Hello from Northern Idaho

Hi to all!

I have two Tradewind model vintage Airstream trailers. I picked up a 1966 model, got it completely gutted. While searching local Craigslist adds for parts, I found a 1959. I have put the 1966 on hold while I focus on refurbishing the 1959.
It has been a fun project.
I have restored several cars over the years and a car project is easy compared the the trailer.
Been working on this project off and on this whole last year and still have quite a bit to do before we can take it camping.
I have some pictures posted on the Registry.

Full restoration of an old Airstream is not an undertaking to be done lightly, as you have found. Still, fun to do if you enjoy the challenge and will eventually get camping. I am sure yours will come out fine, well, both of them.

Welcome to the Fourms, from another Idaho Airsreamer.
