Welcome to the Forums and the world of Vintage Airstream ownership!
In many ways, the 1964
coaches marked the end of an era of Airstream design. Several features were seen for the last time on the 1964
- Door-Within-A-Door -- this was the final model year for this feature as the entry door and screen door would become separate units in 1965 and remain that way through the present.
- Jalousie Windows -- this was the final model year for this feature. While it is a feature that you'll either love or hate, it was in its last model year (personally, this was one of the reasons why I was attracted to my coach as my first SunWay RV in 1969 had all jalousie windows).
- Power converters for individual appliances -- this feature was in its last year as the Univolt was poised to take over providing power for these devices that included the roof vent fan motors, furnace fan motor, range hood vent fan motor, and water pump motor.
There was one first for the 1964
coaches and that was the inclusion of a Univolt as standard equipment which meant that all interior lights are of the 12-volt variety.
Good luck with your TradeWind!
P.S.: If your Trade Wind is a single axle, this would also mark the last year that the Trade Wind didn't have tandem axles as standard equipment.
