Was Her Great Grandparents'

This is the rear of a 1949 Trailwind with a young family. This Airstream was owned by the wife's great grandparents in the 1950s and 1960s. They traveled from Alberta Canada to Nevada, Arizona and Southern California each winter. The owners were both born in the nineteenth century and lived into their 90s.

What a treasure, and how wonderful for the great grandparents to have kept it.

Congratulations.

My parents bought the 1949 Trailwind from our Canadian cousins (the original owners) in 1969. The Trailwind was restored in 2011 pictures of the restoration are in the gallery section of my home page.
