Hi the community;
I am bruno from France ( brunoffrance...) and the happy owner of an Overlander 27' from '71.
The blog -story was made to tell the uncommon story about our Airstream from USA to France, step by step in 2002.
After that I've tried to tell stories with this new toy and other american toys came in my life.
After the caravan , it was the pick-up truck to tow it, then an Harley-davidson, then travels in USA, my wedding in USA....
I try to post interesting subjects on what it's passion for my wife and I, with lot of pictures and comments ... from me.
hope you ll read it with great pleasure.

always at this periode, it's time to storage this silver lady and always the same feeling... We know it's for a too much long time before seeing it again in April or may.... for a new season .
This one was , for the first time, without problem... except a small leak at the bathroom dump. 8 monthes living inside with, each days, hot water and toilet running well ... that was a good test;Good lady !

No great distance to do for holidays as we stay at our " little paradise corner"...

New step: new bathroom...

After the new water heater, now mounted, I' ve decided , this year to do something for the bathroom... Sure, the old bath and the wash bassin have the genuine color awy and , even with a good cleaning and maintenance, they no more look great.
The idea for a low cost is: to paint them... but not with classi paint that 'ld gone away as the water arrive but the new resin paint that becam very strong whan dry and have the appearence of enameled porcelein.
the choice of color: simply...

New challenge, i know it's never easy to work on a vintage vehicle and the Airstream is ...
New water heater to install... yes you've understand, it's crazy !
Bought on Ebay at the best price on the market, I've made the choice to improve the system: instead of the old "only" gaz Atwood, I've taken the Gaz/electric/electronic... but no door so it was not a problem because I've always the old inox one and the look is better than the white one they sale with....
BUT what...

Hi the community;
The Airstream activity is beginning again, a bit late compared with the other years but we are just comen back from an Harley-Davidson event, in the south of France ( saint tropez ); so last week-end , it was time to get out of storage , our A/S ... water heater is waiting to be mounted ....
Always a great moment... few monthes that i haven't see it and always suspicious to find another damage, as it was in the past.... But all was right !
At the end of last...

This is the end...

Today is not the day i prefer; It's the day i let our Airstream in storage... yes the Airstream season is over and no more plans for this year !
This season is already finished and, Le´la & I haven't seen the time running. It 's always too short and we thing only one think, the next time we 'll live inside again... Not before next june but we have to be patient...

In storage , you can see I don't let the LPG bottles in place; it's forbidden and i don't want they are stolen...
