forgot to make one more point

As BigEd52 said, the 50s/60s models are popular and the Tradewinds are just cool. Point being: your Airstream, due to its vintage, will be greater than the sum of its parts when complete.

Go check the vintage trailer classifieds - thorough restorations add another decimal place to the value, and in your case, it will be two!

It is all the same how much money an old AS costs. One must simply know that the new construction of a rarity costs finally more than new.
All other is a botch-up!

I can post pictures if anyone wants??
Congrads, I think you did good.

Welcome Uhmanduh.... and YOU SCORED!!!!

I have a 64 Tradewind that started off in better shape than your Tradewind is in at this time..... Paid more than $300.00.... and ...... I am doing that same thing that you are going to have to do to make sure that the trailer is road worthy, safe and the restoration is done correctly.... I am gutting mine and re-doing EVERYTHING.

$300.00..... you really lucked out!!!!
