I've scanned a number of documents and put them here:
https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=ae67f...2766057%212101
You'll find a users guide in the Tradewinds Owners Manuals directory.

Take all you need.

Thanks so much! That is a wealth of information. No doubt I will use much of it over the course of time. We just purchased this(picture attached) and it is our first Class A Motorhome. I hope that your experiences with National have been good.

Thanks for your offer. The other post provided a link to a wealth of information on the National 2000 Tradewinds which had already been scanned and converted to .pdf's.


It was very nice of you to offer!

Bill

Wow what a great paint job. It would be hard to recognize it as a Tradewinds on the road. It looks a lot newer than 2000. Good Find!
We have had a great experience with our Tradewinds. We bought it in 2007 and have had nothing but good luck with it. Sometime this summer we will be having the third annual National RV Orphans Rally probably in Colorado. Over the years we have had mostly turn of the century Tradewinds show up. It's never been a big rally, 4 coaches with a Dolphin and a Sea Breeze thrown in. Hope you can make it. Watch the stickys in the National Forum for time and place.

That is one good looking Tradewinds, maybe if we get enough this year everyone could bring a can of paint and we could paint mine.

Hey Joe

My Dad once painted his Crosley with Mom's Vacuum Cleaner. It didn't work out very well for him but who knows perhaps this year at the rally we could do your coach the same way. Here are some pictures of the things he used.

I knew it was an Electrolux before I saw it. My mom had one but it slid along on steel runners. It did everything.

Bill, sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread. As you read more of the National forum you'll find that we all love our Nationals. They didn't fold due to Quality or problems with their RVs. I have a 2001 39' Tradewinds with a CAT 300 and 6 speed Allison tranny. CAT can bump her up to a 330 by tweaking the computer, but I am happy with it as is. I live in the Salt Lake City area and have no problem pulling I-80 up Parleys Canyon. As you drive her and get a feel for it you will find you bought one sweet MH. I have looked at other MHs, but have not found one that I would trade this one in for except for a Beaver Marquis. But I would need to hit the lottery for that. LOL.
Welcome to the Forum, check out the pictures on Dicks signature, he has really done a lot to the interior, You should see what he did to the ceiling. If you come to the Orphan Rally, don't let the wife see inside Dicks or Vegas Dans Tradewinds, you'll be busy for the next year. If you have any questions, ask away, someone on here will have the answer or at least steer you in the right direction.

Unfortunately wife read thread and now won't stop without seeing inside of these other Tradewinds! I may never rest in peace! We will see if we can fit this into our schedule. Thanks, Bill
