The serial number indicates that it is actually a 1963 24' Tradewind with twin beds, not a 1960. Otherwise it looks nice - are the compartment doors present (they are missing in the photo's)?

I got to see my own '69 Tradewind over the last week while I was visiting my parents in Alabama. It's there awaiting some frame repairs to fix a bit of rear end sag. Spent four days in dad's 72' Sovereign at the lake in Florida instead. Spotted an old Avion pickup camper parked next to a house on the way there and a nice 34' Limited behind a Ford dually on I-10 East in Pensacola.

Joe,
If you mean the compartment doors to the left of the main door, I don't think so. They too have plexi-glass in them. I couldn't get a good look at the interior as it was raining this morning. I might go for a motorcycle ride this weekend and take a look at the interior and get some more pictures. I am not in the market for a vintage unit, but thought somebody might want to pick it up.

Clipper in Eureka CA

Saw the odd numbers of aluminum panels in my rearview mirror, so I pulled over to get a good look at a beautiful older AS. I wish I pulled out the camera, I think it had 54 Clipper hand painted in redish letters on the curb side. Sure was pretty.
It was headed south on 101, going through downtown Eureka CA.

Hi Hank and Lois,
You're only 14 miles from me. Hope you enjoy your stay. I have the street side tire off the trailer, just degreased the frame rails and will be putting on the Metal Ready so I can start the POR application tomorrow morning.

Seen in Blairsville, GA

We saw two airstreams within 10 minutes passing through Blairsville, GA early this afternoon. Both were heading south. One was a moho and the other was @30'.

Of course we didn't have ours in tow, but if you are one of these two, I was the weird lady in the BMW waving at ya!

Two sightings this weekend - met one on a two-lane road near Stanwood, Washington on Friday morning. Our enthusiastic waves were greeted with a slight nod. Saturday afternoon, we were walking the beach at Deception Pass State Park, and looked up to see an Airstream being pulled South across the Deception Pass bridge. Couldn't get the camera out of my bag fast enough to catch it, though.

We saw a 60's something Tradewind today in rural Edmonson Co. KY. Didn't look like it had been used in a while. I think I may go back to see if it is for sale tomorrow. You never know, a diamond in the rough or maybe one man's junk, I'm not sure......

How come no one ever sees or gets the WBCCI numbers when they see these trailers.
I hope that when we get our trailer back and start traveling if someone sees us they at least get our number so when they say something on here I know its me.
Maybe thats why not many say anything because they dont know if you are talking about them or not.

maybe the numbers aren't BIG enough? all kidding aside, i think folks are just being cautious drivers and co-pilots. it's easy to spot the trailer, a bit harder to read the numbers. we'll have to get you some red, white and blue trim or some flames!
