Question Question regarding lengths

Please don't laugh at me but, when an ad reads 1971 25' Tradewind, what is the 25' referring to? Is the overall length or living space length. I couldn't seem to find this info so far. I am asking is a transport company is asking about the length for shipping purposes. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you found something

AhHa! Looking at a vintage Tradewind, are ya! Good choice, nice size, easy to tow, can you tell I love mine?

Airstream's stated length includes the tongue. Therefore, your living space is about 4 foot less than the overall length. A 25 foot Tradewind would be about 21 feet of living space or so. So for your shipping company the total length including the tongue should be 25 feet.

I agree. The Tradewind is a great trailer! But I may be a little biased.
