A very special 24′ 1966 Tradewind that maintains as much of the original interior and character as possible while having been restored with many new, very functional features for the modern camper! We have owned this Tradewind for 10 years and had much of the work professionally done photos, receipts, and paperwork can be provided for all the restoration work.

We have towed the Tradewind many places and she is a pleasure to tow, travel, cook, and adventure in! Our enjoyment was keeping things as original as possible during the restoration she is a time capsule and just beautiful.

Some of the work that was done in the initial restoration 2012 :

rear bathroom removed and rotted subfloor replaced. All subfloor covered with a marine grade varnish and top/bottom aluminum skin reattached. This is a solid vintage Airstream now, ready for another 50 years of adventures!

new plumbing systems/line, new black and grey tanks, new toilet

new axles, electric brakes, tires last replaced June 2022

new insulation in rear section where work done

new Furrion electrical inlet

new belly pan

furnace removed and Olympic Wave 6 catalytic heater installed

new water heater

2013 Dometic AC

new weight distribution hitch for towing

new fantastic fan, one new vent, third vent original

Some other features and improvements:

professionally done, period appropriate sofa upholstery and curtains

new retro “boomerang” formica in kitchen, original formica in bathroom

custom restored Texas house trailer license plates

original, working Magic Chef oven/stove with paperwork

2005 Dometic Freedom refrigerator RM 2510.2

peeling clear coat removed and first buffing done, all she needs is elbow grease if you want that mirror finish!

original manual, lifetime warranty, and owner’s paperwork, quite a history of receipts and information. First owner in Seattle, Washington. Second owner in New Mexico. To the best of our knowledge we are the third owners.

1966 Tradewind double serial SO 24 6549 purchased from Central Trailer Exchange in Seattle, April 1966. 24′, weight 4080 lbs, hitch weight 418 lbs.

Please see the extensive photographs in the listing and feel free to call me with any questions. The exterior skin is in good condition, but the photos show a couple of dents/creases in the rear where I bumped into the garage roof line . The windows are the corning curved glass without any trim used for several years during this period. It’s a very sleek look. All the windows are functioning and roll open easily and are sealed. The fridge works well on electric, stopped switching over to gas and we haven’t repaired this as we rarely run in on gas anymore. The fresh water tank is behind the front sofa and the pump works well.
