1960 Airstream Tradewind 24 - California

Title: 1960 Airstream Tradewind 24 - California
We just listed our 1960 Airstream Tradewind for Sale on Airstream Classifieds.

Year: 1960 Make: Airstream Model: Tradewind Length: 24'

90% original, weighs 3500 lbs, single axle, tows easily and is a 9 panel classic with very desirable midships double bed. The aluminum body is overall in very good condition and could be polished to a mirror shine.

This trailer is a “park model” meaning it has no battery, fresh water or gray water holding tank so not suitable for boondocking but presents no problem if you camp using hook-ups. It would make a memorable guesthouse. For the past 5 summers it’s been my “cottage” on the coast but it’s time for a change. CA registration is current.

I paid $5500 for this trailer in 2007. It has undergone a "facelift" over the past several years including new aluminum 30# propane tanks, fresh paint on interior walls, Marmoleum flooring, fluorescent light fixtures, custom memory foam mattress, new curtains and upholstery, new Airstream baby moon hubcaps, new pex water line, new toilet and new Atwood propane water heater. In addition all window and door gaskets have been replaced and seams re-caulked, all electrical is working and the belly pan, cut by PO, has been patched and sealed.

What doesn't work:
propane wall heater
oven (gas burners on cooktop work)
refrigerator (never tried)
break-away switch

Problems I'm aware of:
soft spots in floor at entry door and in hatch under bathroom
will need 2 new tires soon
veneer peeling in some areas
1 of 2 screw type cranks on front ceiling vent doesn’t work
