Just bought a Trade Winds

I just made a deal on a 1978 25' Trade Winds, just 140 miles from home. If all goes well we will pick it up on Wednesday, after I get my truck serviced. It actually will my Mom's trailer that I will tow up to my mountain property for her to use during the summermonths. And she will let me borrow it for a few weeks during the wintermonths. As soon as I sell my SOB Toy Hauler I will be looking for my own longer AS, or something similar, to park permenantly on my property. Oh, I'm so excited!!!


Here's a link to the Trade Winds...

Thanks Richard. I'm hoping for not too many big surprises.

Hey, that looks great. Hopefully the surprises will be few. Good luck on your recovery trip up the hill.

Great find.
We have the same floorplan in our "72 and it's the perfect balance of living space and storage.
Enjoy.

Tom.

Maybe you could bring the trailer to a 4CU rally this winter. I would like to check out the dinette in the front. We have the standard couch and have been thinking about making the change.

Funny you should say that, Richard. My plans were to take out the dinette and put in a sofa.

But....... seems someone else looked into buying this Trade Winds and the slight damage on the curb side that the seller mentioned turns out to be quite extensive. The previous prospective buyer contacted me and steered me to a picture she posted on the forum and the comments by the experiened AS owners she received. She was told to run from this trailer. So, looks like I will do that too. But thanks for all the congratulations. Hopefully I will find another, better, good deal soon.

Almost sounded familar

When I started reading this is reminded me of a thread that I had been following lately.
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f48/...eam-68714.html

The size and model are the same and it also had new tires. The year was almost the same and the area of the country was within reasonable drive.
