New owners of '59 AS Tradewind 24'

Thought I 'd take a minute to introduce my crowd. I am Bob(44) and my wife Jan (40ish) and I bought a '59 Tradewind 2 days ago. It is in really great shape (as far as I can tell) though many things about it are not original. We plan on taking our first trip to a lake in central NC this coming weekend (Labor Day). We will only be a few miles from home in case we forget something inportant, like one of the kids.

We will be camping in a state park, so hopefully, if I need help, there will be a host camper around.

I am sure that we will be posting pics in the next few weeks, just because that's the kind of folks we are. I am also sure that many questions will arise, so watch for my newbie posts.

Talking Howdy from the Heartland !

Great to have you and your silver baby on board. Glad to hear that you have purchased a vintage trailer that actually can go somewhere without reworking the entire silver monster - like ours!!

Chat night is on Tuesday at 9:00 your time - see you there!

The registry is up to 67 including this recent one of bgarver's although I am trying to be patient on collecting his info. At the present time, 27 are CA and 27 are OH. Its neck and neck.

Early Tradewinds. Positively the best Airstreams ever made!
