I'll be picking up a 67 24' tradwind in a couple of weeks. I'll be towing it for several hours and wanted to do a number of things to it before leaving the sellers home.
-Repack the bearings
-grease the heck out of it
-reconfigure the wiring harness
-replace all four wheels & tires
The big thing is that the brakes are not wired up and are likely not functional. Anyone have a suggestion about trailering such a pod with a 2002 Tundra. I'm assuming I could take my time and go slow.
Couple questions for the group:
- Assuming a good skin and 60% original equipment, some updates. what is a fair market price range for a vintage trailer like this?
- I really need is a repair manual. Anyone know where I can find one?
Welcome to the Forum and good luck with your new trailer. I'll leave some of your technical questions for others to answer...but I can help you get started.
Q: I need an owners and service manual for my Airstream. Where can I get one?
A: The first owners manuals were published in 1964. Prior to that, the owner received a brown envelope containing parts lists and other helpful information on the accessories in his trailer. The VAC has started making these available in the Members Archive section. A service manual with instructions for performing service operations did not exist until 1972.
You can get photocopies of owners manual (1964+) and service manuals (1972-1986) from:
Helen Davis Secretarial Services
PO Box 484 Sidney, OH 45365
Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively. After 1986 the Owners Manuals included available service information
Original manuals are also ocassionally listed on e-bay.
