Tradewind from NC to MI? I just inherited it from my grandparents but it is in no condition to tow (axle is shot). But I wouldn't want to seem ridiculous. I have no TV but a home to store it and am in no place to buy one anytime soon. What are my options? Thanks!
Welcome to the Forums. Towing your trailer home on an original axle shouldn't be a problem, providing you repack the bearings first, & make sure the tires aren't ancient, or just get new ones. There is a guy on the Forums, RJ Dominic , Flatcreek Enterprises who delivers trailers for many of my clients & for various manufacturers & for Airstream. He owns several Airstreams & understands the nuances of towing vintage Airstreams. He should be able to move it for you. You can worry about getting a new axle once you've got it home & you've assessed the trailers needs.
Good luck with your project, you've got a great era.
