A hearty welcome to another vintage Tradewind owner. Exterior pics look great, and you know we're all eagerly waiting for a peek at the interior.

Lucky guess sorta. I just thought about what would be the perfect airstream "find"! Lucky you! It looks like you got a great deal. Send some interior shots so we can all be envious. Airstream envy is OK (and a good thing) on this site.

Hi Zanad,
Looks like the wood is in good shape. I can't
see any delam. If the floor is solid (no soft spots) then you are way ahead in that department. Looks like you found a diamond on the edge of the fairway (not quite the rough )! Good luck with the resto.
George

Welcome aboard.
Looks like you've found a good rig to roll back on top. I expect things will come together quite well. Good pics

polishing (boing ......... boing)

he he he, Started piloshing with 2 cans of 5 oz mothers and i got a good section done.this stuff is great beacause their looks like a clear coat on the trailer but with this stuff i cant tell if thier's one on or not. I planned this project from the start: to polish it completly and go to ...and ask for a... ah nevermind im way to exited to tell what plans i got for this trailer. I even made a price guide to see what it would cost me. well heres the pics. notice that i dont have anything polished above 6 feet because i dont have scaffolding. I really did think I payed a bit much for this thing but heck ITS COOL.

I'm thinking you may have a 66' or 67'. Are the windows curved?

Looks like a mighty fine trailer!!

What are you using to polish with? You mentioned mothers, what is that? Are you using a buffing wheel to polish? Enquiring minds need to know!
