Congratulations on your purchase. I am also still on the fence about restauration vs renovation. I have decided to keep the most of the blue bathroom in our 1967 Overlander. Not sure yet about the rest of the trailer.

I really want to retain the 60's charm while bringing in some modern touches and convenience. I would love to see examples of this.

We have already added some touches like an outdoor shower, new led lights, light up marker lights at bottom sides of the trailer, new fantastic fans etc... All systems will be new. As for the rest we will see as we go!

Good luck on your decision.

My logic has been the same. My only goal is to make our Tradewind better, if a change does not improve it, then I am not going to change it. I have also installed all led interior lights. I used the original light fixtures. Our bathroom is totally stock except for the "Curve" porta potty. This has also allowed me to use the original black water tank as a gray water tank- I did not have to add another tank. I am planning on adding an outdoor shower. Do you have photos of your outdoor shower? Sorry about the hyjack.

Hey Dan
Here is a photo of our outdoor shower. I would have really liked to place the shower,electrical plug and propane hook up behind a door but there just wasen't enough space inside to do this, so this is what we now have

Our 1967 Tradewind

I don't have any outside photos at the moment. I took a bunch of detailed inside photos but I'll get the outside ones soon. The original cherry wood cabinetry is in great shape but we're going to pull out the gaucho and replace it with a homemade dinette/bed.

Last pics for now

We bought a new (used) furnace that is only 2 years old, and it looks like we will need a new fridge. The current one refuses to run on propane and it only gets down to 30 in the freezer and 50-60 in the fridge. We'd like a bigger one anyway but it might mean losing the cabinetry above the current fridge.

The stove and oven work and appear to be original. The original green bathroom is a hoot! That flap back behind the toilet is called the Hamper. Or so it says in the owner's manual. The wacky accordion folded shower curtain is in one of these pics. It folds and snaps against the wall when not in use. It's the craziest thing I've seen, but it's in excellent shape, so I'd like to keep it as an oddity even though it is too short to be of much use.

Could you post a picture of what it looks like inside the cabinet above the refrigerator? My '67 came with some home handyman work there. Currently I am re-manufacturing the cabinets and I'm interested in what was original.

Your 67 Trade Wind looks like the top trim "International". Yours have the darker cabinetry which is more luxurious. Do you have the "flags" on the sides of the exterior shell?.

There was a major interior design change in 67, it looks so different than the 66 models, especially the bathroom.

I put the Dometic 2510 fridge in mine. I think it is a 5 cu ft unit with a freezer. It seemed adequate to us and fit in the same cabinet nicely.

Looks like you found a good Trade Wind. Have fun with it.

Actually the shower curtain was a pretty neat idea. I don't shower often in the trailer due to no grey tank and I'm over 6ft. but when I have it works surprisingly well in keeping the water in the tub.

You can paint the lavatory and tub if you don't like the green. Mine was white but had yellowed. I used a 2 part tube and tile epoxy and after 8 years it still looks great.

@rasmuw - above the refrigerator is a very shallow cabinet with two horizontal bars in it. I think they were meant for hanging/drying kitchen towels. It is so shallow because the fridge vent runs behind it. The vent also runs behind the cupboard above so that one is also very shallow. It would be nice to eliminate that vent if possible and get more kitchen space.

We're going to keep the green bathroom but I'd like to polish it up somehow. Does anyone know how to restore the shine to the plastic? Is it even plastic? Could it be fiberglass or some such?
