new member - restoring 1970 tradewind

Hello I'm new to this site and I am getting ready to restore a 1970 25' tradewind I bought 5 years ago and have been using for a home away from home. I have no idea where to start but the individual I bought the trailer from has already redone the floors and recovered the couches. I would like to go as orginal as possible but don't have the refrigerator.

Welcome to the forums!
The Trade Wind was, in my opinion, the perfect size Airstream. Good luck with your restoration.

I have a 68 TW in process of redoing. Pretty much all you will need to know can be found on the forums.

Good luck

Welcome to the forums! I have to agree with Richard, the Tradewind is the ideal size of A/S, enough room not to bump elbows all of the time and small enough to get into out of the way places.
