Interior Parts Available 74 TradeWind?

PO removed the twin beds from the center section of my 1974 25' Landyacht Tradewind. He also cut down one closet to fit a futon in the center area. I want to restore it as close to the original as possible.

Can I buy the vinyl-covered woodgrain interior wall material anywhere? Can I buy the aluminum strips that attached these closet walls to the curved interior trailer walls?

Also can I buy the aluminum angle used to mount the twin beds to the trailer walls? How about the 4 horizontal aluminum beams that connect to this angle and come out to the center isle? These aluminum pieces have a copper-color finish to them.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Jim

If you keep a weather eye on the forums and run a forums wanted classifieds and watch ebay eventually you will find what you need. You might also consider the Vintage Airstream Club, but will also have to join WBCCI. Colaws RV Salvage in Missouri may also have what you need. I have some extra of what you need, but need to see what is there. What size wall material do you need?

Lumatic,

Thanks for the leads. The vinyl woodgrain wall material I need is a piece 29" wide by 40" high (grain running vertical).

Jim

There's an interior for sale in the classifieds. As usual, it's tough to tell what if anything is still available, but email to see if they have what you want:

I know one of the members has all kinds of interior parts for sale. Check with Jim and Susan (Full Monte). I got some nice parts from him and he did have a whole garage full of the interior parts. He posted that he had parts available. Check with him

Lothlorian,

Are you sure of these folk's member name? I've searched for it as Full Monte and can't come up with them, or anything close.

That would be us. I have a few of the parts you need. Send me a PM and I'll give you a buzz. Keep in mind that shipping this stuff can be tough because of the sizes of the material.

Jim

BTW, thanks Brian. I want to get some of that stuff out of my garage.

UPDATE:

On a whim I call PO last night. He says he may still have most of the parts for the bedroom locked in a storage shed in a private campground. He can't in until the place reopens in mid-April and said he'd look and let me know. I guess my bedroom restoration is on hold until then. Thanks for your help!

Jim

Something Different?

The Metal pieces are like gold to mount the panels and attach. But unless you have affinity for plastic woodgrain, I'd look at it as a chance to UPGRADE!
Real wood veneer panels aren't that expensive to buy and cut and stain to match the overhead tambour and colors. I did it in my 72 Tradewind and don't miss the look or the smell of the old.

Rich, have you seen any threads where someone replaced the vinyl-covered panels with say ¼" veneered plywood? I'm thinking that shouldn't be a horrendous amount of work, and could have a big payback.

I'd love to brighten up the interior of our coach, but I'm leery of painting it...

Wood over the old Laminate

Yes I posted some threads on it and pics of the finished product. It was fun to do. Started with the front area and then moved on to the bedroom and then replaced or covered about every plastic wood I could find. Before (bottom) and after (top) pics

Yeah, that's it, you did a great job! I found the thread and re-read it. Sounds like more work that I thought it might be.

Oh well, what are summers for?

like most things with a vintage Airstream it's a journey not a destination. Once I started putting in the real wood there was no turning back.
