'75 Tradewind Landyacht Excella

Does anyone have any information about this coach? Didn't know there could be so many "names" for one trailer. I don't even see a '75 TW in the VAC archives or listed in the Airstream.com weights, lengths site.

Thanx, suz

We have a 1974 Land Yatch_Ambassador_International

I guess around that time, they went a bit crazy in labelling: all of 1975 names are either double or triple.

Airstream does list a Trade Wind LY in 1975.

'75 Tradewind-Land Yacht-Excella

I think maybe the earlier International and Excella were more deluxe in some way. In fact, in my old NADA book (only goes back to '76) it says to add $ for the International pkg.
Yes, the now gone Airstream.com weights and lengths had 1975 TW listed but nothing for the additional Land Yacht or Excella designations. There probably was no impact on the weights.

Check again your AS weight file: on mine it reads "Trade Wind LY", not very legible.

You are right about the old International meaning more deluxe. We have the details somewhere. I think one was an elaborate water pressure (must weigh 20lbs!!!)

Yup, you're right. It's the Excella thing. Where did you find the chart? I clicked on the new address in the forums postings but got no where with it. Got one of those "did you click on the wrong link" things.

List of trailer weights

I would advise to download it right now, you never know what other changes they will be making to their web page. (Airstream.com has a new look since these past days, and things got a bit confused at first)
