Welcome to the forums.
There are no owner's manuals for pre-1964 Airstreams. The most you may be able to do is find operator's manuals for the individual appliances in your coach.

Or get a copy of the 64 manual from Secretarial Services and liberally translate it back to 62.

Helen Davis Secretarial Services
PO Box 484 Sidney, OH 45365
(937)492-8885

Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively. After 1986 the Owners Manuals included available service information.

Also the Vintage Airstream web site has a copy of a 65 Caravel manual and a number of the individual instruction sheets for a 60 Airstream.

Welcome to the forums, Tmoore. These old Tradewinds are great little Airstreams. You may find some manuals for your original appliances at the Vintage Airstream Club online library.

I've got a few original manuals

Welcome to the forums. I have most of the original manuals for our '65 if you need something specific I can copy it. Most of the systems from the era are pretty basic, and finding parts may be difficult. I chose to get rid of the old stuff and replace it with new (except the furnace, but it'll happen soon) To post a pic, click on the paper clip icon in the box you'd type in to reply to or start a new post and browse for the picture on your computer. Also note the size limitations a pic can be.
We are having an informal forums rally on July 20-22 at Findley state park if your interested in attending. Do a search for "northern ohio 2007" for more details... We'd love to have ya. --dave

Nice rig!! Is she ready to camp in yet? The Ohio rally is only 5 weeks away! If you need a hand, send a PM. I'm only working sporadically at the moment, and have a little time on my hands if you need extra help. --dave
