1976 Tradewind questions

I am looking at a 1976 TW and have some questions. Do all 76 TW's have both a grey water and black water tanks? Did they come with a dinette in the front as an option, or was that a special order. I do not see a dinette offered in any of the AS literature I have looked at. Would a leaky front window cause rust where the hitch attaches to the frame, or is there something else to look at. Is the fresh water tank located under the front window when it's equipped with a dinette? Thanks BR

All Airstreams since 1974 had Grey and Black tanks. There are a few exceptions like the Basecamp, but all 76 TWs both.

You see very few dinettes in the 79 line. My guess would be it was a special order.

Hit attaches to the frame? That is outside, I don't understand?

The water tank in a 76 TW is like my 75 TW. The water tank is under the floor in the kitchen area.

Thanks for the reply, I meant the A frame where it attaches to the main part of the frame. But it has been sold to someone else, so my questions are now just for AS knowledge.
