Depends on your abilities. If you love it enough to invest countless hours and $ 10K, go for it.
If not, stop now and get a newer unit. rehabilitating Airstreams is not cheap, and takes a long time, is what I'm getting at.
I do believe that Safari size trailers are amongst the most popular and useable, so it will always be a desirable model. Safari's are the largest "little" Airstreams, whereas Tradewinds seem to be the smallest "Large" Airstreams.
