1959 Airstream Tradewind 24 - Saskatchewan

I am selling my parents pride and joy. To say that this Airstream was loved and treated well is an understatement.

The axle was replaced about 15 years ago and works well. The wheels and tires are in great shape as well. The skin of the trailer was polished to a mirror finish but could use another to freshen it up. The dual 30 pound propane tanks are about 6 years old and are polished as well to match the trailer.Fresh water tank is 17 gal, black tank is 10 gal and there are dual grey tanks that total 17 gal. There are custom made aluminum rock guard panels to protect the front lower portion of the camper. All exterior lights have been converted to LED. It comes with a Reese load leveler hitch with sway control. It pulls easily with any half ton truck or equivalent.

It comes with an entire kit of electrical cords in varying lengths, extra sewer hose, leveling blocks, etc.

Keep in mind that this Airstream is over 60 years old and almost all of it is original, so the cabinetry is a little marked up and the aluminum skin does have some wrinkles and bumps that show it s age.

Issues The door fell off a few years ago but it has been reinstalled. The door closes tightly but may need to be adjusted to improve the fit. One or both of the grey tanks have been leaking. He suspects that some rough road may have caused a wear spot or a crack. The linoleum is curled up in a few corners but it s in good condition especially with the carpet runners covering much of it. The 2 powered Fantastic Fans need a little TLC and I will see if I can get them working or replace them.

I have many more pictures that I can send so please feel free to ask for more.

Very nice. You can see by the custom storage boxes that your folks were very creative and organized travlers.
