That certainly is an unusual trailer. I'd say it's a 24 footer that is a custom ordered model with the slight modifications as the dual axles. The side windows are the older style as noted above but the front and rear are the Clear View and have an awning rail or something above them. The old art deco style name plate is below the end windows but someone has put the newer block letter style above the windows. Strange. The dual battery box below the front window is lower than I've seen before too as well as the center placement of the rectangular vent in the ceiling as previously mentioned. The four digit SN is a stumper though.

I'm really intrigued on this one so post us all a picture of the serial number plate, maybe that will help ID this unique gem. Inquiring minds want to know.

Nice catch on the deco style name plate. It is so faded that I didn't see it and was wondering about the newer style ones above the windows.

BTW - 1959 was the first year of production for the 24 foot TradeWind at both factories and I have not seen one with the pre-Clear View windows. I suppose it could be an early CA plant TW since the lowest number in my registry for CA is 114. This one is a puzzler indeed.

Fingers crossed here for you.

I think you got it! 1958 Custom.
Have you measured it to see how long it is tongue to bumper?

Just got back from measuring it...its 22'...looks like it has 2, YES 2 freshwater tanks! as well as 2 axles...COULD it be a World Traveler? Looking at Vintageairstream.com it states there that the only 2 axle of 22' is the WT....Thoughts?

Did you measure from where the stock bumper NORMALLY is or from where the extended bumper is? (OR FROM THE "SPARE BUMPER")If it isn't a World Traveler then it is a custom 1-off factory copy ... would be cool if someone could trace the WBCCI #s.
(how much?)

Yes, we measured from where the stock bumper is normally located; there to the tongue is 22'. The other bumper probably sticks out 2' or a little better. Still stumped... waiting to hear back this week about the offer and hoping someone can chime in with some help on the Wally number!!
