Welcome to the forum! From the numbers you have given, you have a 1962 California built 24' Trade Wind with twin beds. Check out this link and see if the pictures agree.
The late 50's and early 60's Trade Winds are very popular on this forum and you should have no trouble getting specific questions asnwered about your new trailer.

AZflycaster's right on a number of accounts. He's decifered the serial number and all I can add is that it was built in the Santa Fe Springs, CA plant. These are great trailers with alot of charactert and personality. Post pix when you can.
