Photos now available

The photos of the trailer to be auctioned are now up on the Region 9 website

Looks like it has a pretty good shell, but the interior needs lots of TLC to say the least.

It does not appear to be a GT.
Can anyone chime in?

It's a 1961 24' Trade Wind

Fabian:

It did not appear to me either to be a 19' Globe Trotter, so I emailed the auctioneer and asked for the serial number, which is 24DSS0600 / 361. From that I determined it is a 1961 California built 24' Trade Wind double bed model with Land Yacht trim (meaning it is self-contained) built in March 1961. I've notified the auctioneer and expect the description will soon be revised.

Updated

The web site has been updated with the information posted directly above.

I had posted the information passed to me. It again proves the old adage that "Garbage in Garbage out!"

Time is about up

The auction of the 1961 Tradewind is over at noon CST, next Monday, 10/31

This trailer has a good shell, but needs a lot of TLC.

See it at http://www.wbregion9.org/auction.html

No bids

Well, we tried. There were no bids recorded.

The advertised starting bid price was $600. I'll bet that if anyone would make a lower offer anywhere within the realm of reason, it would be accepted.

If anyone wants to pursue this, email bushybstem@aol.com He was in charge of the auction.
