7.6% of 1,343)

Breakdown by year:
  • 1989: 2
  • 1990: 11
  • 1991: 16
  • 1992: 12
  • 1993: 17
  • 1994: 13
  • 1995: 15
  • 1996: 14
  • 1997: 12
  • 1998: 3
  • 1999: 9
  • 2000: 1
