Tradewind floorplans

Does anybody know where I might get an idea of what these 25' Tradewind floorplans look like? Also, are there Tradewinds of 27-28' ?

Thanks!

Well, a couple of things...

....first of all, a 25 foot trailer is a Tradewind or a Caravanner. The name tells you the size and vice-versa. An Overlander is a 27 foot trailer.

A good source for this stuff is the vintage airstream photo archives at http://www.vintageairstream.com/archives/index.html

The Tradewinds, I believe, all have the rear baths. The center bed choice is either twins, with a bed on each side of the center aisle, or a "double," which is a fold down couch opposite a dresser slash cabinet thingy.

The front sleeping deal is almost always a fold-down couch. Our dinette is fairly unusual. This picture set shows the dinette in front and the twins in the rear: http://www.vintageairstream.com/arch...Tradewind.html

Dear Ds.,
I can email you a very accurate 1/2"= 1'-0 scale plan of our '65 Airstream Trade Wind Twin 24' if that will help you. Stuart Resor RESORARCHITECT@aol.com

To add to DR boyd's post,
Some tradewinds after 1971 had larger bath, with the galley being moved forward into the living area. Ours has a small wet cell type bath, but a large front room. I thin it's about 18in of difference. You can sometimes tell by a much shorter streetside front window. The three main windows on my trailer's streetside are all the same size.

Thanks for the offer, we're focusing on a double or queen, not sure how similar those plans would be, but my guess is they're pretty different.

Beds

When buying vintage I guess beggars can't be choosers. I just got the Tradewind with the pull out double instead of the twins on both sides of the aisle. Love all the extra storage that way but wonder how this old coot is going to crawl across to go to the head at night. Those two bed arrangements seem to be the two options in the 70-74 Tradewinds.

The twins seem more practical than the double pullout that would have to be made up at night and put away in the morning.

I'm reading this older thread, the front dinnette seems like a cool option/floorplan. The link to the pic of it is not working, anyone here have a pic of a 72 tradewind with dinnette? I might be crazy, how hard would it be to switch? I have seen some wonderful custom work in photo's here, true cabinet craftsmen, but that skill is not one of mine. just a thought now, considering it's still 3 hours before I get my TW home. MPJ
