Friday May 20th: 2022 Current information as of Sunday May 22, 2022; The storm has passed and we are checking messages and covering some excellent questions here. In response to questions I am adding a photo of the Trade Wind Land Yacht in the Airstream Service Manual for 1973.

The question was " is this trailer a Land Yacht or a Trade Wind? Easy answer is the trailer is both a Land Yacht and a Trade Wind.The different name designations for 1973 Airstreams can certainly be confusing. The larger more costly 29' to 34' Trailers were the INTERNATIONALS. The smaller 21' up to a 27' were Land Yachts. The name Safari, Trade Wind or Wee Wind were used to designate the trailers size in length.

So settle the confusion, is this a 23' or a 25' trailer? Our Trade Wind is identified by the factory as a 25 footer while the Title says it is a 23 footer. The actual exterior length when measured from bumper to hitch is 24' 6" or rounded off to 25' which is important to know so you can pick the best parking space and orientation to hook ups.

Essential Towing data:

GVW=5800lbs

GAVW Front 2600 ; Back 2600 lbs

Manufacture date 12 of 1972 in Cerritos Ca

Serial L25T3 S2086 [ L= Land Yacht; 25=length;T=floor plan [ Rear Bath Twin Beds]; 3=model year as in 73; S=made at the Cerritos Ca factory;2086= sequential serial number

We have the Title and it is clear.

Always owned by non smokers.

Interior dimensions: The interior floor length is 21' 4" inches. Width is 7' 5".5 Height of center floor to ceiling is 78" floor to entry into sleeping area is 75" floor to entry into bathroom 74.5" floor under vents and AC 75.5. Main door height 66.5" X 28"

The outer Aluminum is straight all around.

As we gave the outer aluminum a good cleaning we noted that all the windows, utility and entry doors lock and work as they should. Trailer includes a new 1973; 23/25' Trade Wind Airstream Service amp; Owners Manual.

Items we update since 2012 2015: power converter; front power vent. AC ; Frig. new tires 2 spares on rims. Items we purchased new this month: A two sleeper/ Click Clack Couch; Sheets/pillows/comforters; also included are two 38"x 75"x 8" mattresses.

Includes all of the needed accessories for travel that we have such as the hitch with stabilizer bars, hoses, rolling Honeypot, RV power cords and hook ups. For more information send us a message, we will be happy to answer your questions and if it is not already addressed we will include it here with the others.

For about 28 years a Dr and his Wife traveled mostly the SouthWest kept her in good condition and stored her in out buildings in Lubbock Tx and Colorado. We purchased her in summer of 2012 and immediately removed the Univolt for a new Power Converter then updated the LP tanks, and waste tank outlet. Then we replaced the AC and the Frig. We have been busy this week cleaning her inside, Washing down the outer aluminum and getting power over to her. </p><p>This Vintage Airstream Land Yacht is ready for her next road trip.
