Wha?? Not this owner!

They don't have numbers for the most popular travel trailer ever made, the 1959 Tradewind.

Ball height

ALL of the ball height dimensions in that chart are WRONG.

All torsion axles settle in time. The loading is different for every coach.

The published dimensions are for BRAND NEW, OUT THE DOOR FROM PRODUCTION, ZERO PAYLOAD trailers.

The correct ball height for any Airstream or Argosy trailer, equipped with torsion axles, must be individually measured.

They can vary as much as 4 to 5 inches.

You had a typo there. You wrote Tradewind and you meant Pacer.


We don't need no stinkin' specs. We'll make our own specs.
