New 1959 Tradewind owner

Hi Brad,
I just uploaded some pics of my Airstream. The serial # plate was in one. I can send more of interior if anyone is interested.
Thank you so much for the toilet info! We thought we were crazy not seeing a tank below! Would one of those all in one Traveler tank and toilet systems work? Were you able to easily hook up a sewer hose kit to your new set up to clean things out through the existing hole? You can tell we don't know what were are doing and are looking for the simplest solution!
Also are there any manuals out there for the 1959 Tradewind? That information would be invaluable. We have not been able to find anything older than 1964.
Thanks for your help and for running this registry.
Kathy

Only one showed up and from what I can see, she's a beauty. Even has the folding table.

It wasn't necessarily easy to install the above floor black tank but it wasn't that difficult either. Nothing's really difficult, its just that some things take longer than others.

My 1959 Tradewind

Sorry, I just tried to attach a few more pics of our Airstream, but not having any luck. Any secret to uploading them to this site?
For the registry our serial # is 249010, and it says Jackson Center Ohio on the plate.
Still trying to resolve the toilet issue. We are thinking about one of those all in one tank and toilet. I think it is called a Sealand Traveler. Brad, when you put your new tank on, how did you attach it to the hole that is there for the "gopher hole". We don't see that there is any valve to shut it and don't know how to hook up a modern sewer hose to dump the new tank through that hole.
Thanks,
Kathy

I put in a black tank from a 1960 Airstream Traveler that a friend plans on renovating. It went right in and I built a box for it out of 3/4" plywood and mounted the Sealand toilet to the top of the box. The bottom had a screw in connection about 3.5 inches in diameter that a Valterra dump valve screwed into. I wish I had current pictures on my laptop here at work. I'll post a few pictures tonight. Hope that helps some.

Thanks for the serial number. I'll add it tonight.

Thanks, Brad. Looking at a Sealand Traveler toilet that is mounted right on top of a tank. That seems easy to install as long as we can get rid of the sewage through our gopher hole pipe. On our 1959's, was there a valve in that pipe that opened and closed underneath the trailer? Sorry to keep bugging you, but you are a wealth of information! Kathy

Actually, the "gopher hole" is what you dig in the ground just under your dump valve. You cover it up when you leave and pull the trailer away from the hole. The bottom of the tank had a threaded hole for mounting a dump release valve. Sorry but I don't have any pictures of it.

1959 sewer connection

Thanks for the info, Brad. We will explore that valve. Is there such a thing as a 1959 Tradewind owner's manual?

Still trying to upload pix. Will only take one at a time from me.

I love your outside light on the TV antenna mount in the above picture.

There wasn't an owner's/operator's manual until 1964. The factory did put out typed info sheets on some of the systems and copies of factory-supplied sheets on the brakes, oven controller, water purifier, etc. but these weren't always supplied. I have a few different digital files of these. I also have Airstream promotional sheets on the different models including both factory's TradeWind sheets. I have also drawn up sheets for the water, propane and 12 volt systems that I did on my trailer when I renovated it. PM me your email and I'll send you what I have if you're interested.

Thanks!

Thanks, Brad, I would love to have any info you can send me. I don't see the EMAIL button on this page to send you a PM. Am I missing something? I seem to be having techno problems with this site...sorry.
Yes, that is a solar light the previous owner put in the TV antenna holder. I like it!
