Nice looking Trade Wind, but I do not think it is a 1975. Based on the battery door, bathroom layout and control panel location, I believe that it is a 1971. The VIN will have the correct information. Post it if you have any questions.

Welcome to the forums and Congrats on your new " labor of love". It sure looks better than ours when we got it, so I know it will be a beauty when it is done!

Did the 71's have 'plastic' wood veneer, or did that start in '72? The window over the kitchen sink is narrower than my 1972, but almost everything inside your trailer is identical to mine. Even the bathroom. The difference between a 1975 or an earlier trailer will be your lack of a grey tank, so please post the serial number located by the door and we'll be able to tell you exactly what you've got. Regardless, it's a nice looking trailer.
Welcome to the forums!
