FT'ers w/ 'new 72 TW

Hi all!
Got a 72 TradeWind a few months ago.. We are fulltimers and the American Clipper mh we have blew the engine.. sigh..
So, the wife found her other 'love' Airstreams.. We bought a 72 tradewind 25' that I'm now in the process of restoring. Major problem the the roadside front skin.. Looks like someone jack-knifed the poor thing.. Also a week after we had it we had a flood.. Geeze.. So, now we're replacing the bulkheads and new flooring.
Great forum!

I have a 71 TW. Do you have a 71 a 72 or both? What is the layout there were several different ones. Mine is a goucho in the front and back. Maybe we can swap parts sometime. By western standards we are almost neighbors.
