Airstream 101 Class Needed!

Hi LilNomad here,

I have recently purchased a 75 Trade Wind from another forum member. Since the trailer is located in another state, I decided to have it hauled here to me, unfortunately that means I will miss out on the one on one training from the previous owner. I need to take an Airstream 101 class stat as this is my first trailer and I have no idea what im doing. Need to locate a forum member or class that can intro me to my new trailer..I have visions of me and the trailer standing there staring at each other confused.
Dont even bother to ask me bout Towing/Hitching 102 im still working on securing a tow vehicle. Will give you all ample warning before I try to hit the road.

Airstream 101 Class Needed!

Greetings LiLNomad!

Welcome to the world of Vintage Airstream ownership!

While not a direct answer to your questions, I would suggest the following to ease your concerns about living with your Trade Wind:
  • If your coach doesn't come with one, obtain a copy of the owners' manual as it will help to answer many basic questions as wellas provide you with a ready reference source. One source for reproduction owners' manuals is airstream at this link.
  • If you plan on making many of your own repairs, a factory service manual may be of help as well. Once source for reproduction factory service manuals is Airstream at this link.
  • Consider attending a Forums Rally even if you don't attend with your trailer. Airstreamers are always happy to welcome a new owner to the family and you will find a vast treasure trove of information available to you from these members. You can find a list of Forum Rallys at this link.
  • You might also wish to consider visiting a WBCCI Rally. Again, this is a source of vast Airstreaming information. You can find information about WBCCI Rallys at this link.
Good luck with your Trade Wind!
