There are Allen screws in the window knobs.

This project is looking good!

This season’s project is to get rid of all the silicone I have used for the last 5 years around the window, etc, replace with silkflex 221. Paying the price for quick leak fixes.

In the north we called our Airstreams "travel trailers". Campers is more common in Colorado. Different regions, different manner of speaking.

Here is the silicone mess I had to pick off my Trade Wind. It took several hours to get it all off the places where is was slobbered on.

We literally have to keep picking at our Airstream renovation projects.

Hey, I spotted an old Trade Wind today on a dealer's lot. I don't know the year exactly but it has the three round lense tail light cluster. It had been gutted inside.

I figure it would be a good project for you.

The trailer was not on the sales lot. It was parked close to the service building. I assumed it was a customer's trailer in for repairs.

Sorry to imply it was for sale. Air Forums is a good place to search if you are looking for one.

Steve, I have recently purchased a 1972 Tradewind. I have looked at your posts and see you have done what I hope to do with mine. Are there any pictures of your completed shower/toilet areas. Also, I am in the IE area of California. Is the welder you used still in business?

Thanks for the additional pictures. SLO is a good distance from me in the IE. I will look for a welder in my area. Did you use the original black water tank, also, what size shower pan did you use?

As you might see from my posts, I added a grey tank in a bed that the welder made. I also needed headroom in the shower, as well as turn around space. Two problems came from those needs. Trying to get a slope for the drain to the tank under the rear bed, and finding a shower pan to fit. I ended up just building and sealing the area from wood.

The old black tank was shot and in an unusable place. Once again I needed a good slope to the drains in the back, so ended up getting a new 15 gallon tank that sits above floor level. The platform under the toilet is part of the tank. Do notice the air tubes coming up in both applications
