I just wanted to drop in for a moment during my lunchbreak and express my thanks to all of you for helping me identify my next project. At this point I am going to assume that it is the 1970 25' Tradewind-Double.
I am looking forward to taking possession probably sometime in the next couple of weeks, and then I will likely take it down to Searcy Arkansas to the Airstream folks there so they can check out the bearings, brakes, and other priority essentials (advice welcome).
I'll need to begin a search for a truck probably to replace my existing 1994 Toyota Landcruiser Wagon which has a lot of torque, but is probably not the best tow vehicle for a 2 ton trailer.
I'd be interested to get some of the shared opinions here on what would be a good balance of tow power, economy, practicality, and reliability for around $10k. Hoping that is possible.
Many thanks again to all who have offered information and opinions here on my thread.
Getting some nice, albeit late, Fall colors here in NW Arkansas this week.
