Send a message via Yahoo to overlander64
can you ID these trailers?

My guess would be that the trailer is a TradeWind with the center double configuration. I believe that I have seen at least one TradeWind with the center double bed arrangement that flipped the refrigerator to the streetside and the range and kitchen sink to the curbside. If the trailer only has one window beyond the entry door (over kitchen sink), I believe that this would point toward a center double floorplan.

Thumbs up Very good Jim! :)

If you get the serial number, that would help identify it's length/model.

Or, ask the owner....is it for sale?

Shari

First trailer

John,
The first trailer looks like Cat's '81 Excella 500 32' but maybe shorter. She does not have a window in the entrance door of her '81 but I have one in my '77.

Hunting shack

John,
I have never seen an Airstream other than mine where we hunt in the last 25 years. As I was pulling out from my last hunt a fella who has parked a small dark green for the last 4 yrs. in the same spot offered me $6,500 right there for my trailer. I told him I couldn't let it go for that but everyone has a price. He said he liked it's look and that he would see me the next season. Who knows, maybe there will be another Airstream in the hunting camp next year.
