From the VIN number, it appears you have a 1960 Tradewind (24') with double beds that was built in Ohio.

Check this out to see if this looks like yours: 1960 Tradewind

Post some pics of ours - we all like pictures...and welcome to the forums!

Hi Vansteen and welcome to Air Forums. Shari, good job with decoding the serial number. Now all we need is a few pictures.

Trade Winds are a nice size. They are easy to tow and maneuver about. And they have a pretty good floor plan with separate bath, sleeping quarters, and sitting room. The next size smaller Safari doesn't have these three separate areas.

You are beginning a long and rewarding journey getting your old Airstream going well again. It's a great hobby.

Thanks for the info! Now at least I know what I've got! I bought this from a neighbor who started to gut it and turn it into a mobile pet grooming business. He found a retail space instead and sold me the trailer for $500.00. It still has the wardrobe and chest of drawers, toilet and tank underneath, but that's about it! One good thing is the A/C unit works and blows cold! I tried to post photos this morning, but not correctly.., I'll try again tonight.

Thanks again for the help!
