What do I have here?

Getting conflicting information on what year this is and haven't seen one with the same window configuration. Can anyone identify the year and model of my Airstream?

Sorry I can't help with your questions but I'd like to tag along to see the answer.

And welcome to the forum. It will be great to see the progress as you resurrect this AS!

Not sure either, but this may, or may not, be helpful.

I would guess that it is a California built 24 foot 1968 TradeWind based on the VIN

aflycaster,

Wins the prize

Appears the drivers side has the Frig/Sink/Stove. With the long front windows, my guess table/twins up front, side double. Standard "Land Yacht" model (Not International).

Looks like the trailer has seen better days,

My question, what are the plans for the trailer, I live right down the road

Enjoy,

"What do I have here?"
Now that's a loaded question. lol
However, I think Richard gets the chicken dinner.
I think it is a 1968 24' Tradewind also. Definitely not 1962.

The Airstream Document Archive has most floor plans and specifications listed for many years of manufacture. Here is the link to the 1968 models:https://www.airstream.com/owners/doc...ive/year/1968/
And there is a floorplan exactly as described above.

That is a highly desirable model, as 1968 was the last year of the
'Twinkie" design....It is a series of Airstream known to be well built .....It does have sprayed on foam insulation on the frame, which can be good and bad....

Appears to be a 1965 “Money Pitt” �� sorry, I just could not resist. Good luck with the re-build.

What do I have here?

Look on vintageAirstream.com in the photo archive. The site also has lots of information on restoring Airstreams. Having the length from ball to end of bumper trunk, width, and some interior shots helps to narrow it down. It appears from the window layout to be a 67 or 68 Safari or Tradwind. I have a 65 Tradewind and it's not that.

Land Yacht is a trim level and not a model.

I have a nearly identical 68 Safari, although itís a 22 footer. The similarities are striking, so I believe as others have said, itís a 68 model.

1968 Tradewind

Looks very similar to my 1968 Tradewind - although mine was built in Ohio. If you would like pictures of what mine looks like inside just let me know. We have owned our trailer about 17 years and love her

Restoration material

68 Trade Wind is right. The name plate should say Trade Wind. Mine is CA built and has the same window configuration but different tail light surrounds. There is a VIN look up tool somewhere that will give you more info, but it's been a while and I forget exactly where - Airstream website?

I did a total restoration a few years back if you need info or pictures.

Rob
