I think I just joined the club. Just picked up a 59' Tradewind 24D0294 from the original owners. She is pretty straight and towed well through the bay area traffic today. It was sitting under a rusty overpass and some of that transferred to the skin. Lets hope that comes out. Looks like the PO extended the bumper for a box and switched out the tongue jack and flipped the axle under the springs. Other than that its all there. Pretty excited to get busy on it in my spare time :-)

I just came across this thread. #24D-106-858, Monterey, Ca. I don't know what the last six numbers mean.

Congrats Doug. Those last numbers mean yours was the 106th TradeWind off the CA assembly line and came off the line in August of 1958. We're only a few numbers apart so I'll bet they're not that much different other than you have the double bed and mine has twins. Do you have a couch up front or the booth?

Hi Brad, My trade wind has the couch up front. The back folds down and there's a new fresh water tank in there. I must read this whole thread before i go much further. Doug.

Brad,

It looks like mine says 659 on the same plate. Does this mean mine is June of 59?

Thanks Vinnie
