I just joined the site. What a great site ! I recently purchased a 1962 Tradewind that is mint and ALL original. Not a thing has ever been modified. Not even a nail hole in the walls, etc. All original paperwork from day one and any and all updates that were ever sent out by AS. The funny thing is that this has an exact Safari Interior of the same year. Exact down to each detail. Is this unusual? Well anyway, Merry Christmas to all in the club and I really look forward in chatting with you all and learning. My serial number is 24DS/SO835. All of the hand written envelopes are still here and in great condition. All of the labels inside cabinets etc are still there. I will take pics as I can and send them. I am currently living in this as it is in such great shape. Anyothers with the same vintage, etc please send a note.
Take care and thanks in advance.
Willy

Willy, welcome! Wow - sounds like you've got quite the time capsule there! Can't wait to see some pictures (I'm sure others will chime in and request them too!) Thanks for posting and keep in touch!

Great! Another Tradewind Owner

Willy, it sounds like you've found a real treasure complete with all the trimmings. I can't wait to see your pics. Having all the appliance manuals and related papers means so much. Take pictures of EVERYTHING! Having pics available of a vintage trailer in original condition and good shape can be an invaluable reference for many. And they can come in handy if you have to disassemble and repair something. Welcome to the forums.

Fantastic

Boy. You're got all the vintage owners drooling. What a find.
I think we all can agree that when you post your pics in the Members Photos gallery this would be a marvelous Christmas Gift to all of us.
Welcome to the Forum, happy Airstreaming and a joyous Holiday Season to you and your family.

Tom.

WOW Great to hear from all of you. Nice welcome to the forum. I will borrow a digital this weekend and post pictures. I will try to get these posted today, (Sat. Dec 23rd.). Should I post pictures of all the brochures, letters, updates, etc as well as interior and exterior? How many pictures am I allowed to post as I will post as many as all would like to see. Will check later for reply and what others in the forum would like to see. Happy Holidays.

Welcome to the Forums. Even though I am not now a vintage owners, I think that the old guys are really neat. I would love to see some photos of your new baby. Best of luck and we hope to see you on the road.

Welcome. Where did you find your new toy? We all like to hear the story of how one comes upon "their Airstream". Looking for these wonderful trailers is part of the fun. Of course there is the constant danger of buying more and more and more of them once you catch the addiction. Very few of us are able to settle for just one. PICTURES PLEASE

Pictures

Here are a few pictures.....this is suppose to be a 1962 Tradewind.....It has a complete different interior and window layout, etc that I have not seen before. This is my first attempt with a digital camera and uploading photos. Not sure if I am doing it right or if the complete picture will show up as I had to resize them. I will try these and then send several more. Thank you all for your patience as I am learning this.

IMHO, it sure looks like there may have been some previous mods on the cabinets above the front gaucho/dinette and other areas. I'm no expert, but these look like previous owner upgrades. Anyone else have an opinion?

Welcome!

I forgot to welcome you to the forums!...........you have a very nice vintage trailer there......even more pics of the exterior would be helpful! It's good to see some AS'ers in the midwest (I grew up in KS). You don't see many folks with AS's in the Heartland!
