Brand new to Airstreaming

Hello everyone, from the beautiful state of Oregon. We are excited about our recent purchase of a 1968 Tradewind. The previous owner is a good friend. It's early, but I'm sure he will remain a good friend. We also own a Cozy Cruiser Teardrop...so, we are really fond of aluminum.
Reading some of your comments, we feel this is going to be a great trip. Our questions and comments will surely sound more inteligent in the future.....but does anyone have a good resource for an owner's Manual?
Thanks in advance for guidance.

Hey neighbor (sort of),

You're right in the heart of RV country with Country Coach there and Monaco and Marathon just around the corner in Coburg. You should have no problems finding someone to work on your rig!

Welcome to the Forums. Don't forget to use the 'search' feature often. You'll probably find what you're looking for in here.

I'm not even sure if this is how we respond....but, I took your advice and went straight to my answer. The "Secretarial Services" sight dit it for us....and then some. It's like asking dad a question and he says "why don't you ask your mother?"...and you say, "I didn't want to know that much about it". Kidding!, my wife is reading over my shoulder.
Thanks again, Bill

Welcome aboard,
Have you tried the factory or ebay. The factory may be able to help. Manuals do pop up on ebay from time to time
