We're about to take delivery of our new to us tradewind. Found her an hour from the house. From what we can tell (we're no experts). The exterior, while filthy appears to be in very good shape. There is one dent on the upper curbside front panel, we hope to be able to "massage " out. All the window parts, screens etc minus some broken glass are there.
The inside is another story. The PO disassembled it in an aborted restoration effort. He assures us that all the original interior was there and still is, though piled up in heaps.
We're planning a shell off remodel. Gantry's are assembled and waiting. Im hoping to salvage the galley sink, stove and fridge if feasible. Bathroom is coming out.
Our hope is two years work and then permanently park this on some land we own in the white mountains. Not sure of the year of manufacture yet, though the gas cylinders appear original and are dated 1959
Please any observations, opinions and advice are welcomed. Really looking forward to getting started
