Molly & Brian - Welcome to our little group. We become more attached to our Winick every year, and can't imagine parting with it. Each season it seems we make some small change that improves it's functionality for us, and after all these years have probably got it dialed in about right.
Enjoy it, and be prepared to give a lot of tours while camping.

Thanks for the welcome. We're looking forward to dialing it in ourselves. This trailer was bought and then stored so all is original. We'd be interested in knowing what changes you feel were the most needed/beneficial. That said, I can tighten a bolt on the hitch make the rear bumper fall off. It's an unfortunate but often demonstrated talent of mine........Brian.

Brian,

Buried in this thread are various discussions on changes people have made or would like to make. Nothing major, mainly just annoyances that Airstream overlooked.

Those that come to mind first that we did are mouse proofing, ripping out the crappy audio/video system (and speakers),and method to keep the drawers from flying open during travel. Also be sure to plug up the back bumper tray as thin items, including the awning the pole can actually fall out the bottom onto the highway when driving.

Looking for Airstream 75th Anniversary...

We are looking to join the family and wondering if any owner would be interested in selling to two Airstream fanatics? Any guidance is appreciated.

Welcome to the standby club. I have been on the side lines for years...still waiting to find one of these. Had a chance at number 5 but she slipped away. Sigh If anyone is selling or knows, don't hesitate to email me via clay (at) haskellfilms (dot) com Cheers.

Chucke,

The 75th year insignia is just that... trailers that were built during the 75th anniversary year, so not really any 'specialer' than other years.

The David Winick special edition however is a limited production unit which does make it 'special' in that there are a somewhat rare model. Only 75 were make.

Its very easy to recognize the Winick special edition as the door has a round porthole window in the door rather than the usual square one.

Winick 75th Anniversary Bambi #57 for sale

Hi everyone - We are going to be selling our Winick Bambi #57, which is practically brand new. We were the second owner and we only camped with it three times. The prior owner never camped in it. We started farming a few years ago and we just can't get away enough.

We would like to get $50k for it, which seems to be the going rate for one in excellent condition. If anyone knows anyone who is looking for one, please contact me at hdavis18@mac.com. I will be glad to send pictures and answer any questions. The trailer is located in Statesville, NC.
Thanks very much.

We took our unit in for a few things a year ago, and the Airstream dealer replaced one tire. Afterwards I was thinking... why did they replace just one tire???? Stupid! Tires were already 9 years old. They should have replaced both due to age!

Lesson learned.... anyways I want to replace the second tire and I am currently not close to the trailer. Can anyone tell me the brand (think they are Goodyear) and tire size code so I can order another one?

Would be great to have 2 people confirm so I know we have the right tire.

Thanks

David Winick has a new venture: Acme Cider Company. As I know we all love our 75th Anniversary Winicks', perhaps you'd like to support David on his Kickstarter page. He's given us so much joy using the camper he designed, I'd love for him to succeed with this, too! Check it out.

Baby moon hub caps

Every time we take our baby moon hub caps off to torque the lug nuts it is a nightmare trying to get them back on. We already lost one of the originals and had to buy new ones....They are very hard to get on and DENT. Any suggestions to help us to get them on easier without denting them...Or wanting to throw them across the yard!!!!
