Welcome!

Welcome Glen, I'll give you a few places to look. Good photos and restoration resource here. 48weewind. A couple of forum links that will help here. Repairing/Replacing Floor &/or Frame. and Wee Wind. Do you have any photos you can share? Good luck and hope to see you on the road soon.

Your frame is the four inch and so the 5 inch outriggers and cross members will be of little help.

Click here to see the 5 inch outrigger.

You will have to make them yourself.

Congrads on your find.

I can provide aluminum crossmembers for the Wee Wind. I'm rebuilding one in my shop and have made replacements in my metalshop. Can also provide eyebrow over entry door and templates of various sections, underpans etc.

Hi, Thanks for your responces. Bad news. I had to sell the Airstream Wee Wind. Out of work and no Unemployment. Tough times. And property taxes do at the end of the month. I really wanted to keep this Wee Wind. But times are tough. It's going to a good place. And I'm sure it'll get restored where it's going. That's the one good note. I have a great eye for spotting Vintage trailers. So I'll find another some day. Best wishes to you all. Glen Leighton Belfair,WA. See some of you at the Tin Can Tourist Rally In Lynden Washington.
