1973 Airstream Tradewind - New Mexico

Available Mid September

La Ballena our 1973 Land Yacht project

25 Trade Wind Wind Double

Original survivor

Versatile floor plan with rear bath double goucho. Most of the original interior cabinetry and Airstream storage systems are intact.

We got partway into our plans for an off grid tiny home and some unexpected financial needs motivate sale.

Great starting point for a mild remodel or really dig into a full renovation.

Partially stripped interior:


Front goucho

Toilet/ black water tank

The Good:

Open front area for options to build out

Brand new wheel bearings and tires

Tows very nice

Newer hot water heater

Original fridge and stove

Overall good shape

Electrical wiring intact and functional

The Bad:

Subfloor under rear bath should be replaced.

Recent weekend trip kicked up some rocks and broke both side wing windows.

Door latch needs to be rebuilt or replaced

Shower head fell down and cracked original resin sink.

The ugly:

Exterior skin could use a polish

Right rear quarter panel has some dents

Basic Needs / R amp;R:

Toilet ideally composting for eco friendly off grid living

Bathroom sink basin

Front Wing windows

Floor finish

Remodel potential upside here if you have the time and resources.
