Hi Ford

Welcome to the forum and it looks like you have found yourself a nice TW. We have a 66 and they are great trailers- not to big, but with plenty of room and lots of storage. I would not worry about the title typo. I would call the DMV and tell them of the expected error and ask them their advice on how to correct it. I would take care of it. I would not worry about asking the seller to do this. He does not care. He just wants to sell it!

Looking forward to some more pictures.

Looks close to what my 72 Tradewind was like. You'll find lots of help here bringing her to life.

Hi Ford, and welcome to the forums. Nice find in on the TW. Good luck. I think you can fix the title when you transfer it to Arkansas easily enough.

Best Regards,

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.

hey - fewpop - I was just looking - we are kind of neighbors - only 3 hours driving. I was up in your area about 2 weeks ago - My Neice got married at Rogers. Was a pretty drive through there.

Howdy and welcome to, Fewpop! Looks like you found yourself a nice one there.

The grey tank was added to Airstreams across the board in 1974, and with few exceptions wasn't available before that. This would only be of concern to folks that are going to camp in the wilds ("boondock") without benefit of sewage hookups that RV camps offer.

We look forward to seeing lots more photos, particularly of the interior!

If it's to be, it's up to me.
