Here is another one for you:
Chassis 1FDJS34G6SHB68717.
Airstream 1B9KGVA25SJ301014.
I purchased it in Wisconsin in 2008. 3rd owner. I think it was originally purchased in Michigan. I bought it from a fellow here in Wisconsin. It has been an awful wonderful unit. Had 69000 on it when we bought it and today it has 159,000.

Got it! It's one I didn't have in the database before. :) Thanks.

Update! We're up to 12.6% of the B190s in the database.

I had a thought tonight. We don't know how many 1989, 1990, and 2000 B190s there are - our information is incomplete. But it occurred to me that we could at least calculate an upper limit. The highest 1999 sequence number we have is 1342. We also know there were 1393 made. So, 1393-1343 = 50. Therefore, at most, 50 B190s were made for the 2000 model year.

The lowest sequence number for a 1991 is 193. So at most 192 were made in 1989 and 1990.

Knox_Gal reports her sequence number for her 1991 is #189 (down from 193). So now we know at most 188 were made in 1989 and 1990!

Hi Skater:
Thanks for developing and keeping this database. And I love your VIN decoder! You may well have my 1994 van in your database, but in case not, here is an updated list of the particulars. I copied your “must have” list below so I’d be sure to include what you asked for—

Chassis VIN: 1FDJS34G1RHB72040
Year: 1994
Airstream VIN: 1B9KGVA21RJ300842
Purchased by Keystone: 11/24/2009 in Boulder, CO with 37K Miles
Current location: Keystone, CO, 80435
Approximate Mileage: 80K as of 7/2019

Notes:
2009: 4x4 conversion and 6”lift by Boulder Off-road
2013: Jasper Stage 1 Transmission
2015: 17x9 Ultra Soldier Satin Black 188 Wheels
2017: Warn Locking Hubs
2019: Powder-coat custom winch bumper, Black wrinkle-finish


“The one piece of data I must have is the chassis VIN. If I didn't have that info, then I didn't record it, because it'd be difficult to match it up later. Aside from that, I've also recorded the B190's year, Airstream VIN if available, date spotted, site I saw it on, location (down to city/state, if available), the username of the owner, and any other notes (such as if it was a 4x4 conversion).”

Thanks! Did not have this one before. Where are you located? (City, State if you're comfortable with that. Or just state.)

The Airstream VIN is embossed on an aluminum plate above the radiator under the hood. It starts with 1B9.

You're welcome. One of these days I intend to get the database online so it's not just me in my dark cave.

I didn't have your B190 in the database, either!

Also, my father and I were in Durango and Silverton last August. :)

Hi, thanks for doing a great job.
I’m just curious.

My Airstream VIN are missing but my Chassi are 1FTHS34M9KHB80109 I think I’ve post it earlier.
But I’m now curious if someone knows about any other Airstream like our?, is it possible to find it’s Airstream VIN some other way?
Our rig seems to looks differently in a several ways.

7,3L Diesel
Sliding door
No generator
No factory louvers for the refrigerator.

Unfortunately many of the original parts are missing like interior, LPG tank, holding tanks etc. and replaced with newer ones so it’s difficult to see how it was equipped from the factory.
I’m trying to get info from previous owners but had no luck so far.
I know it’s first registration in Sweden was 1992.01.20

Interesting! There were rumors of a few diesel-powered B190s but this is the first we've seen. It must be a very early model; sounds like either an intentional custom job, or they were experimenting with possibilities.

Here's the airstream VIN and it's in Kansas now.

So many things to add to the forum, like nearly 10K of stacked up repairs after buying ours in Cleveland in February, 2018 (generator rebuild, lots of electrical parts malfunctioning, full fluid exchange, re-seat the a/c unit, fix unseen shower leak, new water pump and hot water heater...). It's been a fun and reliable vehicle for us thus far. We call it the Turtle, but spell that Tourtle on the plates. We are the fourth owners, and it's moved from the midwest (thankfully covered in the winter, and all three previous owners were in Ohio) to the PNW, where I know of two or three more locally.

Ford VIN: 1FDJS34G2THB40172
Airstream Serial Number: 1B9KGVA22TJ301165
Year:1996
First purchased and driven off the lot in March, 1998.
We purchased in February, 2018 with 62K miles or thereabouts. Now in August, 2019 it has 72K.
Key upgrades by previous owners: bilstein shocks and helwig sway bars. Don't leave home without them.
Key upgrades by us: see above to make it fully functional, plus Viper alarm and electric locks, new sound system.
