1978 Airstream Tradewind 25 - California

Title: 1978 Airstream Tradewind 25 - California
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

Eight (8) years ago, we scoured the U.S. for a 25' Airstream with Twin configuration. We were fortunate enough to find this amazing trailer in Ohio where it was under the loving care of a Dental Surgeon. He had meticulously maintained the trailer, refreshing anything tired while maintaining its originality. We purchased the trailer "sight unseen" and had it trailered (not towed) to Northern California. We were elated when it arrived as it was even better than we had expected. We continued where the previous owner left off. We have fixed anything which faltered. This past Fall, we replaced both axels and brake assembly's at a cost of over $4,000.

We have stopped using the trailer as much as we would like with all of the summer kid activities. It is time for us to find this trailer a new loving home. The following is a detailed list of the trailer by system. Please review and reach out with any questions. This trailer is a diamond, but not in the rough. It's a truly beautiful survivor, ready to take on any adventure.
