Looking for a model number for a toilet

Hello,
Does anybody know what model of Thetford toilet came in a 1966 Tradewind? We need to buy some parts for the original toilet, but cannot read the model number on the toilet.

Thanks

Hi Tammy,
The Vintage Airstream Club website has the manual for a 1966 Overlander. I would venture to guess the Tradewind that year wasn't much different. On page 44 of the PDF document it says, "The toilet in your Airstream is a Thetford Slide-o-Matic, designed expressly for travel trailers." But that's about all it says.

Hope this helps.

I thought the title was "looking for a number in the toilet"... Like, number 1 or number 2. It's been a long day. Good luck getting your number!

Hey Tammy, looks like there are some "numbers" in this thread that might help.

Thanks, it looks like that number is it! Will have to see if we can still get the parts we need and get the toilet re-installed now.

my '67 has the original Thedford toilet and I found all the parts to completely rebuild it at my local Ace hardware store. I bought the parts about 3 months ago,cost about 150 bucks for every moving part.
