They still sell the grey boomerang formica. Even Lowe's can get it for you.

Here's a quick update on the Tradewind. Got the plumbing in, though I'm having some trouble with the original Grohe marine faucet in the bathroom and some tiny leaks. Bathroom surfaces refinished with tile paint, new countertop, furniture stripped down and sanded to bare mahogany and then recoated in Danish Oil, dinette structure built, and table pedestal on order. Also built my son a mahogany bunk bed to match! I am beginning to see the light...

That looks awesome Brian. Nice work. Hey, a word of advise. Put a layer of sheet aluminum between the stove and the interior of the galley cabinet to keep the items under the sink safe and cool. I did this and it really cuts down on the heat under there and now's the time to do it with it out of the trailer.

Hi, would love to hear how your tradewind is coming along! I just purchased the same model for import to Melbourne, Australia so would love to see what you've done with yours

I don't know where to start and I am not a great handy man

Hi everyone,

I bought a really good Tradewind 1966 in exterior I think good condition.
I m looking for someone to help me to redo it or getting a quote as I don't have a lot of time. Crazy project but I love the airstream.
Thanks everyone.
