What year/model do I have?

This is what I recently got, I think its a late 40's Airstream Tradewind 18ft. The serial is 5037. It has the rear bathroom with kitchen off door side. Front couch/bed is missing. It has all square windows on the sides. What do the experts think, what is the year model size? I have a theory but was wondering what everyone else thinks.

Very cool find. It's in pretty good shape for it's age. It's a 1949 model.

Way cool, with California multi-piece end panels. We're all waiting with great expectation to see the pix on what you do with it!

I look and look and look for one......and you pop up with a nice one in Arizona. Do a nice job on it.
