I've made a deal to acquire this AS but the current owner doesn't know what year or type or length.

Anyone know their AS's well enough to ID this critter?

Many thanks!

It looks like a 70's Tradewind

md,

If you post the serial number, which is on the plate under the window in front of the door, there will be no guessing.

My guess is a mid 1970 Safari.

I agree with bill post the serial number. Probably a 70-75 safari 25'

I agree with Aerowood. I have a 73 Safari which does look like this but if you expand the picture you can make out Trade Wind on the name plate.

You can also look here. vintageairstream.com. This is also a great resource site.

The name plate on right side of the door.

Click the pic once then click it again - you should get the ability to expand it further. Land Yacht - Trade Wind. What year.....

Not a mid-70s Safari...it has 2 axles...

I was shocked to find out they built a single axle safari. Here is a pic of mine.

purman 07-21-2009 01:08 PM

ok, I see it now thought that was land yacht too. My neighbor has a 75 Safari with 2 axles. We tried to buy it from him but his daughter wants it. Plus I think he wanted over $5000 for it. Original owner. inside is in ok shape...

Chuck 07-21-2009 01:35 PM

they were all "land yachts" back then.

"safari" was available with single or double axle configs, I think through 1974.

edit: the single main door hinge puts it at 71. definately pre-73. (my door has 2 hinges.).

It looks like a 1972 Land Yacht "Trade Wind" by the door hinge, the rounded front and angled back, and the shape of the A/C shroud. The body is in good shape for its age.

Chatthayer 07-07-2017 01:18 PM

Looks like my '72 tradewind. if no grey water tank, it is '72 or before.
