Hello Fellow Airstreamer's

We just purchased our first Airstream... 1960 24ft Tradewind. We are currently getting her ready to roll in the spring. We are very busy replacing many components, but trying to stay as original as possible.
We also have 3 other vintage trailers... 1952 35ft Royal spartanette, 1959 13ft Serro Scotty Sportsman (currently being refurbished), 1954 32ft Pacemaker. They are all unique and special to us. .....
Looking forward to belonging to group, and sharing lots of stories and stuff.....

Here's some pics of our new "baby"......
She's a work in progress, but we were very lucky to find her in the condition she's in.
Not too bad, new wiring of course, new ext.lights all around, new wheels/tires, brakes, new floor going in soon......
We've had the gaucho couch redone complete with new foam. It's beautiful. Currently making new curtains to be finished soon.

Welcome the the Forums! There are a lot of Spartan owners as well on this site - you should get great feedback on your whole family of trailers. But most of all, welcome to the wolrd of Airstream'n!
