A complete set of Airstream production records do not exist for all years at each plant, but some do exist, including 1964 California. The last 1964 24' Tradewind built in California was serial number 042S4200, but there were a few canceled orders along the way, so the total number built was a little less that 200 1964 24' Tradewinds in the California plant. Records do not exist for Ohio in 1964, so we can only guess that a similar amount, maybe slightly more since it was a slightly larger plant, were also built in Jackson Center that year.
I also noticed an error in my earlier serial number decoding for your trailer. The leading "S" on your serial number was moved to the position you see in the last serial number above. It was not "dropped" as I previously noted.
